Daphne Oz’s Superfood Breakfast Smoothie

Posted on

According to Daphne, this is filling and will also help keep your digestive tract moving well. I’ve gotta get a blender–and psyllium husks.

  • 1/2 cup yogurt (plain or flavored but avoid artificial sweeteners)
  • 1 cup fresh fruit of your choosing
  • 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
  • 1/2 banana (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husks
  • 3 ester-c capsules 500 mg (about 1 tbsp)
  • 1 cup ice (or frozen fruit and skip ice)
  • Water and juice to blend for consistency

Combine ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy (Note: Of the 1 cup fruit, Daphne used 1/2 that cup with blueberries. It’s your choice what to make that 1 cup consist of). If you have trouble blending, try adding a little water to thin the smoothie.

**Make sure to have at least two 8 oz glasses of water with each serving of smoothie to help the psyllium husks expand so they digest properly.**

(Daphne’s Tip: Freeze the smoothie to make ice pops)

I wondered how many calories this was so I ran it through MasterCook. If you use frozen strawberries and regular yogurt and go ahead and throw the 1/2 banana in, the calorie count is 350 calories. That’s fine for a meal. This should be quite filling from the sounds of it. But if you use fruit juice, milk or milk substitute to thin this out, you’re adding extra calories. Just remember that!

You can get psyllium husks at health food stores or online.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
