I am a very low maintenance kind of girl. Not that I am low maintenance, but I want everything else to be low maintenance. I've found (made up) a great breakfast recipie that keeps me satisfied most of the morning and has very low points, two to be exact. It is for a smoothie but I've found I hate messing with my blender.
You see, at one time in my life I fancied myself a gourmet cook. And while I lacked the skills to be one, by golly, I was going to have the tools! So, you'll find my kitchen chock full of Breville, Kitchen-Aid and All-Clad cookware and appliances. So, in that line of thinking I also have a blender that, if called upon to do so, could shred a two by four block. It is big, bulky and of all dumb things to buy, a glass pitcher. I find that dragging it out day after day, washing it day after day is not my idea of low maintenance. So....
I bought a magic bullet. This little machine really is easy for my breakfast smoothies. It has self contained cups, quick on and off, easily washed/rinsed blades. It has everything I need to help with my breakfasts (which I am finding is the hardest meal to manage).
I haven't put all of its' abilities to the test but for my breakfasts, it's awesome!
Here's the simple recipe I use.
1/2 C Skim Milk
1/2 C Lowfat Plain Yogurt
and then any kind of fruit you want. (fruit has no points you see).
Blend, add a straw and drink up. If you add frozen fruit you can also have a lovely sorbet for an afternoon snack.
