Recipe Save – Diabetic Breakfast Smoothie

I prepare this in the evening and blend it in the morning for a quick breakfast out the door. I just put the fruit & bran in the freezer and the rest in the fridge.

Actual Cooking Time: No Cooking Required
Number of Servings: Single
Special Features: Quick to Prepare (under 30 minutes), Kids can help make it
Meal Type: Breakfast & Brunch, Beverages

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Fruit
  • 1/4 cup Bran flakes
  • 1/4 cup Ice cubes
  • 1 cup Skim milk
  • 1/2 cup Plain yogurt
  • 2 Packets of Equal
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Dash cinnamon
  • 1 Dash nutmeg

Preparation

  1. Prepare the night before. Combine fruit, bran & ice cubes and put in freezer. Combine the milk, yogurt, sweetener and vanilla and put in the refrigerator.
  2. In the morning combine both the frozen items and refrigerated items in a blender or Magic Bullet. Add the cinnamon & nutmeg and blend until smooth.

Cook’s Notes
Cinnamon & nutmeg are optional. I prefer bananas and strawberries for the fruit and I typically buy frozen strawberries and slice ripe bananas and freeze them so I always have fruit on hand.
