A Regular Breakfast Shake

Does your busy schedule occasionally upset your digestive tract? Sure, you’ve seen those TV commercials about probiotics, but have you priced any of those products? I have. According to Dr. Oz (and countless other medical and nutritional authorities), you’re dollars ahead if you follow Grandma’s advice and eat your prunes.

You don’t like the taste of prunes? I certainly don’t. But here’s a suggestion: hide them in your fruit smoothies. I add 5 (one serving, according to the package) prunes to the following recipe, which serves 2. Tastes sweet and keeps your plumbing running smooth, too.

RECIPE

Breakfast Shake

Ingredients:

1 cup milk or soy milk
1 orange, quartered and peeled
1 apple, quartered and cored
5 prunes
1 cup frozen peaches or assorted frozen fruit

Directions:

Add ingedients in the oder in which they are listed to the Vitamix container. Secure lid. Set to Variable Speed 1 and turn on the machine. Gradually increase to Speed 10 then flip switch to High. Process for 1 minutes.

Makes 2 servings.

No added sweetener is necessary because the prunes are very sweet. If prunes still are a turn off for you, think of them as dried plums. 🙂

You don’t have a Vitamix? Ask Santa for one now. Click through the ad in the sidebar and get free shipping. You won’t regret owning a Vitamix. The more you use it, the healthier you’ll be!
