Here is one of my tasty, easy jump starts. I was taught this smoothie from my athletic and health conscious son. Only 4 ingredients produce a quick and delicious smoothie any time of day and every season.

Quick Breakfast Boost Shake Ingredients – for 2:

16 ounces (2 cups) orange juice
1 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
I orange, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2-1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add ice to blender if desired, best served chilled at once …or refrigerate.


We prefer the thick and rich Greek yogurt.

For added crunch and nutrients add nuts (almonds) or sun flower seeds before or after blending.

You can always toss in some berries (frozen works well), or a few banana slices to make it even tastier each time you serve this breakfast boost.
