Smoothie Recipe – The Staple 3.5

Trying to concentrate on weight loss some more, I decided to cut back on the last version of my “staple” breakfast smoothie in order to make room for more food later. I’ve chopped it down to 465 calories from 870. Now instead of drinking it in thirds from 8-11 am, I drink it in halves from 8-9 am. I’m not missing the extra serving convenience wise (now I bring just one cup to work), supply wise (less trips to the store to maintain supply of ingredients), or hunger wise.

I simply cut everything except the greens in half:
1/2 cup cranberry juice (the real deal, not the sugary crap)
1 cup water
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 handful kale
1 handful spinach
1/2 cup mix raspberry, strawberry, blackberry
1/2 cup blueberry
1/2 carrot
1/2 banana
1 tablespoon of crushed flax seed
1/2 scoop of whey protein
