RECIPE: Breakfast fruit smoothie


I’m not really one to sit down and eat breakfast in the morning, I need something quick and portable. For a couple weeks I have been experimenting with different smoothie recipes and I have finally come up with one I really enjoy.

I have a citrus allergy so I have to be very careful with the types and quantity of fruit I eat. Every day I have been introducing more and more fruit into my diet. When I feel myself having a reaction (my face turns bright red and takes on the texture of a strawberry, it’s really quite attractive) I pull the amount of citrus back and try again in a couple days with more.

I FINALLY found a fruit juice I can drink without having an allergic reaction at all — watermelon juice! I didn’t even know they made such a thing until I found it at Walmart the other day.

Here is what I came up with that takes good and I don’t have a reaction to. This is a recipe for a double batch of smoothies. I drink the whole batch in a day, 1/2 for breakfast and the other 1/2 about 30 minutes before I go to the gym. I make a week’s worth at a time and keep them in the freezer.

Breakfast Fruit Smoothie. (Go Red Sox!)


  • 1/2 cup fat-free greek yougurt
  • 1/2 peach
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 3 rings of canned pineapple
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of watermelon juice


  1. Peel and slice peach
  2. Combine peach, blueberries and pineapple in a Ziploc bag and place in freezer.
  3. The night before you want to drink the smoothie, take the Ziploc out of the freezer and let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. In the morning, combine contents of Ziploc, juice, yogurt and a sliced banana in a food processor/blender.
  5. Blend until smooth.
  6. Enjoy!

I prepare a week’s work of the peach/blueberry/pineapple bags at a time and keep them in the freezer so it is super quick to put together in the morning.

Here is the approximate nutrition I have come up with. This isn’t a really low-calorie recipe, but it is a meal replacement in my case so it still works for weight loss.

  1. Watermelon juice?!?! I didn’t know there was such a thing, but now that I know, I MUST try it! That recipe looks delicious. I am going to try that this week!

  2. Yummy! If you leave the fruit frozen and add a couple of ice cubes to the mix you could make a lovely frozen frappé drink for summer…I’m not sure where in the world you are but I’m from Oz (Australia) and it’s hot here right now.. or at least it will be when the monsoonal rain stops 🙂 Good luck and I’m tagging along for the ride 🙂

    1. I’m in America, so we we’re in the middle of winter. Feel free to send some of that warmth my way! I went to Australia while in college for a couple weeks. I fell in love with dragonfruit while I was there and have been searching every grocery store I come across and no one has them. So if you could eat one for me, that would be fabulous!
