Grapefruit-Orange Breakfast Shake
This shake is not too sweet and filled with fiber, as it uses the fruit itself and not just the juice. Recipe comes from a book I am really enjoying, called A Good Food Day: Reboot Your Health with Food That Tastes Great by Marco Canora, with Tammy Walker.
I am still reading the breakfast chapter, but he's already got me buying steel-cut oats and chia seeds and putting stuff like cilantro in my smoothies. Someone take my temperature, quick.
A GOOD FOOD DAY'S
ODE TO ORANGE JULIUS SHAKE
1/2 grapefruit, peeled
1/2 orange, peeled
1/2 t. vanilla
1 T. honey
1 c. ice
1/2 c. plain yogurt (Canora recommends full-fat plain Greek yogurt; I use fat-free regular plain yogurt)
Put everything in your super duper blender and whirl away. (Note: I blend the grapefruit, orange, vanilla, and honey first, in one batch, then add the ice and yogurt and blend again. I find when I put honey in the blender at the same time as anything frozen, the honey just congeals into a sad little ball at the bottom and refuses to mix well. Poor little honey.)
