It’s always easier on the weekends to prepare and enjoy a leisurely breakfast. You’ve got ample time to chop up veggies, create a tasty frittata or maybe whip up blueberry pancakes using local flour. During the week, life can get a little more hectic. So what’s a 100 Mile Eater to do?
Whip up a Smoothie – they make a super quick and easy breakfast that you can sip while getting ready or take to go. We’ve got three tasty smoothie recipes that use local and seasonal ingredients. For each of the following recipes, blend ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. We like to puree the fruit with a little milk or juice first to get them really smooth before adding the other ingredients. Each recipe makes 1 serving. Enjoy with a slice of 100 Mile toast or leftover pancakes. We pre-made some buckwheat scones to go with our smoothies.
The blueberry juice makes this smoothie slightly tart. Feel free to sweeten it up with a little honey if you prefer.
