Keep the Beat Orange-Almond Smoothie


Some people enjoy breakfast in the morning and others don't. If you are part of the "no breakie" crowd you should at least have something besides coffee to fill you're empty tank in the morning.

That's why smoothies are perfect. They are easy to make and you can take them on the run...just like coffee (but more nutritious). Here's one of my favorites when I need some tasty fuel in a hurry.

Keep the Beat Orange-Almond Smoothie

1/2 cup (4 oz) freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup (4 oz) low-fat milk
1 medium banana, peeled
1 tbsp liquid honey
1/4 tsp almond extract
Pinch ground nutmeg (optional)

Blend all ingredients in a blender for 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and sprinkle nutmeg on top.

Makes 1 serving
