Valentine’s Day Strawberry Muffins and Smoothie

Comments

I made Strawberry Streusel muffins the other day and thought it would be cute to put together a sweet and simple Valentine’s Day breakfast. The muffins turned out super moist and very delicious! I added my everyday morning smoothie and fresh strawberries to make the breakfast complete. I make a strawberry-banana smoothie with plain greek yogurt, a small amount of honey, a tablespoon of Very Green from Trader Joe’s and water. You can also add in extra boosters like Acai Powder (I like this one) or protein powders. I make Zan a separate smoothie with mango and chocolate whey protein powder…  We’ve been doing this for years and love it! So my perfect Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed would be homemade muffins and my healthy strawberry smoothie. This would be a great morning treat for kids on V-Day too! Recipes are below : )

 

Strawberry Streusel Muffins
I used this recipe here for the muffins, but also added 1/4 cup brown sugar to the batter as well.
I also baked the muffins in large muffin tins like this one.

 

Streusel Topping 
I used this recipe and it was SO good!
You sprinkle the streusel on top of the muffins before you bake them.

 

My Strawberry-Banana Smoothie
3/4 cup Fresh frozen Strawberries
1/2 banana
1/2 cup non-fat plan Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons Very Green powder
1 tablespoon Acai Powder 
You can add a handful of spinach as well, I do this if I have it in the house : )
1/2 to 1 cup water depending on how thick you like your smoothie.

 

Blend all of the ingredients together and you’re done! I use the Magic Bullet every morning
to make my smoothie… Seriously, we’ve had the thing for over three years and it’s still going
strong, even with my crazy everyday (two-three times a day!) use
