Busy mornings with little to no time for breakfast? This Peanut Butter, Berry, and Rice Breakfast Smoothie has got you covered. Not only is it an energizing and tasty way to start your day, but it’s also easy to switch up, you can have a different smoothie each morning!
Start with a hearty, easy base in a blender: our Carolina® Ready to Serve White Jasmine Rice – or your preferred rice grain variety. Then add peanut butter, coconut milk, cherries, baby spinach, honey, some ice cubes, and blend it all up. Pour it in your favorite smoothie tumbler with a lid and you are ready to go.
Not a big fan of coconut milk? You can use anything from coconut water to almond milk, to your preferred plant-based milk, they all work well in smoothies! Just make sure you add enough solids to give your smoothie that perfect shake texture.
If you’re not the biggest fan of eating veggies, smoothies are a great way of adding them to your diet without having to taste them. Baby spinach and kale are great additions to pack on the benefits without dealing with the taste. The peanut butter and honey’s sweetness make it just about impossible to detect these sneaky greens. Feeling bold, add a little algae, such as spirulina, or chlorella to create an interesting color.
And for those who are just not into veggies, load up on fruits! Rice, milk, and your favorite fruits will surely make for a delicious breakfast. Make things fun and varied by making a different smoothie each day: strawberry/banana Mondays, mixed berry Tuesdays, pineapple/mango Wednesdays… your options are endless. Add a final boost by sprinkling with nuts, ground flax, shredded coconut or chia seeds.
Make this a superfood smoothie by swapping the rice with our Carolina® Jasmine with Quinoa Blend and enjoy all the benefits of quinoa.
