Instead of Coffee....

Instead of drinking coffee in the morning which gives me some palpitations, this is my new morning drink. Carrot and banana smoothie. Today is my second day drinking it. It's so refreshing and I feel so full afterwards. Well, who wouldn't? I drink two glasses in the morning and I drink the remaining during noontime or in the afternoon. I also share it to my parents. Have you tried this smoothie? What do you drink in the morning?

Oh, I like that, my dear Arbie! But, because I easily catch colds, I will enjoy a glass of that by 10am, my snacks. I still drink coffee in the morning during a light breakfast. Before that? A warm glass of 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar & 1 tbsp pure honey! Wowowie!

I drink Tim Horton coffee . . and eat a small bowl of white rice, 2 medium hard-boiled eggs, a hotdog, and sliced tomatoes. This kind of breakfast makes me going, and going, and going, like a good battery! . . What do you eat for breakfast, pretty lady?!

I like to drink fruit juice, but not in the morning. I still need coffee in the morning. I think you can try different combination, such as papaya with yogurt and milk.

I drink coffee because it is good for me and since bananas have a particular enzyme in them naturally, it is unfortunate my blood type cannot metabolize it properly so I no longer consume that delicious fruit the Type O's have no problem digesting effectively . . .

Yeah I am the blood type gal who follows that now since way back in 2006 I really needed to change my life around and this was one way that has done wonders . . . I am a type AB+ and bananas have a protein in them (like all food sources do) that blood type AB+ just does not allow for proper digestion and metabolic response, I feel lethargic, gassy, and just ill--- and now I know why. @brokenbee

yes, and I drink decaf sometimes. But since it's already summer, I don't want coffee anymore. Hihi I just add 2 to 3 medium sized carrots, 3 bananas, 2 scoops of powdered milk or 1 small can of evap and 2 tablespoons of sugar. And I also add ice til the glass pitcher (oops, is that how you call it) is almost full.

I'm not really into smoothies but my mother-in-law is a great fan. One time though I think her little experiment went a bit too far. She mixed several fruits and vegetables and turned them into a smoothie that made her vomit immediately after drinking it.

whoa! Hahahaha! Yes, there are fruits and veggies that don't taste good when blended. I didn't like the taste of cucumber when mixed to carrots. Hihi

Yes, me too! That's why I can't drink much coffee. I love my new drink. But I think I should not add ice in my smoothie if I have to drink it in the morning.
