A fruit smoothie is a great and healthy breakfast for people on the go. Smoothies are the perfect excuse (although who needs one?) to use some of B.C.'s yummiest treats—from fruit such as blueberries, strawberries or peaches, to yogurt from Island Farms or Birchwood Dairy, to honey from Chilliwack Valley Honey. Some of our favourites include peach, pineapple and coconut and blueberry banana. Smoothies can also be made using frozen yogurt, frozen bananas, ice cream or even soy milk. Try a shot of Baileys Irish Cream in a chocolate banana smoothie for a weekend indulgence.
Tip: Coconut milk from a can will keep in the fridge for 4 to 5 days.
