Breakfast Smoothies for Weight Loss

AJ, who originally contributed this recipe to, calls his recipe breakfast “frosties”, but I would call them banana breakfast smoothies.

Here is AJs story: “I have lost 30 lbs in the last year. Healthy eating is the way to go. Would like to share this recipe that I enjoy. I lost 9 lbs in 2 weeks and had one of these frosties every second day. Wasn’t one bit hungry and was amazed when I got on the scale. I usually don’t loose more than a pound or so now and then. I think the calcium really helped drop those lbs.”

His tip is to slice the bananas beforehand and freeze them in a zip lock bag. Then they are at the ready any time you want one of these tasty frosties.

Whether you are looking for weight loss or just love a delicious and healthy breakfast smoothie (or any time smoothie), try this one out.

Variation: Instead of the cocoa, change it up by adding 1/2 cup of your favorite berries. Blueberries, strawberries or raspberries all make healthy breakfast recipes.
