The spring is here and like many I am enjoying the weather as it is slowly beginning to warm up. With that said, aside from the warmer weather, I also like to take advantage of the fresh fruits and such, especially around breakfast time. So when we were sent some of the R.W. Knudsen Just Blueberry to try and add to our breakfast menu, I was excited to check it out and add it to some of our favorite breakfast items!
I like that when we add the various juices from the Just Juice line up, we get juices that are unsweetened and that are 100% juice! Which helps to not only eliminate any sugars that we do not need in our diets, but also helps when it comes to preparing healthy meal options for my family, like when we add the Just Blueberry to a blueberry and banana fresh fruit smoothie!
With the blueberry and banana fruit smoothies, I know what is going in them, and I also like that they make for a quick, take on the go healthy breakfast option that my whole family can enjoy. For the smoothie you will need:
1/2 cup of fresh blueberries
1/4 cup Just Blueberry
1 cup ice
1 cup vanilla yogurt
Gather all of the ingredients and put them in a blender and blend them together until you get the consistency you are looking for. For the above recipe you can get 2 servings.
Then for a great breakfast that the family can enjoy together at the table that is healthy and perfect for weekend morning breakfasts, I made some steel cut oatmeal with some fresh blueberries and the Just Blueberry added to it! For the oatmeal you will need:
steel cut oats, cook the amount of the oatmeal you will need for your family as per the directions on the oats package
1 cup of fresh blueberries
1 cup of the Just Blueberry
Once the steel oats are cooked into your preferred oatmeal consistency, add a handful of blueberries and mix in the oatmeal. Then mix in a desired amount to taste of the Just Blueberry. I swirled it in to our oatmeal to give it flavor and also give it a fun look for the kids to enjoy!
We found these recipes along with others from the R.W. Knudsen site to be great for ideas when it comes to finding meals to make for our family! Also along with the recipes that can be found on the R.W. Knudsen site, we also found these tips from the people at R.W. Knudsen to be very helpful when it comes finding ways to stay healthy:
· Create a nutritious and simple breakfast. If you’re bored of smoothies, try a smoothie bowl instead. Simply blend, pour into a bowl and add your favorite toppings. We’ve included a recipe card for our Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl to inspire you!
· Avoid excess sugar. New federal dietary guidelines suggest reducing sugar consumption, especially the kind that is added to food and beverages. R.W. Knudsen Family Just Juice contains unsweetened, 100% juice, making it a breeze to cut back on unnecessary sugar.
· Schedule time for yourself. It’s easy to get caught up in life’s chaos. Set aside 30 minutes to do something you enjoy, like talking to a friend or going on a jog. By taking a mental break, you’ll be better prepared for your busy day.
· Add a burst of flavor. The R.W. Knudsen Family Just Juice line is perfect for imparting pure fruit taste to any meal. A dash of Just Cranberry™ juice gives this recipe for Cranberry Quinoa Pilaf with Almonds its subtle zing.
Making the Just Blueberry from the Just Juice line at R.W. Knudsen a great choice to add to your breakfast menu! And to help with making those breakfast smoothies and more, the wonderful people from R.W. Knudsen would like to give 2 of my readers each their own bottle of the Just Juice!
