Fuel You Up Smoothies
You don't need to stop at a convenient store for an energy boost. A homemade smoothie of blended blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, spinach, apple juice and milk gets you going.

2 cups frozen strawberries
½ cup blueberries
1 medium banana, cut in chunks
½ kiwi sliced
2 cups fresh spinach
½ cup ice cubes
1 cup fat-free milk
½ cup unsweetened apple juice
Combine strawberries, blueberries, banana, kiwi, spinach, ice cubes, fat-free milk and apple juice in blender; blend until smooth.
Pour into cups.
Cook's note: For an extra jolt of protein, add a slice of toasted whole-grain bread topped with peanut butter for a balanced, on-the-go breakfast, or add a low-fat or fat-free stick of string cheese for a tasty snack.
