Sometime during our second year of RVing, we realized that we had been sucked into the vortex of unhealthy breakfast habits. Too many pancakes, too many bagels.
This was truly a puzzle because at home we ate very healthy breakfasts on a daily basis. Yogurt, oatmeal, and eggs were in regular rotation and popular with both kids and adults.
We knew we had to take back breakfast. One of the benefits of having an RV is that it is your home on wheels and you can bring your healthy habits with you on the road. No excuses. We could do quick, easy, AND healthy while we traveled.
I’ve shared some of our favorite healthy RV breakfasts before. But my favorite favorite? My favoritest of the favorites?
The number one reason the smoothie is such a great option for families with young children is that you can jam it full of fruits, veggies, calcium, and protein and know your kids got a blast of nutrition early in the day.
Then you get to chill out a little on the food front.
So I decided to share my smoothie shopping list with our readers. I generally don’t follow recipes, but instead I stock a bunch of basics that can be combined in different ways to keep things tasty and interesting. I always follow the same basic formula: base liquid, fruits and veggies, something tart to balance the sweet, and a healthy protein or fat.
Smoothie Stock Up List:
- Quarts of Yogurt (plain or vanilla)
- Almond Milk
- Coconut water
Fruits and Veggies:
- frozen mixed berries (strawberries, cherries, blueberries, raspberries)
- frozen pineapple/ mango
A bit of tartness:
- 100% cranberry juice
- Almond butter
- Peanut butter
- Coconut oil
It might sound like a lot, but the list is easily tailored to the length of your RV trip and your own personal taste. It also includes items stored in the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer so you should definitely have room for everything.
