So let’s just say Rocco inspired me to become a smoothie queen.  Recreating his Berry Citrus Smoothie could not have arrived at a more perfect time in my life.  Switching from yogurt for breakfast to smoothies has been a Godsend to me.  I started experiencing stomach issues related to lactose and decided to experiment with omitting my daily yogurt for breakfast.  Starting my day with a smoothie made me feel so much better.  Using a frozen coconut milk product also eliminates the use of dairy in the morning.  I am not 100% convinced that all dairy is my enemy just yet, but eliminating it for breakfast is a start.

I have to tell you that my breakfast smoothies definitely make me feel like I am having dessert for breakfast.  As a sugar lover, this pleases me to no end.  Getting to add a bit of chocolate in this smoothie puts a smile on my face every morning.
