Purple Power Breakfast Smoothie

Friday mornings are a perfect time for an all encompassing healthy smoothie. I have to admit that I do not eat the best on Fridays. We usually go out to dinner and I often eat lunch out as well. When I want to pack in lots of good stuff, I always turn to a green smoothie. Here's a little concoction I came up with this morning. I added the wheat germ and oatmeal to make it more hearty and to add some fiber and vitamins.

Purple Power Breakfast Smoothie
1/2 cup rolled oats (I used quick oats because it is all I had on hand)
2 tbsp wheat germ (good source of fiber, Vitamin E and Folic Acid)
1/2 cup plain yogurt (good source of calcium, phosphorus, riboflavin-vitamin B2 and iodine)
1/2 cup pomegranate juice (antioxidant and good source of Vitamin C, E, and Folic Acid)
1/2 cup orange juice (good source of Vitamin C, Folic Acid, and Potassium)
1 cup soy milk (I used Silk Omega 3 DHA)
1 handful baby spinach (good source of iron and calcium)
1 Acai Frozen Smoothie Pack (antioxidant)
1 cup frozen organic wild blueberries (rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants, as well as anti-inflammatories)

Makes 2 servings
