During the school year, it’s all too easy to let your eating habits slip. To help fight this, the Fulcrum has some essential recipes to keep you full and fit all year long.

Everyone knows that green smoothies are healthy, but this one is delicious and filling too. The pineapple will satisfy that sweet tooth, while the greek yogurt and spinach give you enough protein and nutrients to keep you moving through your day at top speed. It only takes a few minutes to make and it’s portable, so it’s a perfect way to stay healthy and motivated through midterms.

Ingredients:

1 banana

1 handful of spinach

3/4 cup almond milk

1 cup diced frozen pineapple and/or mango

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt

Pro tip: substitute the frozen fruit or almond milk with your favourite type of each.

Directions:

Step 1: Add the first three ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.

Step 2: Add the frozen fruit and greek yogurt, blending in between.

Step 3: Add more almond milk to get the right consistency (if needed).

Step 4: Pour into a glass or travel mug, and enjoy!
