Strawberry Banana Breakfast Smoothie

I'm sick. The on again, off again runny/stuffy nose, pounding head, sore sore throat kind of sick. And let me tell you - it's getting pretty old. I keep reminding myself of Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail - tissues all over the house, still in pajamas mid-day, still in bed mid-day - and not wanting to accept flowers from anybody! (okay... maybe not that extreme, but still.)

So to state the obvious - my post is definitely an easy, quick, go-to remedy for any sore throat. This breakfast smoothie can be altered in many different ways - add a little spinach to make it a green smoothie, add any kind of fruit, juice, protein powder - do what you want to make this "your" go-to breakfast smoothie. I know I'm going to be making it long after I'm feeling 100% again!
