Smoothies are a great and healthy way to start your day, but throwing one together can seem intimidating. What ingredients do you use? Do you need a special blender? Will it even taste good?
The fact is, smoothies are really quick and easy to make! Even with greens added. A green smoothie is a great way to get a daily serving of veggies without having to choke them down. Seriously, you can't even taste the spinach.
A few good things to keep on hand include frozen mixed berries, frozen bananas (freeze them with the peel on, then thaw in the microwave before using), yogurt and almond milk.
Also, a good blender will do wonders. Try a single serve blender. It's much easier for clean up than a standard size blender, and it's also small enough to just leave out on the kitchen counter when not in use.
Here are a few easy and delicious breakfast smoothie recipes to get you started on the path to smoothie-bliss. Simply combine all ingredients and blend until smooth!
Pro tip: Make it kid-friendly by adding a cup of milk or almond milk and a tablespoon of peanut butter or Nutella!
