Smoothies for breakfast are my favorite thing to enjoy in the spring/summer months. They can be light, refreshing, and make the perfect accompaniment to a balanced breakfast or snack.
To start your smoothie off right, fill the bottom of your blender with a vegetable like kale or spinach, sometimes I will use cucumber for added fresh flavor. Next, add your dairy which is the plain greek yogurt or milk if you would like. Fruits can be whatever you like and consider fresh and frozen as options here. Fresh definitely add more sweetness, and I suggest trying to put your over ripe fruits in the freezer as an icy cold smoothie is why favorite! Experiment with all different colors to make your smoothies eye appealing. A serving of healthy fat for added fullness could be some avocado or peanut butter. Top with some crushed ice and water (if you used yogurt), blend and enjoy!
Be sure to add these ingredients to your grocery shopping list one week and enjoy the endless creations you will make.
