5 Super Simple Smoothie Recipes to Power Up Your DayStart your day fresh & blended with these easy recipes

The alarm buzzes, and you’re thinking, here we go again. There’s lunches to make, backpacks to pack and, and, and – the list seems never ending some mornings. When is there time in the morning for YOU? For the healthy breakfast you need to get you through your busy morning?

Mom always said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And she was right. Your first meal each day kick-starts your metabolism, getting everything running at optimal efficiency after a good night’s sleep. What’s more, it gives you the energy you need to focus on your tasks and get stuff done. There are many, many studies that link eating a healthy breakfast to living a healthy life. Just a few of the benefits you’ll reap: better memory and concentration, lower levels of LDL (the bad cholesterol your doctor warns you about) and reduced chances of developing diabetes, heart disease and obesity.

Enter the almighty smoothie. Simple and quick to make and, with the right ingredients, a healthy source of everything you need to get you through your morning – and stay healthy all day long. We recommend packing ziplock baggies with all the ingredients you need the night before and pop them in your freezer for easy mixing in the morning. Ready for your daily dose of healthy?
