Healthy Breakfast, Made Easy: 5 Flavorful, Fitness-Friendly Smoothie Recipes to Make in the Mornings

Starting off the morning with something fresh and healthy sets the tone for the entire day. I've been blending my breakfast for most of the past 6 months, and it's changed my day. It's fast, easy, and tastes great. Plus, you can make the mornings hum along faster by preparing the portions ahead of time. I use single-serve sandwich bags packed with the ingredients, store them in the freezer, then just add water and blend. 

I've found about a dozen fit well in the freezer and make a quick meal on the go.

My favorite blender is the single-serve NutriBullet 900 watt. The blender cups are easy to blend then take along with just about nothing left to clean up on the way out. As far as my daily Boost, I use Vega Proteins & Greens Powder, and a scoop of Chia Seed for an extra superfood bump.
