But when I wake up late at 7:30, have to be out of the house by 8:00 and barely have enough time to make sure my hair isn't a rats nest, it's hard to fit an entire meal into my morning routine.
This makes pre-made smoothies my perfect on-the-go breakfast.
Bananaberry (strawberry, banana)
1 small-medium sized banana
5 medium sized strawberries
Splash of Milk
1 spoonful of greek yogurt
Banaberry is what I grew up drinking when we made smoothies so it's extremely homey. Plus the banana and strawberries will help to fight depression, increase your fibre intake, and improve overall health (vitamin C).
Citrus Berry (orange, blueberries, raspberries)
Ingredients:1/2 an orange
1/2 cup of blueberries
2/3 cup of raspberries (I used frozen)
Splash of orange juice
This smoothie is packed full of antioxidants and vitamin C to improve your heart health as well as ward off pesky infections and even diseases in later life. It's also a super refreshing drink if you need that morning kick.
Cast-Away (mango, pomegranate)
2/3 cup of pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup of water
2 fresh mint leaves
Sadly this smoothie is as close to an island getaway as I'm getting. Benefits include its ability to clear your skin of imperfections and strengthen your immune system (thanks to the loads of antioxidants you've packed in).
