Looking for something quick to prepare and filling to eat in the morning can be a little tricky. Why’s that?

How To Make Healthy Smoothies

Smoothies are a delicious breakfast idea, but it is easy for a smoothie to go from a healthy filler to a sugar-loaded cup of carbs if you are not including the right ingredients.

When making your smoothie, opt for the fruits and vegetables that your family love. Instead of sweetening them (if necessary) with sugar or sweeteners, try mixing in a teaspoon of honey, a dash of coconut milk or even throwing in a ripe banana or two to make them really tasty.

Save Time In The Mornings!

But what if you simply do not have the time to be standing in the kitchen, chopping fruits and vegetables and making smoothies in the morning?

Then why not try making batches of your favorite smoothies and adding a little lime or lemon juice to the pitcher to keep the fruit fresh in the fridge for up to a day.

Fancy keeping the smoothie train rolling for even longer? Then why not try pouring your delicious creations into mason jars and then popping them in the freezer. Simply remove the jar from the freezer back into the fridge the night before and it will be like new again for you in time for breakfast. There will be nothing keeping you from kick starting the morning with your five-a-day!
