Decadent Breakfast Smoothies

Decadent Breakfast Smoothies

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day; however, many of us are in too much of a rush to eat a proper meal in the morning. With a little preparation and meal planning, this doesn’t have to be the case! When pressed for time, we typically fall into a breakfast rut, eating the same things over and over. I like cold cereal as much as the next person, but I don’t want to eat it every day. (Once or twice a week is plenty for me.) Hitting the fast food drive-thru on the way to work may be convenient, but it can wreak havoc on our wallets and waistlines.

These decadent breakfast smoothies are great for on-the-go breakfasts, or really for any meal! Below are a few of my favorites. For protein powder, I use a vegan, organic, non-GMO brand, Vega. If you’re avoiding dairy, it’s a delicious choice. If you’re choosing a whey protein powder, be sure it is organic and non-GMO so you’re not getting unwanted chemicals or hormones in your breakfast smoothie! I use all frozen fruit in my smoothies because it creates a milkshake-like texture that I love. Use more or less liquid to create your desired thickness. Which one will you try first?
