Last winter I started drinking green smoothies for breakfast and now my weekday mornings don't feel quite right without one. (Weekend mornings, on the other hand, are a different story – bring on the coffee, eggs, and hash browns!) There are so many different ingredients that can go into a breakfast smoothie, and I'm always changing it up and experimenting. I've learned that I don't really care for berries because of the seeds (though seeds don't bother me at all if I eat berries fresh), and that simply adding some water is the best way to control a smoothie's consistency. And instead of adding ice to make it cold, I slice and freeze my fruit ahead of time.
My current favorite: water, some plain greek yogurt, a big handful of spinach or kale, and a little each of orange, banana, and pineapple. I always add a spoonful of flaxseed, too. I also just picked up some shelled hempseed, wheatgrass capsules, goji berries, and chia seeds, but I think I'll gradually introduce those into the mix. It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the possible add-ins!
Do you have any favorite breakfast smoothie combos? I'd love to hear.
