4 Go-To Morning Smoothie Recipes

It’s so important to start your day with the fuel your body needs, and having quick and easy go-to smoothie recipes on hand is a great way to help get you there! No more half-eaten bagels, missed breakfasts, or coffee overload for you – immune boosting and healthy smoothies are likely just the thing you need.

The key is to add variety to your options, which means having a healthy fridge and pantry stocked with ingredients like spinach, berries, stone fruits like avocados, peaches and mangos, nuts, seeds and more. Our diets often don’t include enough fruits or vegetables; smoothies allow you to get more veggies into your body than you would over the course of a normal day, and they’re easy to make!
