3 smoothie ideas to kick start your mornings

At our house we make a morning smoothie almost daily. It’s a super healthy way to kick start your day and is a super easy way to get your kids to eat some fruit in the morning. Due to the festivities over the past couple of weeks, however, we fell off the smoothie bandwagon. Now with Christmasbehind us and the kids going back to school in just a few days it’s time to get back to our regular routines, starting with healthy, energizing breakfasts. Here are a few delicious smoothie ideas that’ll make you feel like you’re eating dessert for breakfast. Just throw the ingredients in the blender in the order given and blend away. Enjoy!
