Now that school is back in session, our mornings have become 100 times more hectic. There are some days when I feel like I cannot seem to get a healthy breakfast into my kids as they are running out the door, not to mention a healthy lunch for myself amidst busy deadlines working at home.
Busy mornings are my favorite time to bring out the blender for smoothies. While preparing lunches for the kids the night before, I cut up the fruits and veggies I need to make a delicious and nutritious breakfast shake.
When the morning comes, I simply throw the ingredients in, press blend, and pour. kids are thrilled and I am happy to send them off to school with full bellies.
I figured I would combine the two and try them out for breakfast as well. It was a hit!
