Are you constantly on the move? Sometimes, our busy schedules get the best of us, and important meals are neglected because of it. Unfortunately, people tend to skip over breakfast the most, and we totally understand why. Who doesn’t want those extra five or 10 minutes of sleep?

Everyone loves to sleep in, but it is important to give your body the proper nutrients it needs to make it through the day. Sometimes, a cup of yogurt just won’t cut it. Luckily, there’s a way to get in all of the most important nutrients and save time: Make a smoothie.

Smoothies make the perfect meal for several reasons. If you’re short on time, you can take them on the go. If you have a list of foods you like (that go well together), you can blend them and enjoy them in one drink. Finally, a majority of homemade smoothies are made with fruits, vegetables, milk or yogurt, among other things, which makes them healthy and nutritious.

Some smoothies feature dairy, others consist of a majority of fruit. There are even smoothie recipes out there that call for nothing but veggies! If you are looking for a smoothie that has it all, we’ve got the perfect recipe for you.
