Imagine replacing the hassle of making your breakfast in the morning; the time saved on cooking an egg for your sandwich, the time saved on waiting for your morning coffee to finish dripping.
Throw in these fruits that can be pre-cut the night before you sleep, just remember to place them in the fridge. Throw them into the blender next day morning. Viola~ Breakfast, ready to go!
If you hav the family, it is even better! Make your partner or children a cup to go as well! Especially children, they tend to hate eating fruits and vegetables, but smoothies are easier to consume for kids and sweeter.

You can drink a smoothie anytime, any meal, it doesn’t have to be breakfast.
Taking control of your own health being can help achieve a sense of empowerment. Fruits and vegetables are the appropriate fuel to supply your body for energy boosting. It also helps your brain to stay focus, improve mental clarity and memory!
Fresher The Better
It is advisable to use organic ingredients for your smoothie to avoid pesticides. The fresher the ingredients, the better the taste it will be, not forgetting the surplus nutrients in them. I mean, who wants a stale smoothie? Ugh.
Fix For You Sweet Tooth
Adding sugar into your smoothie would just defeat the purpose of making a smoothie right? Dates are great to replace sugar and help sweeten your smoothies. Remove the pits and soak them at least 1 hour before blending.
Honey, maple syrups are excellent substitutes too.
Turn Up The Bassssse
Other than using water or ice cube as your base, you can also use almond milk, milk or young (Thai) coconut water kefir as the base, it provides sweetness and a significant amount of electrolytes and promotes digestion and nutrient assimilation.
If you are a tea person, you can try using a healthy tea for your base to boost nutrition!
