Smoothies are my favorite breakfast during the summer. They are quick and easy to make, and portable for mornings on the go. I also love their versatility- I make a smoothie almost every morning for breakfast and never get bored.
My go-to has always been peanut butter and banana smoothie with a little chocolate (because everything is better with chocolate). Such a delicious combination, and the perfect fuel for a busy morning or post-workout snack. However, when I started paying more attention to what I was eating, I realized my favorite “healthy” smoothie wasn’t as nutritious as I had though. With a big dollop of peanut butter, sugary yogurt and the occasional chocolate chips, it was more like ice cream than a healthful smoothie.
