Smoothies are a great anytime treat that can be both tasty and healthy for you. And, you get to decide just how healthy you want to make it. Smoothies are an excellent breakfast idea or a filling snack in the afternoon after a long day of work or studies.
You can serve them as a side to a breakfast muffin, or they can be a stand alone breakfast depending on how much protein you add.
I also love a good smoothie in the middle of the afternoon as a pick-me-up when I’m feeling sluggish. I usually whip up two. One for me, and one for my homeschooling teenage son, who is always, it seems, hungry.

Smoothies are delightful drinks that usually contain some sort of protein like yogurt, milk, peanut butter or whey protein powder, and sometimes a combination of those things. Mixed with different types of fruit, vegetables, and ice for a cold, refreshing, yet filling drink.
A smoothie can be whipped up in no time at all with a good quality blender. I use an Oster blender and love how quickly I can prep a delicious treat, and then give it a quick wash and dry for the next time I want to use it.
