Just blend and go.
Sip your way to a healthier breakfast by blending your produce each morning. These smoothie recipes will get your day started off right by packing in nutrient-rich fruit and vegetables, plus protein-filled yogurt and milk for an energy boost that will keep you going until lunch. And unlike what you might get from store-bought options, they prioritize actual produce instead of the juices, sorbets, and sweeteners that can add tons of sugar to your cup.
Our Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances Lab also tested the best blenders for whipping up the smoothest, creamiest drinks. The Vitamix E310 Explorian nabbed our top spot, but check out Black + Decker XL Blast Drink Machine as a budget buy or the NutriBullet Balance for single-serve options. To make sure nothing goes to waste, store your ingredients in freezer-safe bags or containers for up to nine months. Smoothies can separate within a few hours in the fridge, so mix everything up when you're ready t0 drink. If you need to prep drinks ahead, adding a teaspoon of lemon juice before refrigerating can prevent oxidation. Ready to get started?
