Start Your Day with a Delicious Morning Blend

Admittedly I’ve never been a great breakfast eater  – unless it’s a “special occasion, big stack of pancakes” kind of breakfast. The guilt of ignoring the most important meal of the day for years has finally caught up with me, but I’ve found the perfect solution: an obsession with green smoothies.

It’s the perfect way to start my day with a boost of nutrition. Getting in a serving or two of fruits and vegetables right off the bat makes me feel like I’m doing my body good. In addition to the health benefits of my chosen morning blend and the delicious taste, it’s also a time saver for me. I’m able to whip a smoothie together in no time in my blender, pour a big glass, then easily clean up. I just add a drop or two of dish soap to the blender carafe with some warm water and whiz away. It’s so easy!

I’ve got a great recipe for a Mean Green Smoothie recipe that I did on the current season of Kelsey’s Essentials, but I also love picking up some inspiration for new blends by following @simplegreensmoothies on instagram. They post pictures, tips, and recipes almost every day to make any green smoothie addict swoon.

What’s your pick for a healthy start to the day?

Kelsey Nixon shares her passion for the basics on Kelsey’s Essentials, a series showcasing tips, tools, & techniques that no home cook should be without.

Kelsey lives in New York City with her husband Robby where she spends her days developing recipes and cooking up a storm. She has a cookbook scheduled to come out in 2013.
