When we think about what to drink in the morning, typical beverage options include coffee, orange juice and tea. So, why do smoothies tend to get the cold shoulder as a suitable liquid refreshment for breakfast?
While some might find the idea of gulping down a frozen concoction a tad too much to start the day off with, the fact of the matter is that there is no official rule dismissing smoothies from becoming a traditional breakfast beverage. In fact, why not combine the nutritional health benefits and antioxidants of green tea with the incredible luscious taste of a smoothie? The result is an eclectic blend of vitamins and minerals that is able to satisfy your sweet tooth without having to feel too guilty about it in the morning.
