Smoothies are my favorite type of breakfast. They are fast to make and easy to consume. There is not much of hassle any doing any of the two. Quick, easy, tasty and healthy, what more do you need for breakfast. If you blend a new recipe everyday for smoothies even your family won’t complain that you are serving them the ‘same thing’ for breakfast everyday. If you are thinking of new and innovative smoothies that are tasty and healthy and your family should love them, here are a few of my favorites. The best thing about these smoothies is that each serving is less than 200 calories, now that’s a good new, right?
