  • Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so get started on the right foot with these 5 incredible smoothie recipes.

  • So, to get started, I'm going to share just a couple (of) tips to make your smoothie-making run smoothly, right?

  • First up, you wanna use frozen fruit. Now, the reason is you don't wanna be watering down your smoothie with a whole bunch of ice, so freeze your fruit yourself.

  • I like to freeze my fruit in a single layer on a baking sheet; this prevents it from all clumping and sticking together.

  • Next, when it comes to using your blender, be sure to add your liquid first near the blades; that's gonna help your blender run a little more smoothly.

  • Finally, don't be afraid to prepackage your smoothies and leave them in the freezer.

  • These are great 'cause all you need to do in the morning is roll out of bed, pour these into your blender with a little bit of yogurt and some juice and you're off to the racesbreakfast is served.

  • I love this sunny tropical yellow smoothie to start off my week. It's perfect for a gloomy Monday morning to get you going.

  • So, we're gonna start with a half a cup of pineapple juice.

  • Now, if you don't have pineapple juice, it's fine, you could also use orange juice or even almond milk in this recipe would work just as well.

  • To that, we're going to add a half a cup of Greek yogurt.

  • This is going to add a little bit of much needed protein into our smoothie, then we're gonna top it with some tasty fruits like some frozen pineapple, some mango, and some tasty banana.

  • Finally, we're gonna hit it with a little bit of grated ginger just to liven it all up and press blend; monday morning breakfast, taken care of.

  • I call this "My Orange Glad, it's not Monday anymore Tuesday smoothie".

  • We're starting with some orange juice, about half a cup.

  • To that, we're gonna add about a half a cup of Greek yogurt for protein, one peeled orange frozen, half a peach, also peeled and frozen, and finally, one shredded carrot.

  • I love sneaking vegetables into these smoothies when no one's looking; they'll never even taste it.

  • Come hump day, I'm ready for something bright and beautiful like this ruby red smoothie that features watermelon and strawberries and fresh raspberries. It's absolutely delicious.

  • We're going to mix it all up with a little bit of almond milk and some Greek yogurt.

  • I'm using vanilla flavored Greek yogurt for this recipe and boom, there's breakfast baby.

  • By the time Thursday rolls around you're stressed out to the max or at least I know I am.

  • What better way to start your day than with a whole lot of antioxidant goodness?

  • This purple smoothie is so delicious and features some of these most antioxidant-rich foods.

  • Into our blender, we are adding a half a cup of pomegranate juice.

  • If you don't have pomegranate juice, cranberry juice will also work.

  • Then, we are going to add some vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt; we've got some frozen blueberries and frozen blackberries and even some beautiful freshly pitted cherries.

  • When they're in season, buy a whole ton, pit them and then freeze them so you can use them all year long.

  • Ladies and gentleman, congratulations, you made it to Friday.

  • Now, in order to prepare for the epic night you have ahead of you, probably best to get some greens into us early.

  • So, I'm gonna show you my "tasty Friday green goodness smoothie".

  • All right, so it starts with about a half a cup of OJ, half a cup of vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt, to that, we are going to add two peeled and frozen kiwis, and then a whole avocado.

  • Trust me on this one, it's gonna add some creaminess and some texture. You're going to absolutely love it.

  • Now, believe it or not, you can freeze avocados. You'll never be able to eat it on its own again but it is great in smoothies.

  • And then, we're gonna add a handful of greens and you won't even taste them because of this beautiful kiwi.

  • Also, keep in mind that smoothies are an excellent place to improvise.

  • So, once you've got these basic recipes down, you can add all sorts of things to them like protein powder or hemp seeds or chia seeds; any kind of greens, you can sneak those in. You won't even know they're there.

  • These are incredibly delicious and packed full of nutrients.

  • I hope you'll give them a try and let me know how it goes.

  • Be sure to tweet me or Instagram me a photo of what you come up with in your own kitchen. I love hearing from you.

  • And be sure to subscribe for more great recipes just like these.

  • Happy Monday, Happy Tuesday, Happy Wednesday, Happy Thursday, Happy Friday.

  • And comes Saturday, it's time for eggs Benedict; I have a video for that too.
