Rainbow Breakfast Smoothies

Let’s eat the rainbow! Or, I guess in this case – drink the rainbow through a straw, (or scoop it up with a spoon… however you like to enjoy your smoothie is really up to you).

Continuing our “grab & go” series with Almond Breeze, (see parts 1, 2 and 3), the idea here is that you assemble all of your fruits & vegetables ahead of time so that your morning smoothie is fast and easy to make. Chop up your fruit (and veggies if you want a green one), and pack them away in freezer safe containers or baggies – I made enough for 5 days a week – because weekends are for waffles.

Add in some superfood fun if you like, all of these are optional, but they’re tasty nutritional additions to play around with:

Pour in enough almond milk to get your blender moving – and then – well go get moving! It’s time to start the day :). Happy Monday!

Notes
I use a vitamix – if your blender isn’t as powerful, let your frozen smoothie ingredients thaw at room temp for just a few minutes.
