  1. 5 Ridiculously Easy Breakfast Smoothie Recipes That Will Power-Pack Your Day

    You’ve probably heard a time or two that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

    That’s because it’s the most critical way to replenish your energy levels and prepare your body for the day to come.

    Plus, studies show that people who eat breakfast tend to be in better health and have better concentration and memory, plus have a lower chance of diabetes, heart disease and weight gain.

    Diet-to-Go offers a breakfast-lunch-dinner plan and a lunch-dinner plan. For those on the lunch-dinner plan, one option for a breakfast substitute is a quick-and-easy healthy morning smoothie.

    With that in mind, we’re showing you how to make easy, 5-ingredient morning smoothies you can whip up in a flash and that will keep you fully fueled and ready to face the day.

    THE BASE

    Ingredient No. 1 is totally a matter of preference, but you should pick something healthy.

    Two good options: Nut-based or yogurt-based.

    For nut-based, cashews, peeled hazelnuts or peeled almonds are all good choices because they give the smoothie a rich, creamy texture.

    For yogurt-based, unsweetened Greek yogurt or low-fat yogurt are good options. (You’ll sweeten the smoothie later with your fruit choice.)

    THE FLAVOR

    Once you’ve chosen your base, the next step is to select a combination of fruits and vegetables.

    The possibilities here are endless.

    Below is a list of our 5 favorites. (Note: The combinations below all start with your choice of yogurt or nuts and ½ frozen banana.)

    How to make them: Add your choice of either Greek yogurt of nuts to blender, ½ half frozen banana and water, then add one fruit and one vegetable to make each smoothie. Blend until smooth. (All smoothies below have approximately 130-150 calories).
