I am trying my hardest to start adding in more fruits and vegetables in my daily diet, but it is not easy thing to do. The best solution I have found is to start making smoothies from breakfast. That sounds easy, right? Well, once you wash, cut, blend, all the fruit it can eat up a lot of your morning. My smart idea, premake them, kind of.

What I did was cut out all the time it takes to deal with all the fresh fruit. I know, you can use the frozen bag fruit and that works just as fast but I am all about fresh is always best. I blended about 3 servings sizes of smoothie, just the fruit, and stored them in mansion jars in the fridge. Now, when I wake up all I have to do is add a little bit of Greek yogurt along with a cup of ice = breakfast is served.
