Smoothies make a very healthy and delicious filling breakfast. It is a grab-and-go breakfast on the go usually. But at times, I prefer a smoothie bowl. Especially I love presenting the smoothie bowls. The advantage of having smoothies for breakfast is
★ It saves time and is easy to prepare.Rich in Vitamins and Minerals.

Smoothie is a drink from pureed raw fruits or vegetables. It also has any liquid like Milk, Fruit Juice, or Yogurt. Green Smoothies are very popular these days. It usually has 40 to 60 percent of green leafy vegetables.
Baby Spinach - Use fresh baby spinach. Clean and remove the wilted leaf and use only the fresh ones.
Apple - Green apple or red apple use anyone as you prefer.
Banana - Frozen Banana gives a creamier smoothie. So freeze and use of possible.
Dates - We are not adding any sweeteners to the smoothies. The sweetness comes only from the fruits and dates.
Milk - Use any nut Milk or Plant based Milk for a Vegan Smoothie. Or Dairy Milk for a nonvegan version of the smoothie. My choice is Almond Milk.
