Too many of us skip breakfast. Maybe it’s because we are rushing out the door, don’t have an appetite that early in the morning or frankly, just aren’t a fan of breakfast foods. Whatever your reason, we have a resolution: breakfast smoothies.
We asked some of the busiest people we know, our chefs, what they like to eat/drink in the morning and they created some yummy but also satisfying smoothies that even they have time to make. So rise and shine because here are four smoothie recipes from our chefs for you to try tomorrow morning:
Mychael Bonner, Chef/Partner at Di Pescara, Petterino’s and Saranello’s, created a smoothie with an unexpected combination of fruits and veggies: celery, banana, blueberries, honey and soy milk. For this recipe, click here.
