You don't have to be up at the crack of dawn to make yourself a delicious, and healthy, smoothie for breakfast! If you find you don't have time, or inclination, the following tips may be what turns things around for you!

1. Skip the hard part

Let someone else do the chop work for you! Companies like Green Blender send you pre-portioned ingredients and a healthy recipe list for 10 smoothies each week! Earthbound Farmshas a Smoothie Kickstart product that can be added to yogurt or milk and you're good to go. Why make things harder than it needs to be?

2. Use a superfood shortcut

Try adding a green powder instead of going through the song and dance of keeping things like wheatgrass juice on hand. These pouches often contain a few servings of fruit and vegetables and are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that come from things like spirulina, wheatgrass juice and enoki mushrooms.

3. Add some sea salt

Yes, you read that correctly. Adding sea salt to your smoothie enhances its natural sweetness which may lead to you being less likely to add your own sweetener. Just don't use table salt as it is super processed and bleached.  

4. Make them more filling

Smoothies feel like a waste of time if you end up hungry 20 minutes later. Fats are essential if you want to feel satiated. Try adding 1/4 of an avocado or a tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil to your smoothie! If you mix in some rolled oats, you'll be grabbing some extra fiber and making it all feel more filling. “Just make sure to soak them the night before so they are softer [making for a more palatable texture],” offers Cat Smiley, author of The Planet Diet and owner of the Whistler Fitness Vacations.

5. Work your ice tray

Doing prep work ahead of time can save you a major headache in the morning. “Freeze your bananas – remove the skin first, chop them in half and stack them face down in an ice cube tray. That way, they don’t stick together and they’re easy to grab,” explains Smiley. If you want a more velvety smoothie, Smiley suggests making yogurt cubes. Adding yogurt cubes makes a creamier smoothie than you would get with just straight up ice. Another time saving option is to prep everything and fill your blender the night before. Place the pitcher in the fridge and all you have to do in the morning is blend it up! How do you make time for smoothies in the morning? For more healthy meal ideas, check out the BodyRock Meal Plan!
