If you’re like many of us, this new year finds you grateful for a fresh start. This month we’ve got power smoothies to help you kick-start a healthy new year without getting bored with your breakfast. These recipes make it easy to banish post-holiday guilt without a whole lot of effort.

Simply throw some ingredients into a blender, press a button, pour it into a glass, and you’re ready to take on the day. Short on time? Most smoothies take less than five minutes to throw together, so there’s no excuse for skipping breakfast.

If one of your resolutions is to eat healthier, establishing a morning smoothie habit is an incredibly easy place to begin. Packed with protein, healthy fats, fiber and greens — the four key foundational elements to keep your hunger hormones balanced throughout the day — these smoothies are designed to make you feel satisfied for hours, helping you make healthier choices as you move through the rest of the day.
