I love a good smoothie, especially for breakfast. It's perfect for kick starting my day with some fruits and greens. I'm notoriously not a morning person, so I make these up the night before and store them in mason jars in the fridge - they are ready to grab and go with me in the morning!

This week's Friday Five is dedicated to some of my favorite morning beverages. 

1. Chocolate Love Smoothie - Goop. Oh my, this smoothie is just absolutely divine. If you have a sweet tooth, I cannot recommend this one enough. It's super simple to make and is absolutely delicious. I like to use SPIRU-TEIN chocolate protein powder.
2. Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie, a Katy Perry favorite says her celeb trainer Harley Pasternack. If you loved pb&j's as a child (or still love them now, like me) this smoothie is what childhood dreams are made of.
3. The Flat Belly Smoothie - Popsugar. I love the combo of the pineapple and blueberries in this smoothie, which definitely help mask the taste of the kale in this drink - sneak & delish.
4. Green Monster Spinach Smoothie - Iowa Girl Eats. I love the texture of this smoothie. The use of the spinach makes it extra lush and velvety. Plus it tastes great too.
5. Cinnamon Apple Smoothie - Popsugar. This smoothie is as American as apple pie - mostly because it tastes like one.  This recipe calls for adding protein powder, but if you don't have any available you can easily leave it out. 

Bottoms up!
