Fresh fruit is a great food to start the day with, whether cut up in some way or liquefied. Smoothies are at once soothing and invigorating, luscious yet low in fat. They also offer a concentrated source of nourishment for children and teens (and indeed anyone) whose morning appetite is sluggish.
Smoothies are especially easy to make and clean up after if you use an immersion blender. Use these recipes as a starting point for creating combinations of your own.
