Looking for something more filling in the morning? How about a chocolate strawberry shake... made healthy? This smoothie is rich and full of flavor (with a nice combination of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla), and tastes like a cheat meal but without any of the guilt.

Healthy smoothies are a great way to start the morning and a good way for me to get an extra serving of vegetables. I had gotten into a routine of making myself eggs in the morning and then a smoothie/shake to go as I made my commute.
But my old Magic Bullet blender broke, and I was faced with a dilemma: do I just never make smoothies again or do I look for a new blender?
After a few days of looking at the fruits and vegetables sitting alone in my fridge, I landed on the Magic Bullet with fewer blades and cups than the traditional MB set for $40 and it gave me the kick I needed to start my morning routine again.
In this smoothie series, I want to share with you some of my favorite recipes that are easy to make and will give you energy for the whole morning!
