Breakfast smoothie with only 4 ingredients, it’s the quickest breakfast you can make in a busy morning that’s packed with flavor and nutrition. 

I can’t believe that it’s December already! The moment we finished the last bite of what’s left from last Thursday, a new definition of Thanksgiving leftovers was generated in my dictionary – like it or not, the last month of the year is approaching!

This time of the year is sort of annoying because it reminds me that I am inevitably going to be one year older soon. Ironically, I also kind of love this time of the year because that’s usually the time to set some new achievable goals, to prepare for making new things happen!

However, to me, nothing actually happens without this one thing. I MUST have it every morning to keep myself functional for the day. Otherwise, I am definitively useless!

This can’t-live-with-out thing is my beloved breakfast – first meal of the day!

As both Han and I are morning people, which means we work most productively in the morning, breakfast needs to happen FAST! Like really FAST so that we can quickly dive in whatever we need to do and make things happen, of course.

We also demand our breakfast to be super healthy, full of nutrition, and powerful! Yes, powerful! Isn’t it too much to ask for one breakfast?
