Smoothies make great breakfasts and snacks. They are quick and easy to make, perfect to take on the run. You can make a batch of smoothies ahead of time, and just pour out a glass for a quick breakfast or delicious snack. I used half spinach and half kale, a long with a pear and mango. I love the tropical flavor of the mango and the pear adds a delicious sweetness. The yogurt helps to create a smooth texture. Smoothies store well in the refrigerator, make some extra for a quick and easy snack the next day.
