Although I love smoothies for breakfast, some mornings, I don’t want anything too sweet. Hence, my favorite citrus smoothie! It is made of a blend of fresh banana, orange, and lemon. This smoothie is more tangy than sweet and makes a great breakfast drink to start off your day. I add a little orange juice so it isn’t too sour, which creates a nice balance. You can chop and freeze your banana the night before, so in the morning you just have to add it to the smoothie and blend. What do you think – do you prefer sweet or tangy smoothies?
