Sometimes you simply don’t have time to cook breakfast. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a nutritious start to your day. Consider these breakfast drink ideas and tips if you need something nutritious for your picky eater or someone who isn’t really eat breakfast. When you need something  extra quick, breakfast drinks are a great option, especially if you prepare and freeze them for later use.

Smoothies are rapidly becoming my best friend, especially since I've found that coffee has been breaking me out. :(

Is there a benefit to preparing a smoothie over drinking an instant breakfast shake you can purchase at the store? The biggest benefit to making a smoothie from fresh or frozen ingredients is that you know what is in your smoothie. Some of the store-bought don’t have all-natural ingredients. They may even have synthetic ingredients or nutrients.

Is it possible to gather items so smoothies are easy to make? If you have ever made a fruit smoothie, you know you need fruit, ice and some type of liquid. Of course, you can use other ingredients, too.

* Be sure to start with a clean blender.
* Cut up your fruit the night before.
* Freeze some fruit to avoid having to use ice cubes.
* Include green, leafy or other vegetables for added nutrients.
* Measure out the liquid you will use and place it in a specific container in the refrigerator.

The more you can prepare the night before, the quicker it will be to make your smoothie when you need it. And if time is at a premium, having those few extra moments can be important.

The biggest question I've seen people ask about smoothies is this:

Can you make smoothies with other liquids besides cow’s milk?

The liquid you use to make a smoothie is entirely up to you. Some people like to use cow’s milk, some rice milk, others coconut milk. You can also use almond milk, kefir whey, fruit juice or vegetable juice.

I personally love Almond Milk. :)

How about trying this protein-packed milk shake using 1 1/4 cup milk, 1 large ripe banana, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 teaspoon honey, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla and 3 ice cubes. Put all ingredients in the blender except for the ice cubes. Cover and then blend for one minute on medium. Add the ice cubes, cover and then blend for another minute on high.

These breakfast ideas can enable you to prepare nutritious alternatives for your family. These breakfast beverages are nutritious and taste great. Of course, if your family enjoys these choices they may not want cereal or a cooked breakfast again.
