    Today, we're talking about breakfast smoothies. But these aren't your average early-morning drinks. Each of the smoothies featured here incorporates vegetables and protein — not just fruit.

    Lately, it's been a goal of mine to start every weekday with some vegetables. But salads just aren't appealing at 7:30 a.m., and that's a big reason I turned to the veggie-based smoothie.

    Here are five of my current favorite breakfast smoothies. With a little bit of prep on the weekend, you can have these ready to go in under five minutes, every morning of the week.
