I don’t know what the hell happened to fall, but winter is here. Although eggs and bacon is the perfect winter breakfast, it’s not always ideal for a busy morning or a light pre-workout nosh. This smoothie takes just a minute and packs tons of healthy, fast-digesting carbohydrates to fuel your morning Belly Bootcamp class or power walk, and healthy fats to satisfy you and fuel your brain. It also tastes like summer, with banana, pineapple and coconut.

So whizz it up and close your eyes, and pretend it’s not 10 degrees below zero out there.
