    Breakfast is a great time to start working toward the goal of at least five fruits and vegetables per day. And what better way than a breakfast smoothie?

    Smoothies are a quick and nutritious morning meal that can easily provide two to three servings of fruit. A half cup of fresh or frozen fruit counts as one serving. Blend a combination of your favorite fruits with milk, yogurt or juice.

    Fruits contain powerful antioxidants, natural components that help protect cells from damage. The National Cancer Institute describes antioxidants as "little vacuum cleaners, eliminating free radicals as they circulate throughout the body, preventing them from doing damage."

    Fruits with the deepest, brightest colors have higher concentrations of these helpful antioxidants. Berries are an excellent choice and taste delicious in a smoothie. If fresh berries are not in season, frozen are just as nutritious and tasty.
