The 5-Minute Smoothie
Rooting through the fridge, rinsing berries and peeling and chopping mangoes is no way to start a Monday. Instead, prep the fruit ahead of time (chunks are fine, as are whole bananas; just wash and peel everything)—or simply buy bags of frozen, chopped fruit. Measure out portions into small zip-top bags. Then, in the morning, pour juice or milk into the blender; follow that with the solids (they'll blend better with liquid underneath them) and gradually raise the motor's speed until the drink is at the right consistency for you to sip through a straw. A double-wall insulated glass will keep it cold longer.
