This sunrise-colored smoothie, fortified with a small dose of caffeine, may convince you to give up coffee as your morning beverage. Ingredient tip: Green tea and goji berries offer potent antioxidants to start your day right, and yogurt’s protein makes this an on-the-go superfoods breakfast. Prep tips: To avoid scorching the tea, be sure to use water that’s just off the boil. To freeze bananas, peel and slice, place in a plastic bag, and place in freezer overnight. Freezing several at a time makes spontaneous smoothies a cinch.

2 green tea bags (I like Morlife’s Green Tea Antiox)

1/2 cup nearly boiling water

1-2 ice cubes

1 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 sliced frozen banana

2 tablespoons goji berries, plus extra for garnish (I like Morlife’s)

2 teaspoons agave nectar

1. Place tea bags in a cup; pour 1/2 cup boiling water over tea bags and steep for 2–3 minutes. Remove tea bags and squeeze out liquid. Add 1–2 ice cubes to cool.

2. Pour cooled tea into a blender. Add yogurt, banana, goji berries, and agave. Purée until smooth. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with whole goji berries. Serve immediately.
