The fiber-rich vegetable helps keep you full without changing the taste of your favorite smoothie combinations. You can use raw broccoli or steam it quickly first for a smoother consistency. This 330-calorie peanut butter, broccoli, and strawberry smoothie will keep you full throughout the morning.

Chia Seeds

If you're looking to start the day right, add a tablespoon of chia seeds to your a.m. smoothie. The seeds are high in fiber and a great source of anti-inflammatory omega-3s, so you'll feel full and ready to take on your morning. If you're not a fan of the seeds' texture, this berry chia seed smoothie recipe masks the taste and feel of those little guys.

Green Tea

For a little energy boost, substitue strong chilled green tea to any smoothie for water. You'll feel a subtle caffeinated pick-me-up before you get to work or hit the gym. We like the refreshing taste of this green tea, cinnamon, and honey smoothie.

For a smoothie that's got staying power, add some flaxseeds to the mix. High in omega-3s and fiber, flax helps promote bone health, lowers cholesterol, and keeps your digestive system healthy. The good fats in flaxseeds also help relieve inflammation. Add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed to your next smoothie, or make this overnight flaxseed, apple, and cinnamon smoothie ahead of time so you can grab and go in the morning.
