Drinks are quick and easy to make, and delicious to have in the morning.

2 oranges

2 lemons

2 limes

mineral water (cold)

Strawberry Yogurt Drink

From all the drink-based quick low fat breakfast recipes, I think those with yogurt are the best. Yogurt based drinks tend to fill you up for longer periods. I feel this is a bit more of a substantial quick drink than the other ones I've listed above.

But this is not only a quick low fat breakfast recipe. You can have it any time you want. In fact, I like having it at night when I'm feeling hungry
