5 Simple Breakfast Smoothie Recipes

5 simple breakfast smoothie recipes

by Alanna Ketler

There is no question about it, breakfast is the most important meal of the day; when you wake up chances are that you have not eaten for at least 8 hours if not way longer. Breakfast literally means, to break fast. You want to make sure you are getting a kick of nutrition and something that will provide you with the energy that you’ll need to get your day started.

The sad reality is that many people skip breakfast altogether because they don’t give themselves enough time in the morning to prepare something. Because of this, research shows that if you skip breakfast, then you’re more likely to reach for something bad around 10am.

I say, let’s avoid that altogether. Doing that will be that much easier now that you have these 5 simple breakfast smoothie recipes to jump start your day!

You may have noticed that none of these smoothies contain dairy of any kind, in fact they are entirely Vegan. This is purely optional, but I have found over the years that bananas, medjool dates, coconut and other non-dairy milks all do an excellent job at creating that creamy delicious texture that you might expect from yogurt alone. At least you know that the option is available to skip out on dairy altogether, which can do wonders for your health! There has been an ever increasing amount of information being released lately to show that dairy can actually be very harmful to your health. Check out this link for more information on the subject.

  1. I just need to say that I need recipes that severely limit sugar and carbs. Adding bananas or maple syrup just isn’t an option for me. I am severely over weight and I must lose or risk diabetes or worse. I was hoping for more recipes that exclude these two fat creators. Thanks for caring.:)

    • HI, why not try substituting the banana for avocado, this is higher in fat but you’ll eat less and feel fuller for longer.
