Best Breakfast Smoothies

Mornings are busy, and if you’re anything like me you don’t like eating right when you get up. And you also don’t really like getting up. My typical morning consists of lying in bed through all my alarms and figuring out how many times I can press snooze and still have time to get dressed and out the door without being late. This is why my go-to breakfast is a smoothie. They are quick to make, easily transportable for wherever you may need to go, and they are full of nutrients. Another great thing about them is you can take pretty much whatever fruits (or veggies) you have in your fridge and freezer and whip something up that will taste good and keep you fueled for the day.

Some of my favorite smoothie combinations are tropical green, triple berry, and mango raspberry.

Tropical Green

  • 0.5 cup frozen mango
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • A banana
  • 1 cup spinach/kale
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)

Triple Berry

  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup frozen sliced strawberries
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup almond milk (you can also use water or orange juice)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

Mango Raspberry

  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • ½ cup spinach
  • A banana
  • 1 cup orange juice

These are some of my typical morning smoothies that help keep me going during long work days. They also work perfectly for a mid-afternoon snack or when trying to combat sweet cravings.

During the summer months when all the fresh berries are in season I often wait until they go on sale and then stock up on a bunch of them to freeze and use in my smoothies for the rest of the year. If you want to use fresh (not frozen) fruits in your smoothies then all you have to do is add in 1 cup of ice so that it doesn’t become too thin.

Probably my favorite thing about smoothies though is that you can customize them however you like. You can keep them thicker and make a smoothie bowl topped with granola, fresh fruit, and some coconut or keep them as a traditional drinkable smoothie. No matter how you make it it’s sure to be delicious.
