Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Recipes

Breakfast Smoothie Recipes
for Great Breakfasts

We've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A nutritious breakfast is the key to how well you perform for the rest of the day. Unfortunately, many people find that breakfast is the most difficult meal to fit into their hectic schedules.

Breakfast smoothies just might be the solution for you! A typical smoothie can be prepared and consumed in just a few minutes, and you'd have a hard time coming up with any other meal that offers as much energy-providing nutrition.



Nutritional Benefits of
Breakfast Smoothies

Healthy breakfast smoothies are loaded with nutrients that come in a whole-food form. The fruits and vegetables blended together in healthy smoothie recipes provide vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber in a concentrated form that will do wonders for your health — and build up your body’s defenses against disease.

In addition, when fruits and vegetables are blended, the plant fibers are broken down just like when you chew them; the blender literally does most of the “chewing” for you. This makes smoothies easy to digest, and it also means that you'll absorb more of the nutrients.

Healthy smoothie recipes can also be a great source of fiber. Fiber works to improve your digestion and helps you start your day feeling more satisfied, and maintains that feeling longer.


Recommended Starters
for Your Breakfast Smoothie Recipes

Most smoothie recipes call for a liquid ingredient to allow the solid components to move around inside the blender and give your smoothie the right thickness. The beverage you choose will largely determine how healthy your smoothie turns out.

What are the best beverages to use to make your smoothie as healthy as possible? The most common choices are  water, cows milk, yogurt, soy milk, nut milks, or fruit juice. To discover the pros and cons of each one, see my page on how to make a smoothie the healthy way.


Making Your Smoothie Recipes
into Complete Meals

Many smoothie recipes are relatively low in protein, so they're not complete meals by themselves. The easy solution is to add a protein source to any healthy smoothie recipe.

The simplest way to do this is by adding a couple of raw organic eggs to your basic recipe. Raw eggs won't change the taste of your smoothie at all, and the argument that they're bad for you because of the cholesterol content is just not true. Eggs are one of the most beneficial foods you can eat, especially when consumed raw.

You can also increase the protein content of your healthy smoothie recipes by adding a protein powder.  Be sure to use a high quality product; most cheap protein powders are excessively heat-processed and aren't really good for you.

There are many other ways to transform your ordinary smoothie recipe into one with enhanced nutritional value. You can add superfood powders, healthy fats, herbs, spices and extra fiber. My complete guide to making healthy smoothies has lots of tips and tricks to make your smoothie better.
