    Breakfast smoothies: 7 easy recipes for healthy breakfast smoothies every day


    Smoothies are delicious, easy-to-make and a great way to contribute to your recommended 5-a-day fruit and vegetables. For those who wish to make healthy breakfast smoothies every day, this article provides a weekly schedule that focuses on just one ingredient each time. In addition to these seven breakfast smoothie recipes, we’ll also share some pro tips to take your breakfast smoothies to the next level.

    Are smoothies good for breakfast?


    Yes! A smoothie bowl for breakfast is quick and easy to make and can be a great source of vitamins and nutrients. A smoothie is also a great option for those who usually dislike eating vegetables. Packed with protein, fruits and vegetables, a smoothie for breakfast can be an optimum source of energy and the perfect start to your day.

    How to make a breakfast smoothie: Getting the balance right

     

    ANow that you know smoothies are good for breakfast, you’re probably wondering how to make a breakfast smoothie. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are our top tips for the perfect smoothie.

     

    1. Use the right combination of ingredients in your smoothie.
      It’s easy to think that the more ingredients you throw into your smoothie, the better it is for you. After all, the ingredients are all healthy, right? Well, this method can be a bit reckless in that it risks loading your smoothie up with calories, sugar, and fat. To avoid this, ensure that fruit pulp or pureed fruit or vegetables make up at least 50% of the smoothie. The best way to do this is to stick to a recipe with a pre-balanced mix of solid and liquid ingredients, avoiding isolated nutrients or added sugar.
    2. Be careful when sweetening your smoothie.  
      A healthy breakfast smoothie’s sweetness should come from fresh or frozen fruit, rather than sweetened yogurt or juice from concentrate. If you need an additional sweetness kick, try natural sugars like agave syrup, honey, or maple syrup. But try not to use these natural sweeteners too much, as they too contain sugar. If you’re looking for more sweetness from a fruit source, dates are a great way to sweeten your breakfast fruit smoothie.
    3. Be sure to add protein, fibre, and vitamin C to your smoothie.
      To make sure you’re making filling breakfast smoothies, add a source of protein. This could be low-fat milk, for example, or Greek yogurt or plant-based milk. Fibre is mainly found in fruits and vegetables, while citrus fruits can be good sources of vitamin C. Luckily, the following seven breakfast smoothies contain a healthy and balanced mix of vitamins and minerals.†

    If you follow the tips above, a healthy breakfast smoothie is a brilliant way to start your day off on a balanced diet. With a good, powerful, and easy-to-clean blender like the High-Speed Blender from the Philips Collection, you can make sure your smoothies turn out great every time, with little to no effort at all.
