Breakfast Smoothies are a great way to start the day but don’t stop there. These healthy smoothies make for a quick snack any time of day or even can be served as a vitamin-packed treat for little ones! The best thing about smoothies is you can make them with almost anything and they’re fast!

Tips for Great Breakfast Smoothies

The collection of breakfast smoothie recipes combines fruits, veggies and all of the colors of the rainbow!

  • All you need is fresh or frozen fruit or ice cubes, liquid and a blender.
  • If you have fruit that is about to go bad, chop and freeze for smoothies.
  • Keeping a banana or two in the freezer ensures they’re extra thick and frothy.

Tools You’ll Need

You don’t need much to make smoothies. A great blender is really the only requirement.

  • If you make lots of breakfast smoothies, invest in a great blender. We love both Blendtec and Vitamix.
  • Ninja Foodi has the best value and price with 5 star reviews across the board.
  • I’ve made countless great smoothies in a Magic Bullet as well. (Tip, as it’s blending, gently shake the bullet to help it mix better).

5 Favorite Breakfast Smoothies to Start Your Day
