You don’t need a high-powered blender for these delicious, easy morning smoothies. They can be whipped up in minutes, and if you don’t have time in the morning, you can always make them the night before and have them waiting for you in the fridge. A filling breakfast low in calories and high in protein will keep you focused throughout the day. Grab your mason jars and get ready for some mouthwatering recipes.
Maple Coffee Smoothie
The ultimate wakeup call is here. Cold-brewed coffee blended with creamy milk, oats, and banana gives you the pick-me-up you need on an early morning. Besides, a few tablespoons of pure maple syrup take it out of this world! It’s a cozy comfort recipe with extra protein and zero sugar needed. Save yourself the line at Starbucks and try this on for size. You’ll be wide awake all class period and your tummy will thank you.
Apple Avocado Smoothie
Be prepared for a real glow up! Avocado, banana, spinach, apple, and ginger give this smoothie a wallop of fiber and cleansing properties. You’ll not only feel full, but radiant. This smoothie beautifies from the inside out. It’s perfect for a detox challenge or juice cleanse week. Vibrant, green, rich, and creamy, the ginger adds a pinch of flavor to wake you up in the morning. Not to mention the benefits it has for your tummy!
Blueberry Coconut Water Smoothie
Healthy, antioxidant-rich, and scrumptious, this recipe uses frozen blueberries, coconut water, and Greek yogurt to create a sweet, creamy breakfast. For extra coconut flavor, add coconut extract. Garnishing with hemp hearts, chia seeds, or oats will give it a nice crunch on top of the protein perk. You won’t need any extra sweetener for this – the blueberries juicy and sweet enough by themselves – and the coconut water packs a punch of healthy fat to keep you energized.
This smoothie is a comforting treat on breezy mornings. Pumpkin spice, canned pumpkin, bananas, yogurt, and apple (keep the skin on for extra protein!) is all you need. If it’s too thick, add a splash of milk. Almond or soy is a preferred favorite, plus, it has a sweeter flavor than dairy milk. To make it extra filling, you can add a couple of tablespoons of old-fashioned oats to help you power through the day.
Gingerbread Cookie Smoothie
Getting your greens in can be hard. Smoothies like this make it easy! Ground ginger, chia seeds, spinach, flaxseed, and almond butter pack this recipe with nutrients. By the time you’re done drinking it, you’ll feel like a goddess divine who just ate a delectable cookie. To make it even creamier, add half an avocado and a banana. A dash of allspice will give it that super warm, nostalgic feeling. Just writing this makes me want to break out my molasses and whip up a fresh batch of chewy gingerbread!
Mango Banana Smoothie
Vitamin and protein-packed, this fresh treat is perfect for summer. It’s got a mild and tangy palate with a tropical flavor that is to die for. And it only has three ingredients! Mangoes, bananas, and filling Greek yogurt. It’s great for healthy eyes, the immune system, and fiber deficiency. As an interesting perk, the banana and mango blends together so well it won’t separate if left in the fridge for a few days.
The Orange Smoothie
Excellent for springtime allergies and colds, this orange carrot smoothie is a zippy, tangy delight. It is vitamin C empowered and rich with beta-carotene, vitamin A, and nutrients to keep your immune system healthy and happy. The basic formula is oranges, carrots, mangos, and ginger for spice, but you can warm things up with ground cinnamon. Carrots and oranges are sweet enough by themselves so you won’t need any additional sugars here. Plus, it’s so pretty!
Sunflower Cocoa Smoothie
Rich, earthy, and sweet, this smoothie is a daring twist on the banana-berry combo. Blend dark chocolate chips, cocoa powder, sunflower seed butter, and one beet for an ultra-nutritious breakfast. A dash of honey and almond milk will bring the sweetness up if the beet is overpowering. This drink is loaded with healthy fat, antioxidants, and nutrients to combat free radicals (to prevent cancer). If you want to add another power-up, swap cocoa powder for chocolate protein powder.
Almond Berry Cheesecake Smoothie
Don’t be deceived – this smoothie is healthy but does not skimp on decadence. Cottage cheese, berries, almonds, and sweet coconut milk make this breakfast a dessert in a cup. No added sugars or protein powders needed! If you’re looking for a vegan-friendly option, swap cottage cheese for cashew cream. It will be just as yummy with fewer calories. Throw in some cinnamon and a crunchy almond topping for extra jazz!
This anti-inflammatory bomb will quell even the grumpiest tummies. With fresh kiwi, turmeric, ginger, and pineapple, you’ve got anti-inflammatory A-Team on your side. Don’t worry about medicinal flavor, though. This smoothie is loaded with pops of citrus, sweet pineapple, and zingy ginger. It is a superfood with an exotic flavor profile. For the marbled look pictured below, blend the green ingredients separately from the yellow ones and then give them a good swirl when pouring. It will look so glitzy you’ll feel like you’re drinking a cocktail.
You might be shocked to find out this smoothie is dairy-free, has no refined sugars, AND is vegan! Start with two layers – “jelly” and “peanut butter”. For the jelly layer, blend frozen raspberries, orange juice, and water. For the peanut butter, you’ll want to add frozen bananas, chia seeds, dates, and your choice of plant-based milk (the preferred choice is almond milk). Blend them separately and then swirl it in a glass for a classic marbled look. Healthy, delicious nostalgia.
Vanilla Mint Smoothie
Here’s a light, fresh take on your morning breakfast routine. Start with a base of banana, coconut milk, and vanilla bean. Blend it separately from the green mint layer: spinach, mint leaves, more banana, and more coconut milk. Pour them one at a time into a mason jar for a beautiful look that will make you want to devour it immediately. Don’t have time for vanilla beans? Use vanilla extract. This heavenly smoothie will make you feel light as a feather.
