Breakfast Smoothies Three Ways

Smoothies are such a wonderful thing to wake up to, and today I’m sharing three of my absolute favorite breakfast smoothies.

You can never go wrong with a smoothie. It’s light and refreshing, and I think blending up a smoothie is such a strong way to start the morning.

I usually just throw ingredients together. I don’t really think you need a recipe at all for smoothies, actually, but instead I think it’s important to have flavor combinations. Once you know the flavor you’re going for, you can kind of adjust amounts as you go to create your ideal smoothie.

That being said, I did throw together some recipes… but really, they are just flavor ideas. You can add so many different things to each one that the possibilities are endless!

I think the new year is the perfect time to get back into a smoothie routine. It kind of makes me think that summer is near!! Or at least warmer weather…

I also love breakfast smoothies when you are working out in the morning, need something in your stomach, but don’t want to be too full. They fill you up without being heavy.

I really like to make sure I have some sort of protein in the smoothie as well. This makes it a little bit more substantial than fruit. If I’m not adding something like peanut butter, I’ll add a scoop of collagen peptides for a quick protein boost. They’re completely flavorless and completely optional, but I’ve been loving them.

And with that, I think we all need a good breakfast smoothie to start this Wednesday off right! And maybe a frittata, too!

Enjoy!
