Is it healthy to have a smoothie for breakfast?

We all wonder, can it really be considered healthy to start my day with such a delicious drink? The answer is yes! Smoothies can be a very healthy way to begin your day, it all depends on the selection of ingredients your use and the portion size of your smoothie.

Smoothies can be used as a way to get your day going with supplement powders such as a protein or collagen powder simply by blending them in. You can add extra wellness supplements such as electrolyte drops or use coconut water which has natural electrolytes, spirulina powder for added greens and vitamins, flaxseed meal for additional fiber and so much more.

Smoothies can be whatever you make them and they are quick to bring together. Our family loves starting the day with fresh smoothies in a bowl topped with homemade granola, flaxseed and chia seed. It’s a sustaining breakfast that everyone loves.

Our favorite blender is this Ninja Ultima Blender Plus (BL830)Ir?T=Homefoodjunk 20&Amp;L=As2&Amp;O=1&Amp;A=B00Esq5Dd6, it receives outstanding reviews and the Ninja brand is loved in the wellness community.

What are the healthiest things to put in a smoothie?

Okay, we all want a little guidance when it comes to recipes like this. Smoothies can be made with a nearly endless array of ingredients, but which ones are the healthiest? We are listing out some of our favorites to get you started.

  • Acai berries or blueberries, both are high in antioxidants
  • Greens like kale or spinach for lots of vitamin A, C, K, iron, folate and fiber
  • Flaxseed meal or oats for added fiber and complex carbs
  • Chia seeds for a boost of omega 3s
  • Avocado for a thickener that delivers healthy fats
  • Plain Greek yogurt for a natural protein boost
  • Spirulina, a natural organism that delivers protein, magnesium, vitamins B1, B2, B3 and more
  • Goji berries, they are high in antioxidants and vitamins A and C
  • Hemp seeds are another great source of protein and omega 3s as well as omega 6s
  • Maca powder which is known for energy and endurance support as well as hormone balance

What can I eat for breakfast with a smoothie?

Smoothies on their own are incredibly filling and sustaining, it is part of their appeal and convenience. However, if you are having a small smoothie as a way to get your supplements and vitamins in and you are looking for options that you can pair with smoothies to round out your breakfast, we have a few ideas.

  • Whole wheat, high fiber cereal
  • Eggs and toast
  • Crustless quiche
  • A bowl of oatmeal
  • Bran muffins
  • Our sugar free Greek yogurt pancakes
  • Potatoes with bacon and eggs
  • An assortment of nuts

Do you cook the carrots first?

Hi Shannon, No we don't cook the carrots for smoothies. Everything goes in raw. Cut the carrots into pieces so your blender can handle them. Enjoy and Have a great day!
