They say one shouldn’t attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast and they are quite right. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It kick starts your metabolism and gives the energy your body needs in the morning. It goes without saying that it’s equally important to make healthy food choices for breakfast.
Treat your taste buds and pick a smoothie, not only because they are tremendously healthy but also because they are easy to make and can be consumed on the go. So here are 3 easy-to-make healthy breakfast smoothies that will ensure you have a good day ahead.
Strawberry and yogurt smoothie
We love strawberries not just because they are delish but also because they are low calorie, vitamin C rich, high in fibre, nutrient powerhouse. This smoothie can be made with 3 ingredients - fresh strawberries, plain or Greek yogurt and half cup orange juice. Easy and delicious.
Green vegetables are a lifeline to healthy living. This smoothie is packed with nutrients, adds less than 200 calories and can boost your energy instantly. Make this smoothie with spinach, cucumber, avocado, mint, cilantro, yogurt and orange juice, to add a little flavour.
Bananas and oats breakfast smoothie
This is a protein rich smoothie to keep you full for hours. Banana helps maintain your sugar levels while oats is healthy fiber. Mix these two with milk, yogurt and honey to make a delicious smoothie, throw in some almonds or walnuts for a good measure.
Best part about these recipes is that you will probably find its ingredients sitting in your refrigerator so make that extra effort and switch to healthy breakfast smoothies.
