5 Breakfast Smoothies You Have To Try

The days of the bacon and egg breakfast are long gone. People nowadays want a healthy and nutritious breakfast that will start them off on the right foot. You have no doubt tried a few smoothies in your time, but here are some that might be new to your morning menu. All are wonderfully tasty and contain just the right ingredients to benefit both body and mind. Each recipe is also fast and simple because you just prepare them in the usual way: add the ingredients, blend until smooth, and serve!


  • Peaches & Cream and Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Here’s an excellent choice for those on a diet and includes the healthy breakfast mainstay, oatmeal.

  • 5 cup of fresh or frozen peach slices
  • .5 cup of oatmeal
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 cup plain or Greek yogurt
  • .5 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 5 – 6 ice cubes

You can further increase the creaminess and food value by also including half a frozen banana or an avocado.

  1. Peanut Butter & Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches are delicious, but really are not very good for you. Fortunately, you can substitute this smoothie, which offers all the taste but with fewer calories.

  1. Peanut Butter & Jelly Breakfast Smoothie

Still craving peanut butter? Well, here is a combo more associated with noon hour than breakfast, but still delicious no matter what it says on the clock. Indulge in one of your best childhood lunch memories in a form that is better for you.

  • 1 cup of mixed frozen berries (you can also choose your favourite berry instead)
  • 1 – 1.5 tablespoons of peanut butter (again, stay away from crunchy)

  • 1 cup of skim, almond, or soy milk
  • 5 – 6 ice cubes
  1. Chocolate, Banana, and Almond Butter Breakfast Smoothie

Chocolate for breakfast, you say? We’re in! As a child, we’re sure you would have loved an excuse to have chocolate before school. Well, now you can have it before work! Once again, it’s better for you than scarfing down a Mars bar on the drive to the office.

  • 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup (choose a sugar free or low-calorie version, if possible)
  • 1 cup of skim, almond, or soy milk
