15 Fast & Fruity Breakfast Smoothies
Smoothies are the answer when you need a healthy breakfast and you need it fast. They come together in a matter of minutes and make sure you start your day with a healthy helping of fruits and veggies. Throw in some protein and you’ve got a morning meal that will keep you satisfied until lunchtime.
We especially love smoothies this time of year, when berries are showing up at the farmers market and warmer temperatures mean a cool, refreshing drink is just the thing you want. From a raspberry and almond butter duo to a sunny lemon smoothie, these 15 smoothies deliver a fresh and fruity breakfast.
Berry and Melon Smoothies
This is one way to get your fill of the fresh berries taking over the markets right now and on through summer. These smoothies are as pretty as they are delicious — not to mention the fact that they’re easy to blend together on any morning of the week. Can’t get your hands on seasonal berries, or prefer a more budget-friendly solution? Head to the freezer aisle for a bag of the frozen stuff.
You’ve all heard about starting your day with lemon water, right? Well, we think these smoothies, made with lemons, oranges, and clementines, are even better. They’ll brighten your morning while delivering a nourishing breakfast.
So you’re going to work instead of lazing on a white sand beach, staring at turquoise blue water — that doesn’t mean you can’t at least get a taste of the tropics. These smoothies lean on sweet tropical fruits, like pineapple, coconut, mango, and banana, plus spices and fresh herbs, to make that morning meeting more bearable.
