Some people say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Do you agree?
There are 2 types of people though – type 1, gets up a few hours extra early so they can make breakfast and relax before going to work. Type number 2 is people who set an alarm as late as possible and literally have 10 minutes to leave the house.
Getting those extra minutes of sleep is good, but nothing beats peace and quiet before the storm, and of course a nice breakfast.
Of course, if you are typically in a rush in the morning, making a healthy breakfast smoothie is ideal. Smoothies are quick and easy to make, and also perfect to take on the go.
Do Breakfast Smoothies Help You Lose Weight?
The quick answer is yes. Smoothies are full of nutrients and good for you ingredients that aid weight loss.
Also, if done right, a smoothie can be quite filling. Furthermore, skipping breakfast will only lead you to eat more later, to compensate for the fact your body didn’t get anything all morning.
So, you are basically giving what your body wants – energy, after a whole night of fasting.
Is It Healthy To Only Have a Smoothie For Breakfast?
There is absolutely nothing wrong with having smoothies for breakfast; in fact, it’s recommended.
If you think of the traditional American breakfast, which consists of bacon, pancakes, or waffles, which do you think is better? The smoothie or the saturated fat processed bacon and sugary pancakes or waffles?
The smoothie is 10 times healthier and better for you.

Adding fruit to your morning yogurt is a popular way to start the day. So, why not have these favourite ingredients in your breakfast smoothie?
That’s right – tofu. We know that this smoothie is gonna divide the crowd, and that’s fine. But, if you are someone who likes to add protein to their smoothies, but hates protein powder, tofu is a great way to naturally add protein.
And no, you cannot taste the tofu in the smoothie at all!
Oat is a staple for breakfast. We like to add berries to our oatmeal, don’t we? So, here’s a blueberry oat smoothie recipe!
Oats keep us full, if you feel full, you are less likely to eat, which can result in weight loss. Furthermore, oats are great for your digestion.
We do like overnight oats as well, don’t we? So, here’s a smoothie recipe that is inspired by overnight oats.
Basically, you make overnight oats, and the next day you just blend it all up to a drinkable consistency. Simple, and only requires 3 ingredients!
Blueberries and yogurt – another match made in heaven.

The recipe is full of goodness, and since it’s a smoothie bowl, you can add all sorts of toppings.
The smoothie bowl is perfect for weight loss, as it will keep you full for hours. It’s packed full of superfoods.
Oranges…orange juice, does that ring any bells when it comes to breakfast drinks?
The problem we have with orange juice is the fact that it’s actually not that good for you; it’s often made with concentrates and loaded with sugar.
Making a smoothie with oranges is 10 times better. We always use the pulp of the orange. Definitely try this smoothie!
Bananas, hate them or love them, are a staple for many people for breakfast. They can be enjoyed on their own, diced up, topped on your yogurt, granola, you name it.
And of course, use them in your breakfast smoothie as well.
You cannot deny the power of strawberries and bananas.
They work INCREDIBLY well together. The smoothie bowl is thick and so delicious!
