10 Healthy Breakfast Smoothies for Successful Weight Loss

Healthy Breakfast Smoothies for weight loss. Use these 10 breakfast smoothie recipes, weight loss smoothies and breakfast shakes for fast mornings or while on smoothie diets.

Breakfast smoothies are my favorite “go-to” on busy mornings. Also called breakfast shakes, weight loss smoothies, green smoothies, or detox smoothies, there’s no better way to start the day then with a satisfying, yummy serving of blended fruits and vegetables.

Breakfast smoothies have a ton of nutrition as well as protein and lots of fiber. The following breakfast smoothie recipes will prove healthy and delicious.

Personally, I love these smoothie recipes and make them often. After eating a healthy breakfast smoothie in the morning, I don’t feel heavy or bloated compared to a “traditional” breakfast with eggs, meats, and carbs.

I go into the day with a positive mental boost knowing I’ve started my day right, and as a bonus, my weight loss goals are often easier to achieve after a breakfast shake or smoothie.

How to Make Healthy Breakfast Smoothies

Detox Smoothie RecipesIt’s pretty easy to make a healthy smoothie recipe.

Directions:

  • Step 1 – add all ingredients to blender
  • Step 2 – blend until smooth
  • Step 3 – enjoy

Add the breakfast smoothie recipe ingredients one at a time to ensure a smooth blending process. Start with the greens, like spinach or kale, then add the fruits and other ingredients later.

If you want to make the breakfast smoothie cold, you have two options:

1. Freeze the fruit, or buy frozen fruit.
2. Add 1/2 a cup of ice.

I recommend you use fresh ingredients in your breakfast smoothies, but you can also use frozen fruits and vegetables if fresh isn’t available. Just be sure to get organic both in frozen and fresh produce, if you’re cleansing your body you don’t want to be adding in pesticides while you do it!

Also, do not add extra sugar or use fruit juice, you want to keep these breakfast smoothies as healthy and nutritious as possible.

For best results, don’t add the breakfast smoothie ingredients all at once or you may have a hard time blending them properly.

Special Tip: Breakfast smoothies are a powerful weight loss tool that you can and should use every day.
