Healthy breakfast smoothies that will change your life!

I love a good scrumptious morning smoothie!

I’m sure most of us prefer a strong cup of coffee over anything else at the start of every day to help fight those blues away! I used to be a dedicated coffee drinker, up until sometime back. 

Now, coffee is definitely a highly effective ‘wake-me-up-and-help-me-get-through-the-day’ beverage because it gives you that ‘kick’, however, it leaves your body dehydrated and can get super addictive if not consumed in moderation.

Since I am a person who continuously grapples with anxiety, this is not good news! So, I basically went cold turkey on coffee and switched to an amazingly nutritious alternative – healthy breakfast smoothies!

Super simple to put together and quite the life-saver (literally), these breakfast smoothies are loaded with antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. One glass will give you an energy boost to kickstart the day and also help retain it throughout the day.

Here are my favourite ones.

‘The Feel-Good Smoothie’

This one literally works like a spell and alters how you’re feeling drastically, leaving you with an insane amount of energy.

Ingredients

  • 1 banana (peeled and chopped)
  • 1.5 tbsp of Matcha Powder
  • 1 cup of water or milk
  • 1 full cup of either raspberries or strawberries

Recipe

  • Throw all the ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  • Blend till it turns smooth.
  • Pour it in a glass or bottle and get set to destroy that dreadful Monday.

‘The Monday-Motivation Smoothie’

Quite literally, I threw in whatever I had in the fridge on a dull Monday morning and the resulting smoothie was so delish I had to pat myself on the back.

Ingredients

  • 2 apples (washed, peeled, and chopped)
  • 1 banana (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • Mint leaves

Recipe

  • Throw in all the ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Garnish with a few fresh mint leaves.

‘The Nature-Inspired Green Smoothie’

Another one of my favourites, this one includes a lot of greens and is an excellent energy booster.

Ingredients

  • Spinach and kale leaves
  • Almond milk and water
  • Bananas or avocado (for the creaminess)
  • Other fruits like apples, seedless grapes, or pineapple
  • Honey (optional)
  • Flax seeds or chia seeds

Recipe

  • Throw in the greens first and add the liquids thereafter.
  • Blend for 3 seconds till slightly smooth.
  • Add in the apple, grapes, or pineapple.
  • Add honey.
  • Add the chia or flax seeds.
  • Blend till it turns smooth and creamy!

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a smoothie, and that’s pretty much the same thing!
