Fruit for breakfast provides vitamins and nutrients that help our bodies in many ways throughout the day. So, if every breakfast should have fruit in some capacity, why not just enjoy breakfast smoothies instead?
There are many different options for breakfast that we can choose from but every breakfast should have fruit in some form. Breakfast smoothies are a wonderful way to get all the benefits from fruits and even veggies without doing too much work.
What are breakfast smoothies? We’ve all heard about green smoothies or detox smoothies, even breakfast shakes. All the above can be considered a breakfast smoothie.
Breakfast serves many different purposes but most importantly we want it to provide us with the energy we need to get through the first part of the day. While a plate of pancakes, drenched in syrup sounds amazing, it isn’t exactly the breakfast of champions. (Unless … they are our protein pancakes, found right here!)
Fruit is the breakfast of champions. For example, did you know that berries like blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries provide 8 grams of fiber per cup as well as antioxidants that protect your heart?
It’s impressive to see that something as small as a cup of berries can provide so many health benefits. Now use the knowledge of the power of fruit to make the best breakfast smoothies.

Breakfast Smoothies for Energy
Breakfast smoothies are a fantastic way to get a boost of nutrition in the morning. However, that nutrition can be focused on our energy levels. We can utilize vitamin C, B, and potassium for a boost of energy when we need it.
Fruits have plenty of energy giving nutrients and that is why smoothies are the perfect choice. You will also get other nutrients that are beneficial as well. It is a win/win situation for you.

Meal Replacing Breakfast
There are many ways to use energy boosting breakfast smoothies. However, many people use them as meal replacement options for breakfast. People don’t often have a breakfast smoothie alongside an English breakfast.
Meal replacement is when you use a smoothie or a shake to give you the nutrients you need without anything extra like fat or added sugars. This idea is great if the goal is to lose weight. However, not every meal should be replaced. Be sure to use this method responsibly.
