If you are like me, too lazy to think about making breakfast in the morning, not hungry at all when you wake up and often on the go, but you also know all the benefits of having breakfast in the morning, this post is for you. If you’re looking for some quick breakfast ideas, keep reading.
Yes, my friend, I struggled with breakfast all my life. But as everyone knows, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so I really needed to find a solution – and I did! And of course, I’m going to share it.
You will find lots of yummy healthy breakfast recipes so
But let’s start from the beginning.
Why you should eat breakfast:
The benefits of having breakfast are numerous. It gives your body energy to jump-start your day, restores glucose levels to helps your cognitive function, and maintains your body until lunch. It has long-term health benefits, too. Eating breakfast can reduce risk of obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.
To be honest, I could go on forever listing the benefits of eating breakfast.
But what I really want you to understand is that yes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it has to be healthy.
This is one of the reasons why I have listed these breakfast smoothie recipes.
The other reason is because I know how hard it can be make a healthy breakfast in the morning when you are in a rush or when you’re like me and your stomach doesn’t wake up until 11am.
Yea, after years of struggling, I found the solution: fruit and vegetable smoothies.
Benefits of having smoothies for breakfast:
Drinking a smoothie in the morning is one of the best breakfasts that you can have. You can consume lots of veggies without even noticing. Plus, you can put all the supplements that you need, but don’t really like, in the smoothie.
If you don’t enjoy having a big meal in the morning, they’re the perfect solution. But if you’re one of those people who love eating as soon as they wake up, you can still have a smoothie bowl. You can make any of the smoothie recipes listed in this post in a smoothie bowl by simply adding your favourite fruit or nuts.

They are the quickest breakfast that you can think of. Yes, they’re one of the best quick breakfast ideas. You can chop all your ingredients, prepare some smoothie bag and throw them in the freezer ahead of time. So, in the morning the only thing you need to do is blend.
Ok, I need to be honest, this part at the beginning wasn’t so easy. Sure, I was making the smoothie in less than two minutes but then it was really annoying to clean the blender.
And then my mother in law gifted me with one of the best tools ever!
My secret weapon to make the smoothie and clean everything in less than two minutes
Hey girls, say hello to NutriBullet! One of the best presents ever. Now my breakfast is literally always on the go! To be precise, I’ve had breakfast every morning since getting the NutriBullet.
Before the NutriBullet, I had already started experimenting with some healthy smoothie recipes but cleaning the blender was so annoying (it doesn’t fit in the dishwasher and it’s hard to handwash) that most of the times I skipped my breakfast all together.
And you know skipping breakfast is really bad so I can say that NutriBullet changed my life.
I really recommend you to buy one. You can find some on eBay for a discounted price.

Or if you feel more confident with Amazon you can find Nutribullet on Amazon.

Anyway, since I love it so much, I’m planning to write a complete review on NutriBullet soon so stay tuned.
But now let’s go back to our delicious smoothie recipes.
What I put in every single smoothie
The recipes are all different and they can help with different things. But there are some ingredients that are never missing from my smoothies:
Chia seeds: They are an excellent source of Omega 3, they are rich in antioxidants and they’re a great resource of fiber. You can read 11 proven health benefits of Chia Seeds to learn more about them.
I buy them on Amazon but you can easily find them at your grocery shop.
Spirulina: Among its numerous health benefits, Spirulina works great for boosting your energy levels. You can read more about the effects that Spirulina has on your energy here.
I buy it on iHerb (I really love their website)
Collagen: Collagen does wonders for skin, hair and nails. And I heard so much about “Vital Proteins, Marine Collagen” that I decided to try them, and wow, I’m shocked with the results.
I have not had time to write a review on them yet, but you can watch this video by Sabrina AnnMarie on YouTube to learn more.
