Green Breakfast Smoothie

This Green Breakfast Smoothie is full of delicious, good for you ingredients and a perfect way to get your day started off on the right foot.

Every morning I get up early, go on a hike with our dog Cosmo and then come home to make a smoothie. It's my morning ritual and I love it. It helps me get my day started with tons of energy ready to take on the tasks ahead of me. This Green Breakfast Smoothie has been my go-to smoothie of choice lately. It only has a few ingredients, takes hardly any time to make and is so yummy. 

I know green food is normally on a lot of people's favorite foods list, but trust me on this one. This smoothie doesn't taste green in the slightest. The sweetness from the banana and creaminess from the avocado makes the taste of the spinach pretty much disappear. You could even add a date to this smoothie to add some more natural sweetness. 

Smoothies are a great way to get a full serving of fruits and veggies in every day. We've been having smoothies for breakfast every day for a few years now and it really has changed everything. They're so customizable to what you may need for your body at the time. 

There are tons of smoothie recipes on weelicious but some of my favorites at the moment are Blueberry Chia SmoothieMango Spiced SmoothieBerry Green Smoothie and Crazy Healthy Smoothie. And if you're looking for EVEN MORE smoothie recipes you can get my book Smoothie Project that breaks everything down for you and has over 100 recipes for delicious smoothies.

If you haven't tried a Green Smoothie for breakfast, I highly encourage it! It's the best way to get your day started and will boost your energy! Let me know if you make it my tagging my on social media!
