Starting off the day the right way – Breakfast Smoothie Recipes

*This is a collaborative post

At the start of the year I made a resolution that I would start to take better care of myself and get fit and healthy. I have been trying to eat better and my main issue has always been breakfast. I often skip it, forget about it or grab something really unhealthy because I haven’t planned it very well.

I’ve found a lot of great healthy breakfast ideas online recently and, using those as inspiration, I started making smoothies for breakfast and I really haven’t looked back! Our Breville Blend Active makes smoothies easy to take out and about with me – on the school run or to work – and frozen and tinned fruit makes the ingredients convenient too.

Here are two of my favourite smoothie recipes for breakfast time – stick it in a blender and blend!

Peach and Mango Smoothie

  • Half a tin of peach slices in juice, drained
  • 100g frozen mango
  • 120ml water

Mixed Berry & Banana Smoothie

  • 100g frozen mixed berries
  • 150ml water

Apart from smoothies I often have whole wheat cereals and skimmed milk, fruit and low fat yogurt or porridge to keep me going through the day. I’ve found that if I have a good breakfast I am more likely to eat better through the day, not snack as much and have a generally healthier diet.

What are your favourite things to have for breakfast? Or are you like I was, skipping breakfast most days and just not having the time? If that’s you, grab an apple or a banana – something is definitely better than nothing.

    I use a nutribullet for my morning smoothie which I LOVE. But I always put in the same amount of spinach (tend to find fresh nicer but frozen works too) as fruit in. You don’t taste it at all! It does give it a lovely bright green colour but your getting all the healthy benefits from the spinach. My fave mix is frozen mango, frozen pineapple, spinach and water or sometimes coconut water!
