Breakfast/brunch Smoothie To-go

With a busy schedule full of practice, private coaching, school work, a social life, and family, it's common to not be able to find time to cook a well-balanced breakfast. So, I'll be sharing with you an alternative method to enjoying breakfast that can be taken on the go and will still deliver the nutritional components you are looking for. These to-go breakfast/brunch smoothies take no longer than 15 minutes, so in just 15 minutes you can make something that'll carry you until your next meal.


Breakfast/brunch smoothies can be a simple way to squeeze some extra vitamins and minerals into your daily diet. Vegetables like spinach, kale, and beets are all rich in nutrients and can be easily blended into a smoothie. Fruits like strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and kiwis are also high in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals and can help boost the flavor of your smoothie. Other nutritious ingredients that you can add to your smoothie include nuts, seeds, yogurt, milk, and herbs. Though it’s important to pair your breakfast/brunch smoothie with a variety of healthy, balanced meals and snacks throughout the day to round out your diet and ensure that you’re getting the nutrients you need.


With that being said here is my personal favorite breakfast/brunch smoothie...
