If we could have a slow, sit-down breakfast every single morning, we’d be all for it. Unfortunately, that’s just not always in the cards. As in, hardly ever. Thankfully, a fast breakfast doesn’t have to be a bland breakfast. With nothing more than a few simple ingredients and a blender, you can quickly whip up delicious smoothies that are packed with the nutrients you need to start your day and flavors you love while doing it. To get you started, here are three of our go-to favorite breakfast smoothies to kickstart your morning.
Berry and Oat Smoothie
This smoothie has all the fixings that you could hope for in a hearty, refreshing breakfast smoothie. For one, you’ve got oats, which are packed with fiber and are sure to keep you full all morning. Then you’ve got berries, bananas, and almond milk, which come together to give you a flavor that’s equal parts fruity, sweet, and creamy. Plus, you’ve got spinach in the mix for an added dose of greens that helps energize you for the day ahead.
