Jumpstart a healthier breakfast menu with ingredients rich in nutrients and energy. Use this 7-day breakfast smoothie challenge to treat yourself to energizing goodness each day of the week.
Sure, it seems convenient to grab a smoothie mix from the grocery store or a ready-made smoothie at the café, but what do you really get for that convenience? One thing you’ll get is plenty of nutrient-void sugar. The smoothies at one popular café chain often pack in more than 100 grams of sugar per serving—that’s more than twice the amount found in a 12-ounce can of soda! Those options are also full of calories, loading your waistline with about 400-600 calories per 24-ounce serving.
Homemade smoothies are a surprisingly easy way to power up your diet with healthy alternatives to processed or premade recipes. The breakfast smoothie ideas below contain whole food ingredients that offer fiber, antioxidants, and phytonutrients, which are plant-based chemicals that support human health.
