Since so many people think that skipping meals will help with weight-loss, breakfast is usually the first to go. Even the best of us skip breakfast on occasion, or instead, we’ll grab something easy, but usually unhealthy. Luckily, there is a super easy way to start your morning right without skipping meals: breakfast smoothies.
These low-effort drinkable meals usually involve simply blending ingredients all at once. Plus, most of the ingredients are already lying around your kitchen, including everything from fruits to juices to nuts. You even get a chance to use fresh greens, veggies, and other foods you wouldn’t normally add to your breakfast. While many are already packed with protein and vitamins, you can always add a powder supplement with extra nutrients as well. Without further ado, here is a list of 7 breakfast smoothies that can help with weight loss. Blend, shake, and enjoy!
