Green smoothies for busy mornings


Let’s be honest; life can be pretty hectic sometimes. Although we know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, sometimes it can seem impossible to fit this meal into our busy everyday lives. You might sleep through your alarm, you might realize that you have a deadline at work that you just can’t miss, or you might forget that you have to take your kid to before-school soccer practice. When these things get in the way of your breakfast, you might find yourself struggling to make it to lunchtime. Well, struggle no more! These green smoothie recipes are perfect for busy mornings.

Avocado and mango smoothie

One of the main reasons why smoothies are so popular is because they come in all shapes and sizes. They also come in all kinds of thicknesses, and you can tailor your smoothie game to suit you. Thicker smoothies will often make you feel more full, which is why we love this avocado and mango smoothie. All you need for this recipe is ½ avocado, ½ cup frozen mango, 1 banana, 1 cup almond milk, and 1 tablespoon of honey. The avocado and the banana will add a smoothness to your smoothie that will tantalize your taste buds, and that’s before you even realize how awesome it tastes.

Green vegetable smoothie

If you’re the kind of person that loves vegetables more than you love fruit, there’s a high chance that you’ve been put off smoothies in the past. After all, smoothies are packed full of fruit, aren’t they? That isn’t always the case. The great thing about a smoothie is that you really can add anything to the blender and see what happens, and this green vegetable smoothie is the perfect example of what happens when this goes right. You’ll need 1 cup kale, ½ cup spinach, ½ green apple, and 1 cup of orange juice for this one. You can thank us later.

Green kiwi smoothie

There’s just something so inviting about a green smoothie, but many people assume that they need all kinds of weird and wonderful ingredients to make these smoothies a reality. You’ll be happy to know that this just isn’t the case. This green kiwi smoothie requires just four ingredients that you probably already have in your home. Simply blitz ½ green kiwi, ½ cup frozen mango, 1 cup kale, and 1 cup of orange juice into the blender and then pour into a cup. Not only will it be deliciously sweet, but it will also have a tang that you just won’t be able to get enough of.

Blueberry dream

Let’s be honest; some smoothies just don’t look great. When you mash a whole load of food together, it’s never going to look great – but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t going to taste delicious! This blueberry dream smoothie requires 1 cup blueberries, 1 cup pineapple, 1 banana, 2 cups spinach, and ½ almond milk, and it actually works best if you use a frozen banana. When you blitz this in the blender, the finished product will look a little rough. The color will be strange, and there will be bits all over the place. However, the taste will certainly make up for it.

If you are the kind of person that just never has time for breakfast, these smoothies will certainly have your back!
