Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and missing it wouldn’t be a great idea for your health. Smoothies are the perfect go-to breakfast when you’ve got no time to sit down with a newspaper and savor your meals. And the best part is, they aren’t just breakfast food. They’re the simplest to make as well as the least messy. All you’ve got to do is dump all your ingredients in the blender and switch it on. It literally couldn’t get any simpler and any more healthy.
1. Banana Ginger
The first smoothie is, of course, banana. It’s the most common type of smoothie to make. But try adding a touch of grated ginger, honey and vanilla yoghurt to a few pieces of sliced banana. Blend them in the mixer till it’s smooth. Add more yoghurt till you reach the consistency you’re looking for. This one’s good for some nausea, heartburn and digestion issues.
2. Green Tea, Blueberry, and Banana
This one seems like it has all the antioxidants combined in one. All you’ve got to do is take a cup of steaming hot water and dip a green tea bag in it. In the blender, mix the green tea, milk, a few blueberries, sliced pieces of banana and some honey. If your blender has the capacity to crush some ice, then add that too. Else put the smoothie in the freezer to cool before serving.
Take a blender and add around 8 strawberries, half a cup of yoghurt and half a cup of unsweetened coconut. If you want to experiment a bit, try adding some flax seeds for digestion, or even some cinnamon powder and oats.
It seems like berries and smoothies go hand in hand. For this one, you’ll just need a few raspberries, maybe enough to fill one cup. 3/4th cup of milk, two teaspoons of lemon juice, a few flax seeds and as much honey as you’d like, depending on how sweet you want it. Blend until smooth. This one would possibly serve 2.
5. Green apple
For those green freaks out there, cut up a green apple in small chunks, with the skin on. Add half a cup of spinach, a bit of grated ginger and half a cup of water. Instead of the water, you could also try adding the same quantity of lime juice. Blend until smooth.
This one’s going to come out thicker than the rest, for those of ya’ll who want to satisfy some thickshake cravings. Add a few chunks of pineapple, along with one cup of plain yoghurt. Add some ice as well, to dilute it and make it less thick.
7. Banana Kiwi Strawberry
This one’s loaded with all the protein in the world. Add one cup of apple juice, one sliced banana, one kiwi, a few strawberries and some honey according to your sweet tooth. Blend until smooth for the best dose of fitness and taste.
