Blending up a smoothie for breakfast is a convenient way to get some quality nutrients in at the start of the day.
Here, Built for Athletes has compiled five easy breakfast smoothie recipes for you to try at home.
You are of course free to get creative by adding or removing ingredients to taste.
Peanut Butter Smoothie
Start with a handful of strawberries, a handful of spinach and one tablespoon of peanut butter. Then add almond milk and whey protein if desired.
As well as an early dose of protein, this one packs B vitamins, iron, calcium and folic acid among other key nutrients.
Blend avocado, spinach, kale, pineapple and cucumber. Then add coconut water before blending again.
Blueberry Vanilla Smoothie
Blitz up a tablespoon of oats on their own first to make for a smoother texture. Mix in blueberries and kale with vanilla protein and vanilla almond milk.
Coconut & Almond Smoothie
This one stays on the coconut theme and is good for anyone with a sweet tooth. You’ll need almond milk, an apple (chopped), banana, oats, cinnamon and coconut flakes. Chuck in some flax seeds for additional antioxidants.
Granola Blueberry Smoothie
Granola goes really well in smoothies, doing a great job of adding some sweetness. For this recipe, blend it with a tablespoon of yoghurt, a handful of blueberries, a banana, a teaspoon of honey and milk.
