One of my favorite ways to start the morning is with healthy and refreshing smoothies.

There’s no better way to wake up on a warm sunny day than with a cool smoothie loaded with healthy ingredients.

They’re quick and easy to prepare for hectic mornings when we’re rushing out of the house, but they keep me full and energized all morning.

The best part about smoothies is you can customize them with whatever ingredients you prefer or have on hand.

Drink as is, or pour in a bowl and top with some granola and fresh fruit.

What You’ll Need To Make Smoothies

All you need to make your own smoothie is a base liquid (almond milk, coconut water, coconut milk), greens, a source of protein (Protein powder, flax and chia seeds, nut butter), and some fruit.

It’s easy as that!

One word of advice. In order to make the best-tasting smoothies, I recommend a high-power blender.

Nobody wants to drink a chunky smoothie.

Leafy greens are difficult to break down in lower grade blenders.

Don’t worry though, this doesn’t mean you need to spend $100’s of dollars.

I have the Ninja Blender and I couldn’t be happier. It comes with convenient single-serving cups and it makes perfect smoothies every time.

Once you have your blender, you’re ready to lose weight and kick your day off with these refreshing smoothies.

If you’re looking for a healthy protein powder to use, I love Orgain.  They’re made from clean ingredients and plant-based superfoods.
