Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day it better be something that checks off all the boxes: tasty, full of fiber, good source of protein, high in antioxidants and phytonutrients, and practical. I wake up very hungry every morning, so there really isn’t time for me to make a big elaborate Sunday-style breakfast. I like my first meal to take less than 5 minutes to prepare!

What’s easier to make in the morning than a breakfast smoothie?  I love that I can pack so many easily digestible nutrients into cup. Green smoothies are great––I drink them almost every morning––but there’s also room for other breakfast smoothies. If I wake up with a mega sweet tooth, or need an extra boost of energy I’ll make a breakfast smoothie with raw cacao powder. Sometimes I want something slightly tart and tangy so I’ll go for a smoothie with fresh ripe pineapple.

A few tips for making the most of your breakfast smoothie, and you mornings:

  • Prep your smoothie ingredients the night before if you expect to be in a big hurry in the morning. You can keep the ingredients in a glass jar in the fridge, then pop them into the blender with liquid when you wake up.
  • Not all blenders are created equal, which I’m sure you know if you’ve ever noticed wide price range for this appliance. If you are on a budget I recommend the Magic Bullet. Look for a used or refurbished model to save even more money. If you have a larger budget consider the professional Vitamix or KitchenAid pro-line. They will each turn your fruits and veggies into creamy bliss. I’ve owned them both, and they’re both very loud, so keep that in mind if you’re the first one awake in the morning. You can also save money on these very expensive blenders by looking for one used or refurbished online.
  • My non-dairy milk of choice is plain unsweetened organic soy milk. I buy the Trader Joe’s brand. The ingredients are just soy beans and water. Simple and pure. Soy milk is a great choice for your breakfast smoothie because it contains the highest amount of protein, and because it’s easy to find without additives like carrageenan and gums. Homemade nut milk is also a good choice.
  • Take a smoothie for the road. I often take a smoothie with me as an afternoon snack or pick-me-up. I usually keep it in a small cooler in my car until hunger strikes.
  • Wash and dry your greens and keep them stored in an airtight container with a sheet of paper towel to absorb excess moisture. This will help you avoid washing greens for your breakfast smoothie in the morning. You should only have to do this twice a week. I usually do it at night so I can grab-and-blend in the morning.
  • Replace banana in a smoothie recipe with ripe avocado.
  • Instead of using fruit juice in a breakfast smoothie, use whole fruit. It’s just as juicy. For example, you’ll see in the recipe below I use fresh pineapple and a dash of water instead of pineapple juice. Use a whole peeled orange instead of orange juice in recipes. That way you can have the liquid, and also retain all that good healthy fiber.

  • 1-1 1/2 cups ripe pineapple, use more or less depending on how sweet you want it

Berry Green Smoothie | Energizing Breakfast Smoothies

By: Jenné
This is the smoothie I drink on a daily basis, however I usually use fresh pineapple and a little water instead of non-dairy milk. Either works fine, but lately I've been craving the tang from pineapple, and it helps to cut any bitterness from the dark leafy greens well. If you don't want too much sugar first thing in the morning stick to non-dairy milk. BTW, the cinnamon helps keep your blood sugar levels in balance.
Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 2 minutes
Servings: 1


  • 1 cup non-dairy milk, or 1 cup pineapple + 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups fresh kale or spinach
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 ripe banana, fresh or frozen
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Blend until creamy. I like to blend this one a little longer to make sure the chia seeds and berry seeds are all incorporated.

But I’ve given him the challenge of being in charge of the between meal snacks.

  5. Hi There, I had friends down for the weekend and my girlfriend and I made your Raw Coconut Carrot Cake.

The spice mix works perfectly, the recipe was clear and easy to follow
    It will definitely become a regular recipe in my kitchen. Love your work! Ruth

  6. I did try Avocado Pineapple Smoothie and it went great! I often make advocado smoothie as it’s my favourite so it was the first time I added pineapple. The taste was so good! I absolutely make it more times xo
