Good Morning Breakfast Smoothie
This smoothie is the perfect way to start your day. The caffeine from the coffee (if caffeinated) will perk you up and you will get the health benefits from all of the ingredients. It won’t just make your morning good, it will make your body feel good, too.
How does it taste? The sweetness comes from the banana and honey, and you definitely get a coffee flavor. You should like the flavor of coffee before trying this smoothie!
Bananas: Bananas are full of health benefits, and they are one of the most inexpensive fresh fruits you can buy.
Greek Yogurt: Greek yogurt has a higher protein content than other yogurts. But, be careful when you choose yogurt; many times they have lots of added sugar. Look for unsweetened Greek yogurt for the healthiest option. You can use any flavor yogurt you have on hand as a substitution.
Coffee: You should use a coffee that you also enjoy drinking. Once your coffee is brewed, set aside about half of a cup to use in this smoothie. Coffee is full of health benefits from improving brain function, boosting your mood, helping burn fat, and lowering the risk of certain types of cancer and Parkinson’s disease. You could also use decaffeinated coffee if preferred for many of the same health benefits.
Honey: I recommend using raw honey for the best results. Raw honey has not been heated or pasteurized and contains a range of benefits from anti-oxidants to anti-viral to anti-bacterial properties. It can even be soothing for burns and wounds. Plus, it’s nice to support your local honey producers.
How to Make a Good Morning Breakfast Smoothie
To make the smoothie, simply add all of the ingredients into a blender. Then, puree until everything is well-blended. If you need to add more ice or water, add what you need to reach your desired consistency. This will make two 10-ounce smoothies. Cheers to a good morning and good health!
How Long do Smoothies Last?
This smoothie will last up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Be sure the container is filled all the way to the top before being sealed. If air gets in the smoothie, it will make the smoothie less nutritious. Or, you can freeze the smoothie in a freezer-safe container. It will last up to 2 months in the freezer.
Can I Make this Smoothie Ahead of Time?
Yes! As previously stated, this smoothie can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months. Store it in jars with lids (like mason jars). When you are ready to enjoy the smoothie, let it thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature until thawed. Shake it up and enjoy!
Another way to make smoothies ahead of time is to freeze the mixture in an ice cube tray. Fill each cup of the ice cream tray with an equal amount of the smoothie. Then, store it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
When you are craving a smoothie, add a few of the smoothie cubes to a jar or glass with a lid. Place in the refrigerator to thaw and shake it up when ready to drink it! You can also add the frozen cubes to your blender for a quick way to make a smoothie on those mornings you may feel rushed.
