Good Morning Breakfast Smoothie
If you want to start your day off right, this good morning breakfast smoothie is the way to go! It is not only flavorful, especially if you love coffee, but it is also full of health benefits. I will let you know how you can make this smoothie ahead of time and how to store it in the freezer.
Bananas: Bananas are full of health benefits and 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 of 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.
Can I Make this Smoothie Ahead of Time?
Yes! Once you have blended the smoothie, it will last in the refrigerator for up to two days. 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.
Can I Freeze Smoothies?
Sure! Another way to make smoothies ahead of time is to freeze the mixture. It can be frozen in a freezer-safe container or in an ice cube tray. If using an ice cube tray, fill each cup of the tray with an equal amount of the smoothie. Then, store it in the freezer for up to 2 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.
Can I Make a Smoothie Without Using Ice?
Yes, it is possible to enjoy this smoothie without using ice. If that is your preference, simply use frozen bananas and yogurt. In addition, you could also serve the smoothie in a chilled glass. The smoothie may have a slightly different consistency than when made with ice, but it will still be delicious!

Please be careful when making claims about extra potassium being heart healthy. Too much potassium is as dangerous as to little potassium. Either one will stop the heart.
Hi, Deborah! I work with iambaker and am happy to help with comments. Yes, you are correct about potassium; thank you for making that clarification. Have a great day!
