How to make Vegan Breakfast Smoothies?
Just imagine that you have to pack your bags and reach your workplace early morning for an important meeting.
When you are time-strapped, nothing can be quicker and tastier than a healthy fruit smoothie.
Many people may feel that smoothie can never be as stodgy as a 3 or 4-course breakfast.
That’s not true; a smoothie can be equally filling as proper breakfast.
You need to add the right ingredients, which are delicious, filling, and easy to prepare.
If you have overslept, are feeling groggy in the morning, or don’t have enough energy to boil or fry an egg, this fast and simple breakfast smoothie recipe will be a lifesaver.
You can make once in large quantities and carry some to savor in your lunch break.
This smoothie is a true example of simplicity and versatility.
You can easily switch between orange juice and almond milk as per your taste or add plain yogurt to make it creamy and thick.
You can make it a single-fruit smoothie or simply mix your favorite fruits in it.
We prefer to blend our smoothie with chilled and sliced frozen fruit mix as a part of the breakfast routine.
Sometimes adding banana slices and a few drops of coconut oil give your smoothie a creamy twist.
If you like it to be extra creamy, add more coconut oils.
You should stock sufficient frozen fruits to be able to whirl up your favorite smoothie without any trouble.
Alternatively, you can make smoothies with fresh fruits daily if you have time to buy them.
Suppose you have started walking on the vegan path and wondering that which one thing you should stock up in the freezer to make life easy.
Well, the answer is FROZEN FRUITS.
· Frozen fruits are lifesavers in those hectic and tiring days. They are invaluable due to the following reasons:
· They get long life if kept in the freezer
· Blessed with a sweet tooth? Satiate yourself by munching on some deliciously frozen fruits.
· Fruits are incredibly versatile – you can use them in making milkshakes, smoothies, add them on your oatmeal, or dip them in infused water.
· They are packed with phytonutrients and antioxidants and a boon for your health.
Coconut oil is packed with plenty of health benefits by being a potent energy booster, a great hunger buster, and a strong support system to your vital organs and brains. Remember to use virgin coconut oil to derive the maximum health benefits.
Processed or refined oil loses most of its sheen in the processing stage. Apart from coconut oil, powdered ginger is another personal favorite.
Its excellent anti-inflammatory properties help in strengthening your immunity.
You may also like to add ginger roots instead of powder to get a stronger flavor and as a healthier alternative.
And my final addition is chia and flax seeds. These tiny and super-healthy seeds are a must-add in all our smoothies.
We were initially skeptical in trying out these seeds, thinking that all these are hyped up.
All our disbelief or skepticism got busted the moment we tried it and experienced the health benefits.
These super seeds are antioxidant-packed and rich in protein and fiber.
But their true USP is that they will keep you full for longer once you add 1 or 2 spoons of chia or flax seeds in your breakfast smoothie.
Plant-Based Morning Vegan Breakfast Smoothies!
Some of us prefer healthy and delicious entrees such as fresh yogurt, breakfast bars, or overnight oats.
Now, the problem with this otherwise super-healthy breakfast is it lacks fruits and veggies.
As a result, your body is not receiving enough plant-based nutrients that it should. It’s not always easy to snap up breakfast salad or veggie scramble as fast as you think.
The next best and healthier alternative is blending up a green smoothie for yourself and slurp every drop to your heart’s content.
It would help if you didn’t think only about your convenience while blending up your breakfast smoothie.
These green smoothies are nutrient-packed powerhouse which can gradually make you super-healthy.
Eating plant-based foods is one of the proven and simplest ways to feed your immune system with vital nutrients.
Okay enough of plant-based smoothies hacks. Let’s get down to making the delicious smoothie that I promised you!
