3 fast, healthy breakfast smoothies that will put a spring in your step
Struggle to have time for a proper breakfast during these frazzled homeschooling mornings?
Same, mama. So much same.
However, it is still the most important meal of the day, and the one that will often set the course, nutrition-wise, for how you eat for the rest of the day too.
So why not make sure you start right – and don't worry, it doesn't have to take much time at all.
We think it is hard to beat the smoothie when it comes to getting as much goodness into you at possible in the shortest amount of time, which is why we have rounded up three of our current favourites for you:
1. Blueberry Spinach Breakfast Smoothie
Blueberries are low in calories, high in fibre, and contain vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese. They are also one of the highest-ranking sources of antioxidants, making them a great disease-fighting fruit – in other words, certainly a good note to start the day on.

2. Golden Milk 'Frappuccino'
This vegan shake made with fresh turmeric and spices is bound to wake you up in the mornings. Best of all, it’s sweetened with dates, so you won’t have the sugar crash that comes from you usual Starbucks frappuccino.

3. Upside-Down Breakfast Smoothie
This not only looks so Instagram-worthy, it is also choc-a-bloc with good-for-you ingredients like blueberries, plant-milk and full-fat Greek yoghurt.
