Plant-Based Recipes / Smoothies / Breakfast Smoothies For Weight Loss

breakfast smoothies for weight loss

Starting my day with a green smoothie is a no-brainer. Yet, not all green smoothies offer the same types of nutrients + protein + natural sugar. So I’ve created the perfect breakfast smoothie formula, as well as am sharing my fav healthy breakfast smoothies for weight loss. These smoothies trigger the metabolism to start working. They contain a mix of ingredients that work together with my body, instead of against it.

Are breakfast smoothies good for weight loss?

A plant based breakfast smoothie, when made the right way, can help the body burn fat as well as build muscle. Most ‘breakfast foods’ in grocery stores today (I’m looking at you, colorful cereal aisle), contain complex, or refined carbs. And no, you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy these! I’m technically a plant powered foodie. I eat mostly plants, yet won’t say no to a slice of NY style pizza or homemade ice cream.

Refined carbs found in most cereals typically lead to:

  • A quick surge of energy, then a sugar crash
  • Serious health conditions such as Type II Diabetes and heart disease
  • Multiple, unknown ingredients that are overly processed
  • Unhealthy increases in weight

Thankfully, there’s a better way to breakfast.

Creating a healthy breakfast smoothie

A breakfast protein smoothie can provide sustainable energy without the crash through simple, whole food carbs. They also contain necessary fiber to break down those carbs, along with healthy fats.

These natural fats help the body feel full, minimizing cravings throughout the day. Breakfast smoothies for weight loss are super easy to create, taste incredible, and are for real healthy. Kale yeah!

The 4 recipes highlighted below are delicious, yet don’t be afraid to create your own breakfast smoothies too! Here are a few tips to becoming a smoothie creating machine.

Kickstart healthy habits through food

Another way to kick-start healthy eating habits is by utilizing whole foods to help the body reset. Check out my Thrive 7-Day Reset for a week-long cleanse that will get you on your way to whole body health. I don’t believe in weight loss through deprivation, instead I want to fuel my body the right way through energy-filled food.
