Peaches & Greens- A Great Breakfast Smoothie
If you’re a busy mom trying to work in daycare drop off, travel time and hustling kids out the door chances are you don’t have much time for a sit down, great breakfast (like these tasty yogurt pancakes!). And yet, a good start to your day is exactly what you need! This breakfast smoothie includes just about everything but the kitchen sink. It’s quick, healthy and will jack up your system and get you ready to rock the day.
Healthy Smoothies are easily one of my favorites snacks or full on meals. It’s a fact well known (especially if you follow me on instagram) that me and my girls have a smoothie each and every day. Not only do they taste good but they’re quick, portable and you can jam in a lot of nutrients into just one cup. This makes them perfect for busy moms- and kids! Check out how to make better smoothies here.
This great breakfast smoothie has a little bit of everything in it. It’s a completely balanced meal in a glass with vegetables, fruits, lots of healthy fats and fiber. With all of the nuts and seeds in it there is a lot of plant based protein but add in a scoop of powder if you’d prefer a bit more.
And being that this smoothie is filled with real food, that also makes it very allergy friendly! Dairy free, gluten free and vegan (assuming you use a great vegan protein powder like this one), this smoothie is healthy and falls nicely into most of the dietary requirements you may have!
Most of us struggle to rock a healthy breakfast when we’re rushing out the door with kids (which is why I love these make-ahead breakfast ideas) which is why smoothies can be so helpful. Your body needs quality fuel to start off the day.
In giving it this, you (and the kids!) will have more energy, will be better able to focus and your systems will be able to jump into all the tasks they need to do.
You need a meal that keeps you full, revs your system and fuels your mind for productivity. On top of that, this peaches and greens smoothie does just that- and gets you in a veggie serving without you really realizing it! Mom win.
So much of the time we struggle, bribe, fight and call quits to getting veggies into our kids (and sometimes our own) diets. Smoothies are a perfect way to sneak extra vegetables, their nutrients and the benefits into a meal (here’s some other ways to hide veggies!). Instead, start your day off with the right kind of fuel.
This shake is a great breakfast. It’s simple and full of everything good for you- so blend up!

How To Make The Breakfast Smoothie
Blend all ingredients and enjoy!
Tip: if you don’t have a high powdered blender, place the almond milk, orange juice, avocado and syrup on the bottom of the blender to make it easier. Otherwise, you may need to use a tamper.
Note: If using protein powder, omit the maple syrup. Most protein powders are already sweetened!
