Delicious, balanced breakfast smoothies can revolutionise your mornings. In today's fast-paced world, finding the time for a nutritious and satisfying breakfast can be a challenge. That's where breakfast smoothies come to the rescue.
Here are three reasons to start making breakfast smoothies.
Breakfast smoothies are a time-saving breakfast option that allow you to consume a variety of nutrients in just one glass. They’re the perfect blend of flavour and nourishment, creating a convenient solution, packed with essential vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, protein, fruit, veg and fibre. In under 5-minutes you can have something healthy and delicious in your hand as you walk out the door.
Breakfast is often hailed as the most important meal of the day, and for good reason. It can provide the necessary fuel to jumpstart your metabolism and sustain you throughout the morning. However, many of us end up rushing out the door with nothing more than a cup of coffee. A well-balanced breakfast smoothie can provide sustained energy throughout the day. Ingredients like oats, chia seeds, and nut butter release energy slowly, preventing mid-morning crashes and keeping you focused and alert. See for yourself after trying Ella’s Go-To Smoothie.
Adding ingredients like plant-based yoghurt, fruits such as berries and bananas to your smoothie, nuts and seeds can promote a healthy gut microbiome, loading you up with fibre, probiotics and prebiotics, which are linked to various aspects of wellness, including digestion and immune function. Smoothies are also a great way of helping us reach the goal of consuming 30 different plants a week (key to good gut health).
