I am sure you have heard somewhere, on some Instagram page or wellness blog, that starting your day with a healthy breakfast, like this green smoothie, sets the stage for the entire day.
I’m a firm believer that you can always make the choice to be healthier—doesn’t matter breakfast, lunch, or dinner, but this breakfast smoothie makes it easy to start your day loaded with nutrients. I also love this green smoothie as a midday “pick me up” and to cool down after a workout.
I’ve experimented with multiple green smoothie recipes, and this one stuck. So refreshing!
It also doesn’t have a banana in it—not hating on bananas (at all), but most all healthy smoothie recipes contain a banana, and I wanted to change it up. This easy smoothie is absolutely delicious and packed with superfoods, making it highly nutritious, detoxing, and healing.

Benefits of a Green Breakfast Smoothie
Starting your day with leafy greens and a healthy breakfast does have validity. You’ll notice shortly after your nutrient-packed smoothie: better focus, less of a desperate need for caffeine, and healthier food cravings throughout the day. Even though you can always make a healthy choice post-breakfast as well, this smoothie detoxes the body, fuels it properly and sets you up for a day filled with nutritious foods.
I’ve personally tested it for taste and results for the past year. My verdict? You have to make this!
