Smoothie Recipes to Kickstart Your Mornings

April 20, 2022

How do you typically start your mornings? Does it include food with the ingredients that help you wake up and feel good, or are you stuck in the routine of a bagel and coffee? Fortunately, when you start your day with clean ingredients—naturally, you feel better. Do you really know what’s inside of that bagel and Starbucks coffee? Probably not. Our goal is simple: Help you read the labels so that you know what you are eating. 

If you’re waking up everyday and pouring the same "nutrient-dense" protein powders into your smoothie then struggling to find energy throughout the day, you may not understand what exactly is going into the makeup of your smoothie. We believe that if you do not recognize an ingredient, neither does your body. There's a secret to feeling your best that will revolutionize grocery shopping, meal planning and menu selections. I can't wait to share it with you. By reading the labels, our clients are gaining their energy back, feeling amazing  and health is looking good.

We are challenging YOU to try one of our smoothie recipes that will give you the boost you need to feel energized and full in the mornings until your lunch break. Plus, when you have a few smoothie recipes under your belt, you'll eliminate the need to wake up and read the labels because, guess what? There will be none! Store bought smoothies are full of chemicals and ingredients like added sugar that leave us with a mid-day crash. When making your own smoothies at home, you can regulate what ingredients you’re blending and how much. 

Is the Morning Smoothie Hype Real?


It absolutely is. From the clean nutrients to the natural energy, there is no doubt your body will thank you for starting your day off with a hefty intake of fruits and vegetables. After all, breakfast isn’t called the most important meal of the day for nothing.

Whether you have the morning wide open or you’re rushing to get ready in thirty minutes, our quick smoothie recipes are a great way to set the tone for your day. The best part? All you have to do is add the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth!
