5 Cleansing Smoothies For A Lighter Breakfast

Instead of making the usual eggs with spinach or a Greek yogurt, try one of these smoothies listed below. Each is packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Plus they're loaded with healthy fats for stable moods. Smoothies make a healthy and easy breakfast option when you're a busy person on the go. To save time, you can make your smoothie the night before.

Feel free to add a scoop of plant-based protein such as Vega, hemp protein or Sun Warrior for a boost of protein. If you want to supercharge your smoothie, add spirulina, maca, chorella, or bee pollen. To spice things up, add a 1-inch piece of ginger or a dash of cayenne or cinnamon.
