3 Breakfast Smoothies That Taste Like Dessert

“Breakfast like a king. Lunch like a prince. Dinner like a pauper.” We all know that starting the day with a healthy, nutrient-dense meal is solid advice, but yet this remains the exact opposite of what so many people do. The common practice of eating cereal, pastries, and sweetened beverages in the morning wreaks havoc on your metabolism and sets you up for carb/sugar cravings for the rest of the day. I fully understand how tough it can be to prepare a nutritious meal every morning…that’s what makes smoothies so phenomenal. There are endless variations on the theme, but here are few favorites that I’m sure you’ll enjoy.


Smoothies for breakfast are a great idea if you need an on-the-go alternative to sugary muffins, cakes or donuts or coffee beverages. The great thing about smoothies is that you can put just about everything, but the kitchen sink in them and they can still taste fabulous.
