Smoothies Recipes For Breakfast

Smoothies Recipes for Breakfast

As I am following the satvic lifestyle I have been trying smoothies for a while. We are providing you smoothies recipes for breakfast and also for the days when you are on a smoothie diet. You could have them as smoothies or juice them up depending on the time of the day you are trying to have them. Smoothies provide you with ample fibre while juices lack the fiber content. However the juice is what you have first thing in the morning, then it is better to avoid smoothies and stick to juices. Before we jump into the recipe let us address the most commonly asked question. Are smoothies good for you?

Benefits of smoothies

1. Saves time

When you are on a diet, it is difficult to cook all the fancy ‘so-called’ healthy diet which has ingredients that are not even appropriate for the Indian climate and seasons. If you are working or a parent with small children cooking something separately for you can be taxing. So just grind them up and gulp them down.

2. Aids digestion

As opposed to the juices smoothies are rich in fibre. The fibre content enhances the bowel movement thereby improving the digestion of food. If you make smoothies with almond milk or coconut water, it hydrates your body, flushes out the toxins, and regulates the body temperature.

3. Helps in weight loss

Smoothie diet can be incorporated by anyone in their diet. However, it has become the trend once the benefits of smoothies in weight loss have become known to laymen. Smoothies ensure you get the nutrients required without adding calories to your diet.

4. Nutrient-rich

Smoothies are rich in nutrients. Since you are using multiple fruits and vegetables, the smoothies are rich in various nutrients. As you customise your smoothie the nutrients that you receive are varied.

    I like the combos in these smoothies. But am not fond of banana, so will try the spinach and mango one without the banana, that should taste different. Never had an ashgourd smoothie as well, so that too is on my list. Loved the recipes overall.

  2. 5 stars
    My younger self indulged a lot in the ABC and the golden glow smoothies, this is a reminder for me to get back on track! Also, I could never bring myself to have green smoothies but your recipe makes it delicious enough to gulp down easily. Thanks Rakhi!

  3. Occasionally, I like to include smoothies in my diet. But run out of options. I want to try ABC and Golden Glow smoothies. Not a greta fan of green smoothies. Thanks for the recipes.

  4. Yes, smoothies are best way to boosting our diet’s nutrition content. it has been long since I try any new smoothie recipe. thanks dear for sharing many amazing smoothie recipe. would love to give them a try.

  5. Wow…I love to have smoothies only with base is curd. But these are wholesome. I would try ABC – Apple, carrot and beetroot with honey. I am wondering how golden glow will taste as it does not have any sweet except papaya..but surely will try.

  6. I love having smoothies. I don’t have them for breakfast because of my morning rush. I love having them as my evening post workout energy booster.

  7. Smoothies are a great way to start your day and I’ve tried only ABC and green smoothie so far. I think the other two might be good options as well

  8. Hey Raks, some fantastic recipes you shared for smoothies. The best thing about these recipes is that its simple yet healthy and I am sure tastes equally well too. I am sure I will love to go for it, but I would like to know if these recipes are ideal for my baby to consume? I would love to introduce smoothie to my son only if I get the confirmation from you that its good for him. Will be waiting for your suggestion and few more recipes of smoothies. After being a mother I am more concerned for my baby’s food

    Smoothies are indeed a great way to start the day rather than caffeine. They set the tone for a healthy and positive day. These are some really time-tested smoothies, and my favourite is ABC. Totally love it! Sandy N Vyjay

      Looks really yummy. Only once I prepare and taste I’ll know if I’ll like it. As you make them sound so easy… maybe I’ll try the green smoothie soon!

  10. I really want to try these smoothies, thanks for sharing this recipe. It is really so much required at this point in time to stay healthy.

  11. I love having smoothies for weight loss and dieting. The ABC smoothie I am surely having this one today. It is so rich in nutrients and tasty too.

  12. They all seem to be yummy! Thanks for the share, I would love to try out the golden glow to began with

  13. Honestly, I’m not a breakfast smoothie person and love to begin my day with our typical Indian fare. These smoothies are great though and would like to try ABC as a pre-workout drink.

  14. 5 stars
    We enjoy having smoothies for breakfast. I am surely going to try out your nut-free ones. Thank you for sharing them. Ash gourd one is the first I will try.

  15. Smoothies are absolutely amazing, in 2021 when I lost 22 kgs smoothies were to get a fair credit for them. I will surely try out your recipes love.

  16. I love smoothies, but in moderation. They helps provide me with energy throughout the day without sacrificing taste or nutrition! It’s a win-win situation for my body and taste buds.

    I will try making these smoothies by following your recipes. I will start first with the Golden Glow Smoothie. By the way, did anyone tell you that you are so talented Rakhi? I can barely get any time with all my personal and professional commitments.

  18. Healthy smoothies are good for health. Thanks for these easy and tasty recipes, going to try them all🤩
    (Have tried only ABC)

  19. i eat healthy food but I just can’t have such smoothies although I know they are good for me. I steer clear from these.I would rather eat them instead of a smoothie.

  20. You gave us ample options to prepare various smoothies. I am sure these are beneficial for both calorific value and healthy intake. I will try “ABC Smoothie” soon with the same measurements you mentioned here. Thanks for drafting this for our benefit.

  21. Suggested this to my Mother and we tried it. Thank you!

  22. 4 stars
    This innovative smoothie recipe masterfully combines a medley of flavors and nutrients, elevating your morning routine to a healthier level. A must-try for those seeking a refreshing and nourishing start to the day!

  23. wonderful part of smoothies they are much healthier than juices as they have some percentage of pulp and fibers.

  24. Wow Rakhi… I really really like these smoothie ideas. I have always thot that smoothies need milk and sugar so I never really got into giving them a shot as I try to avoid both as much as possible. I usually make vegetable juices.
    I have saved all of your recipes… the only prob for me is that I don’t mix fruits n veggies in my meals, so I will have to twist the ingredients a little. But thank you for this brilliant post and for changing my mindset about smoothies.
    P.S: It’s amazing that u follow a satvik diet… kudos to you. I can’t imagine doing that even in my next life😛.

  25. I prefer fruit smoothies more than vegetables. Of course, I understand the power of the heathy vegetables smoothies too…must get into this habit….soon!! 🙂

  26. I make ABC and Ashgaurd smoothie at home and it is always a hit. Another smoothie has me curious and excited to try it out. It’s fun to explore new smoothie flavours and see what they taste like. Thanks for sharing it.

  27. 5 stars
    We love smoothies for breakfast. Not a big fan of the green smoothie but will try your version with the bananas. Will give your other recipes a shot without the nuts and get back to you.

  28. These are some really yummy and healthy recipes! I would love to make myself a smoothie every morning but then I find clean up quite a chore! But definitely going to give these a try!

  29. Ur right smoothies are absolutely filling, they ensure that ur stomach doesn’t make hunger noises from time to time and most importantly it provides the necessary benefits that ones body would require.

  30. I’ve heard lots of great benefits juicing can give but this bread lady can’t resist having a piece of bread in the morning.haha.. I’ve been considering juicing for quite some time and might be having it for dinner instead. Great recipe options.

  31. Love these Smoothie recipes. These are something that i can make and drink as many smoothie recipes ask for yoghurt and I cannot digest yoghurt. These seem perfect for me and something i can easily make. Thank you for sharing.

  32. 4 stars
    I haven’t tried smoothies cz I am not keen on eating fruits! Maybe I should try it sometime soon!

  33. 5 stars
    Thanks for these recipes Rakhi. I love smoothies they are refreshing for me. I am pinning each of them because I now wont have to keep ordering.
