Best Breakfast Smoothie!
Healthy breakfast smoothies are definitely a morning go-to on Team Fit Foodie, and we have officially dubbed this bad boy The Best Breakfast Smoothie because it truly is the best ever.
Not only do you get your protein, a serving of fruit, and healthy fats, but this smoothie recipe tastes like dessert. I make this smoothie weekly, and I’m here to tell you it’s truly the best.
Why make breakfast smoothies?
Best flavor combo: The combination of strawberries and bananas + protein powder + oatmeal + peanut butter is just the perfect mix to kick-start your day.
Healthy breakfast idea: this healthy breakfast is high protein, made with real fruit, and packed with healthy fats.
High protein: 12g protein/serving. Yes, please!
Is it healthy to have a smoothie for breakfast?
We love having smoothie recipe ingredients on hand so that whenever the smoothie mood strikes, we’re ready. One of the easiest ways to prep for this ahead of time is to cut up your favorite fruit to use in healthy smoothies and get it in the freezer.
That way, you can grab already sliced fruit from the freezer when you need it and plop it right into your blender. Where are my thick smoothie fans?! Using already frozen fruit in your smoothies will help give them this delicious texture.
What You Need
What does this smoothie taste like? Short answer- dessert! In my opinion, it tastes like a strawberry peanut butter shake, but it’s only 200 calories with 12g protein!
In order to make this smoothie, here’s what you need:

Breakfast Smoothies Tips
Choose a protein powder with a clean label. We’ve done the legwork for you and tested the most popular on the market. HERE are some of our faves.
Rolled oats are a great way to add nutrients, whole grains, and a little thickness to your smoothie
Healthy fats are another great addition to smoothies. A little peanut butter goes a long way!
Invest in a high-quality blender (we LOVE our Vitamix) so you don’t have to worry about getting any chunks in your smoothie!
We really mean it, get your sweet self a quality blender — it’s seriously one of the best kitchen investments we’ve made.
We have a Vitamix, and love it because it acts as a blender, food processor and mixer all in one, basically getting the exact texture we’re looking for every. single. time.
