Smoothies are super simple to whip up and make for a delicious breakfast. And you can throw whatever ingredients you have on hand into a blender and voila! Plus, you can customize them to your lifestyle and taste. Healthy smoothie recipes could also be good for weight loss.

“Nutritious, well-balanced smoothies can be a great addition to a well-balanced diet for weight loss and general health,” says Julie Andrews, RDN, the founder of The Healthy Epicurean. Not all smoothies are created equal, though, as some may be higher in sugar and calories than others and some may contain fewer nutrients that support weight loss and overall health, she notes.

What should you put in a breakfast smoothie? “Make sure your breakfast smoothies are rich in protein, otherwise, you will most likely be hungry way before lunchtime,” says Keri Gans, RDN, author of The Small Change Diet.. “Also, a little fat and fiber are needed for satiety as well as overall nutrition

And if you’re looking for some great ingredients to include in your smoothies, Gans recommends any type of berry, banana, spinach, kale, avocado, low-fat plain Greek yogurt, low-fat milk, non-dairy milk alternative that includes protein, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seeds, and nut butter.

If you need some serious smoothie inspo, here are some healthy and yummy smoothie recipes to try.
