16 Gorgeous Breakfast Smoothies Worth Getting Out Of Bed For

Meet our latest healthy Instagram obsession.

If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, then why not make it the prettiest?

Smoothie bowls have been stealing the show lately, but these breakfast smoothies are more user-friendly — and still completely ‘gram-worthy. These beauties are just as good for you as smoothie bowls, but also have the advantage of being more portable and commute-friendly.

There are so many tasty smoothie options and add-ins that you’ll never get bored of using your blender. Start with a smoothie base you like (a thinner version of this green smoothie bowl will get you started), then get creative and add texture by layering fruit slices, chia pudding or crunchy granola for a smoothie parfait. (Bonus: Sprinkle nuts and seeds on top for a little healthy fat, or blend in some spinach for a vibrant and nourishing start to the day.)

Or, if chocolate is what you need to get you out of the bed in the morning, toss in some cocoa powder with those frozen bananas, and you’re essentially eating a milkshake for breakfast. (Score!) Looking for more smoothie ideas? We’ve got some visual inspiration below — feast your eyes on Instagram’s best and brightest creations for a sip-friendly, nutritious breakfast:

Morning Matcha

Mix in some matcha for an antioxidant boost.

Taste The Rainbow

Why settle for just one colour? These smoothie colours use frozen bananas, acai powder, butterfly pea tea, matcha, passion fruit & raspberries. (Talk about a morning boost!)

Upside-Down Acai Bowl

Make this Brazilian super-fruit part of your breakfast routine.

Pretty In Pastels

Get monochromatic and give your berries a moment to shine on their own.

Kiwi Kale Chia Parfait

A trifecta of fibre, protein and greens will keep you fuelled until lunch.

Gingerbread Jive

A healthier holiday breakfast with festive flair. (Ingredients like rice milk, frozen banana, protein powder and gingerbread spice create a flavourful and balanced base.)

Chocolate ginger bread smoothie & lucuma pudding. Raw ginger breads and bliss balls for decoration. Is it too early to bake ginger breads? I don't think so 🙃 I wish your Friday has started well dear friends 💖 💟 💟 RECIPE Smoothie: 3/4 cup rice milk, 1 frozen banana, 1-2 tbsp raw cacao powder, 2 scoops choc protein powder, 1/2 tsp gingerbread spice, 1 tsp maca, 1 tbsp agave syrup ➡️ blend until smooth RECIPE Lucuma pudding: 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1/2 cup natural youghurt, 1/2 cup rice milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp lucuma, 1 tbsp agave syrup ➡️ mix all and let set at least 1 h in the fridge 💟 💟 #maidoton #desserts#chocolat #rawchocolate #drool #onmytable #healthyrecipes #foodstyling #heresmyfood #getinmybelly #omnomnom #instayum #govegan #huffposttaste #buzzfeedfood #superfoods #rawvegan #show_me_your_food #recipeoftheday #eatforhealth #theartofslowliving #foodandwine #foods4thought #sokeriton #raakaruoka #terveellistä #healthiswealth #verilymoment #beautifulcuisines #lifeandthyme

Get Figgy With It

Fresh figs aren’t just for decorating cheese boards.

Neapolitan Dreams

For when you can’t decide between strawberry, vanilla, or chocolate.

Melon Magic

Fresh and juicy scoops of melon add colour, texture and flavour to this banana, zucchini and coconut layered smoothie.

Yesterday (and most days since I've started) I was feeling discouraged and limited by the SIBO protocol, but today I woke up feeling ready to think outside the box. Ready to let go of feeling confined. "I can make a low fodmap pastel layered smoothie, and I'm going to freaking do it!" ✨💪🏼 There's so much in life and in our minds that says no, no you can't. But what if we stop listening to the no, and started believing anything is possible? Imagine how free and empowered we'd feel. Life offers funny little reminders to snap out of it and that any single moment is a chance to turn the course. 💗 Smoothies are banana, zucchini and coconut base with black currant powder, Blue Majik and pitaya powder layers. #WuHaus

Chunky Monkey

Banana, peanut butter, chocolate … what more do you need?

Chocolate Cherry

Look again, that’s not ice cream. This beautiful concoction is a banana-raspberry-cherry blend (use frozen bananas) with chia pudding, chocolate and coconut.

Oh hello weekend, I've been waiting for you for so long! 😊😊😊 We are organizing my 5yo boy's birthday party later in the afternoon, I'm already very excited but also a bit stressed, wish me luck pleaseee 😉 * Anyway, I couldn't imagine any better way to start the day than with a big portion of nice cream. I was preparing it thinking about my friend Christina @addictedtodates who is now hosting a super fun #addictedtoicecreamparty party, have you already joined?? 🎉 * For this recipe I used: – 3 frozen bananas – handful of mixed frozen raspberries and fresh cherries – splash of coconut milk Blend everything until smooth and serve immediately 😋😋😋 I decided to serve it with some leftover coconut chia pudding, more cherries and chocolate chunks 🖤 * * * #cherry #nicecream #chiapudding #parfait #breakfast #inspiration #dairyfree #icecream #cherries #healthychoices #healthyfood #foodie #veganfoodshare #veganfood #beautifulcuisines #whatveganseat #berries #summer #vegansofig #instafood #healthy #plantbased #vegan #chia #foodpics #smoothie #foodphotography #picoftheday #recipes
