Breakfast smoothie: Mornings are meant to be enjoyed. The way you start your morning goes a long way in determining how well the rest of your day will go.
Personally, I start the day with a little meditation, some light exercise then I make a healthy breakfast smoothie to sip while I check my blog and other online businesses.
Making healthy breakfast smoothie is therapeutic in a funny way. The hum of the blender as the ingredients mix helps calm my nerves and the thought that I’m about to give my body some very good nutrition makes me feel so good about myself and makes me ready to conquer the world, feeling like superman.
This morning I had the Tropical Breakfast Smoothie which is a blend of Banana 🍌 , Pineapple 🍍, Mango and some Yoghurt. Very yummy, and the health benefits? Make one for yourself to find out 😜.
BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE; HEALTH BENEFITS TO THE BODY
Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Is Great For Detoxification
It has been scientifically proven that between 7am and 11am, the human body goes through the heaviest phase of detoxification. (Removing toxins and waste).
Drinking a healthy breakfast smoothie 🍹 will help contribute healing energy to this detoxification process.
It is not advisable to go about filling your body with hard to digest foods like fatty animal products 🍖🍗.

A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Is A Perfect Breakfast
Fruits🍏🍊🍋🍆🍒🍇🍍🍉🍈🍓 are the best way to start your morning, or “break the fast”
A healthy breakfast smoothie is naturally easy to digest and wakes up the metabolism with a steady influx of natural fruit sugars which do wonders to your mind and body (compared to refined sugars, harsh coffees ☕, and fatty meals).
A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Promotes Digestion
Drinking a healthy breakfast smoothie 🍹 infuses the body with beneficial enzymes, fiber, and probiotics that help stimulate digestive juices in the stomach and push out old waste matter from the food you ate the day before.
Fruit fiber cleans the colon like a broom, leaving you feeling light and refreshed, especially after doing your early morning business on the “throne” 🚽 😂
A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Fires Up Your Engines
Natural fruit sugars found in healthy a breakfast smoothie are just the thing the body needs after waking up.
Instead of reaching for your coffee, (yes I know the aroma and taste are addictive), trying making a coffee replacement with a healthy breakfast smoothie that will help keep the brain sharp and fired.
Remember, the brain works on glucose, so if you want to stay focused throughout the day, its just wise to then eat a nice big water-dense fruit meal that has the right natural sugars for breakfast!
For that, you can try the Raw Cocoa smoothie which is a blend of honey🍯, banana,🍌 raw cocoa, cucumber,🍆 and almond milk🍶. The taste is to die for.
A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Is A Perfect Weight Loss Regiment
A Healthy breakfast smoothie provides the body with high-quality nutrition and fiber and also helps release excess toxins the body has accumulated, by pushing out old waste matter from the intestines.
Drinking a healthy breakfast smoothie in the morning (and throughout the rest of the day) gets rid of excess toxins accumulated in the body.
This ultimately leads to weight loss in the end.
Most people are of the belief that if they eat a “heavy” rich meal in the morning, that it will keep their appetites low for the rest of the day, but this, in fact, has been found to be counter-intuitive.
People who consume a heavy meal in the morning also tend to eat heavier later in the day too, and nothing leads to weight gain like constant consumption of heavy meals.
A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Is An Incredible Immune System Booster
A Healthy breakfast smoothie compared to the daily routine of bacon and eggs 🍳 (and all those “yummy” stuff we eat) is a lot better for your immune system and overall health.
Fruits are high in vitamin C and antioxidants, (helps keep you younger and fights free-radicals, aka “bad guys”) and strengthens the immune system to ward off all those creepy invading bacteria and viruses.
I go on a high-fruit, low-fat raw vegan diet for one week in every three months, and ever since I started, I rarely get sick and its now like I have this super energy 💪to kickass in all I do.

A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Increases Alkalinity In The Body
The first thing people think when they eat fruit is that it is too acidic but this is not true.
For example, Lemons are actually some of the most alkaline fruits on the planet! (Though the slap they give your taste buds makes you feel they are acidic as they make your head spin).
They may be acidic in form, but once they reach the stomach, the minerals (like potassium and sodium) disassociate to make it alkaline (via a variety of metabolic processes).
All fruit is alkaline, so make sure you eat plenty of it in the morning.
A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Makes You Feel Full and Satisfied
You might not think that fruit would make you full, but it really does!💪
Try eating a whole bowl of mixed fruits and tell me how you feel in the comments section below.
Fruits are loaded with rich fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
These are the phytonutrients that tell the brain it’s satisfied, and to shut off the hunger signal being sent to the stomach.
Make sure you eat enough fruit to feel full, in the end, you’ll feel full, satisfied, and bustling with excess energy used to overcome the day.
A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Strengthens The Heart
Fruits are packed with beneficial vitamins, minerals, crucial phytonutrients and antioxidants (i believe I have said this before 😉), that contribute to lower cholesterol levels and manage blood pressure.
You and I know this means a healthier, stronger heart 💞and a shield against cardiovascular diseases.
A Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Reduces Belly Fat
You see some men (and women) on the streets, and they look 15 months pregnant! 😱 (P.S. I’m not body-shaming anyone here). But the truth is, they don’t want their bellies so big too.
The good news is, fiber in fruit from a healthy breakfast smoothie will push out the old waste matter in the digestive tract which is a major cause of big bellies and get rid of lower-belly bloating.
Watermelon 🍉 which is a water-dense fruit can quickly help flush out excess salts from the body by encouraging urination. That way your body stops holding excess water and leaves you feeling light and agile.
