Breakfast smoothies are usually a good idea, but most people are confused when it comes to smoothie recipes. Don't be put off by the beautiful smoothie; they're a lot easier to make than you may assume. 

Smoothies are a delicious way to start the day, especially for those who don't have much time in the morning to prepare and eat breakfast. Smoothies are an excellent way to power yourself with protein, carbohydrates, and essential fats while feeling too full for a short pre-yoga meal or snack. Smoothies have numerous health benefits, including being an excellent way to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. You can also get the benefits of probiotics if you add a little yoghurt.

Fruits are high in antioxidants and vitamins, and they aid digestion. There are many fruits to pick from, from bananas to mangos to pineapples. The most important thing is to make sure the fruits you'll be using are fresh, in season, and, ideally, organic. Berries, bananas, stone fruits (peaches, plums, mangoes, nectarines), and citrus fruits like pineapples, oranges, lemons, limes are the best fruits to utilize.  

Add Greens 

You must select your vegetables carefully if you want your smoothie to be as nutritious as possible. Because you shouldn't feel bloated or full when doing yoga, use light vegetables. Leafy greens (spinach, kale, Swiss chard), avocado, beets, carrots, celery, cucumber, and pumpkin are some of the greatest vegetables to use. 

Add A Dose Of Protein 

You'll need a protein boost for a session packed of strengthening poses. The best proteins are those derived from plants. Chia seed, hemp seed, plant protein powder, natural nut butters, and organic rolled oats are some of the alternatives. These nutritious proteins are perfect because they are compatible with nearly all dietary regimens and restrictions.  

Now, it is time to transfer all the goodness n a blender. Blend on medium-high speed with the lid on until smooth. If necessary, add more liquid. Pour, serve, and have fun!
