Get in the seasonal and holiday spirit this fall with these healthy breakfast smoothie recipes! From gingerbread to pumpkin spice, peppermint mocha to hot chocolate, hot mulled cider to apple pie, these healthy smoothies taste like the season in a glass!
We all know the drill: kicking off with Halloween, into November with Thanksgiving and then pretty much the entire month of December, the fall and holiday season is filled with sweet temptation.
From candy, to breakfast pastries, to every type of holiday cookie imaginable, to rich drinks like hot chocolate and eggnog — a sea of sugar and flour is upon us!
While it's certainly delightful to indulge occasionally (remember the 80-20 rule?), it often feels like this time of year is just one big indulgent season.
And it can be hard to resist that cookie platter your neighbor dropped off, or the boxes of festive donuts just sitting there, waiting to be eaten at your office meeting.
Here at R+R, you don't have to resist! These delicious, festive, healthy breakfast smoothies are so satisfying and delicious, you won't even crave that other stuff – because who needs pumpkin pie when you've had it in a glass for breakfast? 🙂
PRO TIP: Invest in a Vitamix for blending these smoothies–this high-powered blender breaks up frozen fruit, leafy greens, nuts and other crunchy bits into oblivion, with no chunks, easy clean up, and the blender is so versatile–I also use it for soups, sauces, homemade nut butters and nut milks, and frozen cocktails 😉
Be sure to bookmark these festive fall smoothie recipes so the whole family can enjoy!
