Need to get your day started quickly but don’t want to skip out on a healthy breakfast? This quick 5 minute or less avocado smoothie will get you on the road without worrying about that midday energy slump that can hit if you eat something that’s high in sugar like a bagel or cappuccino muffin. It’s also incredible for those of you looking to step up their game and have loads of energy throughout the day. Getting more done has never tasted better. To start, slice and dice a fresh pineapple the night before so that it’s frozen in the morning and ready to use. Pineapple tastes fantastic in smoothie recipes, and helps strengthen bones, eye health, and solves some digestion issues. Every ingredient in this recipe does its part of delivering a nutritious breakfast, every time.

Flaxseed meal is the next ingredient you’ll want to add into the blender. Flaxseed is known as one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. There’s even evidence that flaxseed may, in fact, help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes. (1) Next, add a cup of plain kefir to the blender. Kefir is an excellent probiotic and can help your gut massively. Having healthy gut flora is key to your well-being. These microbiotas change over time, when the diet changes, and as overall health changes. They thrive on a diverse diet composed of plant-based whole foods, not processed ones. The microbial community that lives in your gut affects your overall health and behavior, so it makes sense to feed them the right stuff. (2)
Grate some fresh ginger next, then add it to the blender with some lemon juice. Citrus fruits such as lemons are high in vitamin C, which is a primary antioxidant that helps protect cells from damaging free radicals. (3) Vitamin C can also help reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke and can even lower blood pressure.
Ground turmeric is the next beneficial ingredient that goes into this smoothie recipe. It has significant benefits for your mind and body. Turmeric contains bioactive compounds with incredible medicinal properties. (4) Turmerics main ingredient is Curcumin, an anti-inflammatory with mighty antioxidant powers. Once you’ve added honey, blend with ice, and serve right away.
