This Healthy Breakfast Smoothie recipe is packed with protein and fiber from fruit, yogurt, and rolled oats. It’s the perfect breakfast to power your day.

Two clear glass cups filled with a healthy breakfast smoothie with three blueberries placed on top and extra fruit in the background.

Not all smoothies are created equal, and this Healthy Breakfast Smoothie has the perfect balance of ingredients to cram some extra vitamins and minerals into your day. 

For an even healthier breakfast smoothie I love to add spinach and a tablespoon of flax seed or chia seeds. You could also add a scoop of protein powder for a boost of protein. Make it your own and adapt the recipe as needed to use what you already have in your fridge or freezer.

Are Smoothies Healthy?

It depends on the smoothie recipe.  A lot of smoothies have tons of sugar and very little nutritional value.  You want to be sure your smoothie isn’t packed full of sugar (even when it comes from the fruit) and that it has a balance of protein and fiber. This smoothie is made with Greek yogurt and old fashioned oats, both of which will contribute additional protein and fiber to help you feel full and satisfied.

Berries are full of vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.  They also contain antioxidants that help fight off disease. Bananas are one of the healthiest foods on the planet; they’re full of potassium, fiber, and vitamin B6 and can help your body regulate stress and anxiety levels.  Pay attention to how you feel after eating one!

The ingredients needed to make a healthy breakfast smoothie, including frozen berries, Greek yogurt, canned peaches, bananas and rolled oats.
How to make a Healthy Breakfast Smoothie:
  • Add fresh or frozen fruit to your blender.  Add liquid (milk, water, or low-sugar fruit juice). 
  • Add old-fashioned oats, Greek yogurt, and a handful of ice. 
  • Blend very well, until smooth. Add more ice (to thicken) or liquid (to thin) until it reaches your desired consistency.

    This is a favorite at our house. We easily make it a few times a week a week before school. I love knowing that kids are starting the day with something healthy and they love the taste. Win win!

    Good recipe and great for mornings on the go. I have made this recipe a few times and I add a little extra milk as I find it comes out a little thick to my liking. I also have numerous times made a bigger batch and poured it into ice cube trays, once frozen I pop them out and put them into a bag and into the freezer. The night before I take 14 cubes out and put them in a cup in the fridge for them to thaw over night. In the morning I pour about 1/2 a cup of milk in (usually oat milk but any would do), shake it and out the door I go!

  3. My daughter loves fruit smoothies for breakfast once a week and she’s 6. I’ve been making them for her since she was 2 and she is an active, smart child (no bragging intended) I think it’s due to the blueberries and vitamins that are in the smoothie. We take the extra smoothie and freeze it into smoothie pops to make a nutritious snack as well. Thanks for the extra recipes! I’ve never added oats to a smoothie before but I’m looking forward to trying:)

  4. It is very easy to adapt this recipe to your taste, I did it with frozen berries, OJ and strawberry yogurt and it comes out as a sorbet. I do not use sugar as berries were sweet enough in itself.
