I’ve always enjoyed whipping myself up an healthy smoothie for breakfast, but since I’ve become a mom, I’ve found myself making smoothies even more due to several factors including the convenience and to help with postpartum weight loss.
Smoothies really are the perfect breakfast in my opinion – they’re easy to make, full of nutrients, filling and can assist with weight loss and weight management. (Plus it’s kinda fun coming up with different concoctions, right?)

Smoothies are great for anyone who’s wanting to lose weight for a number of reasons:
- Quick and easy to make, making you less inclined to grab something unhealthy like a Poptart
- They’re filling, which makes you less inclined to reach for an unhealthy snack later on
- Full of vitamins and minerals
Recently, I’ve been on a bit of a smoothie bowl kick, but all of the healthy smoothie recipes I’ve listed below can be enjoyed in a cup, too.
What You Need to Make The Best Smoothies
After burning through about 3 cheap blenders which barely blended everything, I finally decided to invest in a Vitamix. It’s one of the bigger investments I’ve made in a kitchen appliance, but if you make smoothies regularly, it’s definitely worth investing in a top-notch blender like the Vitamix.
I bought my Vitamix refurbished here and saved a good amount of money.
