This easy and healthy carrot cake smoothie is packed with fruits and vegetables. Try this drink for a quick sip and go breakfast!
Let’s be honest. Green smoothies? They might taste delicious. They might be packed with nutrients, they may even be a great way to give you fuel to get the day going! But they sure don’t look very good! I drink a green smoothie at least a couple mornings a week. My favorite is this Mango Peach Green Smoothie.
I totally love the fruity flavors and can’t tell at all that it is packed with spinach. But, I never drink it in a clear glass because bright green thick liquid? Yeah, not super appetizing. However, this delicious Carrot Cake Smoothie is an exception. It is packed with fruits and vegetables, but is beautiful too!

What are some other easy healthy breakfast recipes?
One of my favorite easy breakfast recipes that can be made ahead of time are these Flourless Peanut Butter Protein Muffins. They are loaded with fruit, peanut butter and protein and they taste more like dessert than breakfast! I always use dark chocolate chips to make these extra decadent.
Another breakfast I love to make ahead of time are these Keto Sausage Egg and Cheese Bites. They are less than one net carb each and reheat perfectly for meal prep. Some other ideas include:
