Let’s eat the rainbow! Or, with these healthy breakfast smoothies, drink the rainbow through a straw (or scoop it up with a spoon… how you like to enjoy your smoothie is really up to you).

How to Meal Prep Healthy Breakfast Smoothies

Today we’re continuing our “grab & go” series with Almond Breeze, (see parts 1, 2 and 3). The idea with these breakfast smoothies is that you assemble all of your fruits & vegetables ahead of time so that your morning smoothie is fast and easy to make. Chop up your fruit (and veggies if you want a green one), and pack them away in freezer-safe containers or baggies – I made enough for 5 days a week – because weekends are for waffles.

Add in some superfood fun if you like, all of these are optional, but they’re tasty nutritional additions to play around with in a breakfast smoothie. I like to add a scoop of nut butter to make my smoothie more filling, so I stay satisfied till lunch:

Pour in enough almond milk to get your blender moving – and then go get moving! It’s time to start the day :). Happy Monday!

Total time
Prep fruits and veggies ahead of time to make blending these healthy breakfast smoothies a breeze on busy mornings.
Recipe type: Beverage, breakfast
Serves: 1 each
Freeze into each container:
  • ½ banana
Strawberry Goji:
  • big handful of strawberries, sliced
  • ¼ cup dried goji berries
  • 1 peach, sliced
  • handful of raspberries
  • ½ tablespoon almond butter
Mango Maca:
  • slices from ½ of a large mango
  • 1 peach, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
Spinach & Mango
  • slices from ½ of a large mango
  • handful of fresh spinach
  • 1-2 teaspoons matcha
Cherry Blueberry Cacao:

Blend each smoothie with:
  1. Assemble ½ banana into each freezer container (or freezer safe baggie). Add fruits/vegetables, then place your containers into the freezer until you're ready to blend each one.
  2. Blend each smoothie with a few pieces of ice and ½ cup to ¾ cup almond milk (enough almond milk to get your blender blade moving).
  3. Blend in "extras" (goji berries, almond butter, maca, matcha, cacao) at the end.
I use a Vitamix - if your blender isn't as powerful, let your frozen smoothie ingredients thaw at room temp for just a few minutes.

  1. Truly appreciate the way you made this wonderful recipe. Everything is so nicely described that really helped me. I am looking forward for more such yummy recipes in future too.

    This is exactly what I needed. I usually don’t have time to make breakfast in the mornings, but this simple meal prep can change that. I never really thought about meal prepping a smoothie, but it honestly makes a lot of sense. I really appreciate how you laid a handful of recipes so that I can have a variety of food to try.

    where did you find these glass containers? I find them extremely adorable and they also will be extremely useful for college so i wanted to get some.

    I love smoothies but never make them. These sound delicious. I am, however, very allergic to bananas and never know what a good substitute would be. Do you have any recommendations?

    • Ronnie

      I am also allergic to banana – here are options I’ve found to replace them in smoothies:

      • Afroz

        I too have developed a recent allergy to bananas that is so severe that I end up puking. This helped a lot, thanks
