Smoothies for breakfast are the perfect way to start your day because they don't require a lot of time to make and they will fill you up for hours. This nutrient-dense recipe calls for almond milk, which is a good source of vitamin B12, superfoods like kale and limes, hydrating veggies like cucumber, and healthy fats like hemp seeds which are also high in omega-3s, essential fatty acids that improve eye health, boost mood, help heart health and offer a host of other health benefits. You will also add a scoop of vegan vanilla protein powder (for help finding which brands work best for you, check out our protein powder taste test).

Note: Stevia drops are optional if you want to pass up on a sweet smoothie. Happy blending!
