Part of your morning routine should include having breakfast and still take some time for a morning meditation session. A morning smoothie is a perfect meal to set the mood for your meditation practice, while also keeping you fueled and energized to tackle the day.

The following smoothies are the perfect companions for your meditation session. Sip as you let your mind wander away. Get them ready as you meal prep every week to make sure you have the time you need to enjoy your meditation practice without feeling rushed.

1. The Green Smoothie

It’s easy to go on with our days without eating our daily veggie serving. This smoothie is designed to help you start your mornings with a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals, as well as fiber and vitamin C. Enjoy as you listen to your favorite meditation playlist or try it an hour before your yoga class.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup spinach or kale
  • ½ cup of water
  • ½ cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ apple
  • 2 pitted dates for sweetness
  • 2-3 ice cubes

2. The Oatmeal Smoothie

If you need a more wholesome smoothie to start the day, this apple-oatmeal combo is your go-to recipe. Rich in fiber, vitamins, and the right nutrients to help you stay focused, this oatmeal smoothie is perfect for extended meditation practice. If it’s too cold in the morning, try warming this smoothie for an apple-pie like smoothie recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 small apple
  • ½ frozen banana
  • 1 handful of rolled oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Drizzle of honey (optional)

3. The Simple Smoothie

When you don’t want to pay too much attention to your smoothie, this simple recipe will always come to your rescue. Use this recipe to try different smoothie ideas by covering your bases: greens, carbohydrates, fats, and liquids. Once you’ve mastered the right ratio, the flavor possibilities are endless.

Ingredients

  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 small apple
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 cup of coconut water

4. The Morning Smoothie

It seems green juices go the best with morning meditation sessions. Try this recipe to reset your body and start the morning hydrated and powered. This recipe makes two servings, so you can separate the ingredients in containers to help you stay organized.

Ingredients

  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 fistful of kale
  • 1 fistful of romaine lettuce
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 1 broccoli stem
  • 1 green apple
  • ½ peeled lemon

5. The Classic Smoothie

This pink strawberry smoothie is as classic as its ingredients. The perfect balance of fats, protein, and probiotics will help your body set its purpose for the rest of the day. Just like your meditation practice, this simple smoothie is both healthy and refreshing. What better way to start the day?

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of frozen strawberries
  • ½ cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tsp honey (optional)
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk

Save these recipes for your next meditation practice. Even if multi-tasking is not your thing, starting your morning routine with a wholesome and healthy smoothie will nourish your mind, body, and spirit.
