My breakfast smoothies contain, on average, 1 cup of almond milk, 1-2 cups of fresh spinach leaves, 1+ cups of fresh or frozen fruit, flax seeds, and sometimes a teaspoon of olive oil. I'll drink that on my way to work (45 minutes), but I also always have two eggs at home.

One of my favorites: 1/3 cup dry milk powder, 1 tablespoon peanut butter, 1/2 banana, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 2 teaspoons sweetener of your choice, with 1/2 cup cold water and 4 or 5 ice cubes.

*All good suggestions. You may want to consider adding some protein (whey protein or such) to whatever you drink because it will help you to feel fuller for longer.

a simple recipe I like: OJ, strawberries, banana and a few ice cubes to thicken it up.

I bought a NutriBullet a couple of weeks ago, and have been using variations of this for my morning breakfast shake:

- Kale or spinach
- blueberries
- strawberries
- banana
- dry oatmeal
- hemp or chia seeds.

Very filling. Gets me to lunch or close to it!

Below is a link for a good one - I would be inclined to add some Oat Bran and some milk to it, and/or some ground nuts, to make it more filling. You can play around with the ingredients, too. Think Blueberries - Think Peaches - Think Guavas - Think Dates and Honey..... I am sure that you can can up with a myriad more!

So, I often cannot eat a "fulling" breakfast in the short period of time I have in the mornings without making myself sick but have found that having a healthy shake in the mornings (something I can pour in a thermos and take to work with me so I don't have to chug it all down at once) has worked very well for me and I was just wondering if anyone has some good recipes for some healthy breakfast shakes?
