When is the Best Time to Drink a Healthy Smoothie?

While it’s great to have a smoothie in the morning, it’s not the only time you can go for one. In fact, smoothies can be enjoyed throughout the day. Having said that, the real question is not when to have a smoothie, but whether the ingredients in your smoothie are right for the time of the day. Think about it this way, you are unlikely to eat a heavy dinner meal for breakfast or a full English breakfast as an evening meal. The same applies to smoothies – certain ingredients are better in the morning, others in the afternoon or evening. Here’s a general guide:

Morning: Smoothies are a fantastic breakfast option. If they are the first thing you have when you wake up, they will energise you and fill you up.

In the morning you can get adventurous with a variety of nutrients including carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats and antioxidants. Fruit, nuts, oats, seeds – all of these work perfectly to start the day. Remember, carb heavy smoothies are best consumed in the morning.

Afternoon Snack: Go for ingredients such as leafy greens including kale, spinach, broccoli, romaine lettuce, cabbage, watercress or bok choy. Add zest to your leafy green smoothie with citrus fruit such as oranges or grapefruits, or give those taste buds a punch by adding ginger.

Dessert: A smoothie can also be a great healthy dessert choice. Think about ingredients such as dark chocolate, berries, bananas, exotic spices and almond milk.
