What To Eat With Smoothies For Breakfast • Kath Eats

Curious about what to eat with smoothies for breakfast? Elevate your morning with easy recipes that complement your favorite smoothie, creating the ideal balance between convenience and chew-worthy satisfaction.

It’s Smoothie Week!

This week I’m sharing four smoothie-themed posts. Get ready for a beautiful acai bowl and mint chocolate smoothie recipe!

It’s no secret that I love smoothies. I have many smoothie recipes on KERF, especially my beloved smoothie bowls, but I know that a smoothie for breakfast doesn’t always satisfy everyone’s appetite since they don’t have the chew factor.

Smoothies are quick, convenient, and contain a powerful dose of vitamins, nutrients, and fiber. But if you typically crave a more satisfying, chewy start to the day, I’m sharing several ideas on which foods pair perfectly with your breakfast smoothies, allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds.

Ingredients for a Filling + Healthy Smoothie

Greek yogurt: Take the creaminess to the next level by adding a big scoop of Greek yogurt with whole milk. Packed with protein, satiating fats and gut-friendly probiotics, it improves texture, keeps you full and promotes healthy digestion.

Frozen fruit: Whatever you have on hand! We always have frozen bananas and berries in our freezer. My kids especially love frozen mangoes in their smoothies.

Almond milk: While we use whole cow’s milk in our smoothies, unsweetened almond milk is a non-dairy option. I like vanilla ones with added protein (like this) since almond milk on its own is basically almond water (haha).

Coconut water: If I have it on hand, I like to add a little coconut water to my smoothies for a tropical flavor. Beyond adding sweetness, coconut water provides essential electrolytes.

Protein powder: Smoothies are one of the easiest ways to consume a large serving of protein. Whether you prefer plant proteins or opt for collagen or whey, they are ideal for maintaining muscle and satiety. My current favorite is Simply Tera Organic Whey in Bourbon Vanilla.

Maple syrup: I usually don’t like it add sugar, because I find that among all the frozen fruits, smoothies are already quite high in sugar (natural sugar!). But a splash of pure maple syrup enhances the flavor in, say, a seasonal pumpkin pie smoothie. It’s also my go-to if I’m making a smoothie that isn’t sweet at all and I want to sweeten it a little for the kids.

Favorite blender

I have had two Vitamix blenders and now we have the Ascent A3500 serieswhich is his latest and best edition of Vitamix. Just trying to blend spinach in a rental house blender is enough to remind me how amazing it is. Vitamix is. We use ours almost every day.

Some of my favorite smoothie recipes:

What to eat with smoothies for breakfast

When all the macronutrients are taken into account, healthy breakfast smoothies can be a meal replacement in themselves, but I totally understand if you prefer to enjoy your smoothie with a chewy side. I try to consider what food groups or macros I have already covered in my smoothie and complement them with the garnish. So if your smoothie is mostly fruit, pair it with hard-boiled eggs or nut butter toast. Or if you have a mostly green smoothie made with protein, enjoy a muffin on the side. Here are some suggestions!

Avocado toast or banana toast

Start your day by pairing a small smoothie with avocado toast – a classic! Opt for whole wheat bread for added fiber and top it with sliced ​​tomatoes.

Another favorite is this banana toast, with a drizzle of peanut butter and chia seeds for a dose of healthy fats.

Homemade cupcakes

Bake a batch of healthy muffins to enjoy alongside your smoothie. We love these Morning Glory Muffins and these Chocolate Banana Muffins (which are made in the Instant Pot!).


The ideal breakfast food to obtain protein. Here’s my perfect scrambled eggs recipe or some hard-boiled ones on the go. Or if you fancy a big breakfast, try a Scrambled egg sandwich. This Avocado Scrambled Egg Sandwich is one of my favorite savory breakfasts or lunches. You can use whole eggs or whites, whichever you prefer!

Mini Egg Cakes

These mini egg tarts are so simple (only four ingredients!) and easy to eat on the go with a smoothie.

Breakfast charcuterie board

It’s fun, especially if you have company, or maybe you just have a house full of kids who like to graze!
