Best Breakfast Drinks
Take a look at our favorite 25 breakfast drinks. Give them all a try, and your mornings will all start great.
1. Tropical Smoothie
Our Simple Green Moms good morning sunshine smoothie is one of our favorite healthy drinks to make in the morning. It is full of nutritious, tasty ingredients that blend together to make a fruity, refreshing drink.
Bananas, strawberries, and frozen peaches are the main fruits in our smoothie recipe. We blend in coconut milk and a little vanilla extract to make the drink taste even more delicious.
Our breakfast smoothie is sweetened with a touch of honey. Skip the honey if you’d like. The fruit in the drink makes it quite sweet enough. You can also opt to use maple syrup or plain white sugar for a vegan option.
2. Cold Brew Iced Coffee
A nice big iced coffee in the morning is something many people love. This is especially true in the summer when you need a cold coffee to start your day.
We love this cold brew coffee recipe from Downshiftology. Cold brew coffee has more caffeine than regular coffee, making it super energizing. A big glass of iced cold coffee is exactly what you need if you are feeling sleepy or sluggish.
Serve the cold brew coffee with milk and sugar, or just enjoy it as black coffee. It is a great breakfast drink, no matter how you mix it!
3. Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
Orange juice is a classic breakfast drink that everyone loves. This recipe from Archana’s Kitchen will give you all the tips and tricks you need to make incredible, homemade orange juice.
The secret ingredient in this recipe is black salt. A tiny bit of salt helps bring out the natural sweetness of the fruit juice. It also helps your body absorb the vitamins and minerals in the orange juice more readily.
Squeeze your orange juice right before you are ready to drink it. Fruit juices are best when enjoyed as fresh as possible!
4. Homemade Sun Tea
Sun tea is essentially iced tea that is brewed using the heat from the sun. There is no need to boil water, wait for the tea to steep, and then chill the tea. Sun tea is much easier than that!
Simply Recipes will show you how to make incredible sun tea with very little effort. All you need is your favorite tea bags, a bit pitcher of water, and a sunny day!
Sun tea does take a little time to prepare, so be sure to make it in advance. You can make a huge pitcher of sun tea to keep in your fridge, giving you enough for the whole week! A refreshing glass of iced tea in the morning is always a welcoming sight.
5. Dalgona Coffee
Making whipped coffee is a fun way to switch up your morning coffee routine. Dalgona coffee is the classic type of whipped coffee that is easy, tasty, and fun.
