Healthy Organic Breakfast Drink

organic fruit smoothie

A healthy, organic breakfast drink can be a great way to jump-start your morning. There are basically two kinds of drinks; those meant to go with breakfast foods and those meant to replace breakfast foods. Always remember to choose 100 percent organic items over all natural products. Both are advertised as "healthy" choices, but there is a difference.

Organic Drinks

Sometimes it is easy to get into a rut and have the same thing everyday. There are a lot of organic drinks that you can have with your breakfast. Adding a little variety can be as easy as spending some time browsing the shelves at your natural food store.

Commercially Made Juices

Several companies make organic juice and juice blends. Consider some of the following:

Knudsen

  • Lemon Echinacea Ginger Juice Blend
  • Coconut Pineapple
  • Black Current
  • Goji Berry
  • Yumberry

Apple and Eve

Lakewood Organic

  • Acai Amazon Berry
  • Black Dragon
  • Blue Dragon
  • Fruit Garden Purple Harmony

  • Fruit Garden Green & Red Fusion

There are hundreds of other brands and varieties available. Once you know what juices are your favorites, you can blend several of them to come up with your own easy organic breakfast drinks.

Homemade Juices

If you have a juicer or a good blender, you can make your own juice from organic fruit and vegetables.

Choose organic fruit and vegetables that are very fresh. Just follow your manufacturer's instructions for juicing. Use any pulp that is left as an addition to quick breads and other food items that you are making.
