The morning marathon is no joke, and if you’re anything like me, you’d give up breakfast just to sleep an extra 10-15 minutes. While extra shuteye is welcome, it often translates to not having enough time to enjoy a healthy, wholesome breakfast and a cup of warming (and emotionally obligatory) coffee. Luckily, you can get the best of both worlds. The perk of smoothies is that they take only a minute or two to whip up. Better yet, they can also step in for your morning caffeine kick.

The following coffee smoothie recipes are vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, and full of fiber, protein, and brain-boosting nutrition. Enjoy!
