Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Recipe
Now that the weather is warming up in Australia, I switch to having a breakfast smoothie every day, which I prepare the night before to save time in the morning. I also love a smoothie for a meal on a go, for when I am on the train, or bus, I am all for the super convenient, plus it is a nice little sweet hit in the morning.
It is important when I am putting together a smoothie, for it to include protein, for my muscles and to keep me fuller longer. I also use some good fat such as coconut oil or flaxseed oil. If I am going to be on the road I just take it with me. If I am going to be at home I will just have the smoothie base then I will have it as a smoothie bowl and put nuts and seeds on top, it is amazing! So satisfying and tasty at the same time. This recipe is both clean, healthy and vegan.
Here are some of the pics of smoothie bowls I have prepared earlier…
Breakfast Smoothie Recipe:
-20g Protein- I use the chocolate one from RAW Amazonia Co
-1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
-1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
-2 tablespoon chia seeds
-1 tablespoon coconut oil
-1/2 tablespoon raw cacao
-Mixed berries, I usually use Raspberries and blueberries.
Blend and serve!
If I make it into a smoothie bowl I put the chia seeds, protein, banana, cacao and coconut oil, and blend. The rest I put on as my toppings.
Also another tip is I wait an hour before blending and drinking, this allows enough time for the chia seeds to swell and makes the smoothie become thicker, plus this is better for your digestion.
