Tip of the Week: Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

When you're pressed for time, whizz up some breakfast goodness.

 

Breakfast is important. We've all heard it before! But it really is. It sets up your taste buds for the day. What you have in the morning can be instrumental in the decisions you make about food for the rest of the day. Ideally, we might have some eggs with spinach and avocado but that's not always possible. 

Some of my favourite tricks is to do a breakfast smoothie to tide you over until you can eat something more solid. It's fantastic for those of you who are rushed in the mornings and struggle to eat anything at all. It's super quick and satiating. 

This is my current go-to recipe. There are SO MANY ways to do it. 

Recipe

  • 40g oats (can be porridge oats)

  • 250ml coconut milk

  • 1 scoop whey isolate protein powder (I like vanilla for this recipe)

  • 40g fresh mango

  • 1 whole fresh passionfruit

  • 1 teaspoon scoop of Pip & Nut almond and coconut butter or your favourite nut butter

  • Sometimes I'll add some rolled flax seed

Top up Nutribullet or blender with ice and whizz it up!

With this recipe the smoothie will work out to about 300-400 calories.

You can add greens powder, spinach, a raw egg, greek yogourt. The options are infinite.

Bish bash bosh and you’re good to go.
