Super Breakfast Smoothie

0 Comments

We love smoothies, especially for breakfast, as they are a great way of getting loads of good stuff in easily, without having to do too much chewing.

This quick and easy recipe is a great starting point, but you can easily adapt it to your preferences or to what you have in the cupboard. The following will make 2 good sized glasses, so you can adjust if it's just one of you, or keep it in the fridge for later in the day.

super breakfast smoothieIngredients

  • 1 Banana
  • 2 cups Mixed Berries
  • Handful Raw Cacao Nibs
  • 1tsp Maca powder
  • 1tsp Rosehip powder
  • 1tsp Kelp powder
  • 1/2 - 1 pint Hemp milk

Method

Stick all the ingredients in a blender and fire it up until smooth. Simple as that!

Some options

You can adjust how fluid your smoothie is by adding more or less hemp milk.

We like a bit of bite to our smoothies, so use the raw cacao nibs as they are, but if you prefer the easy life, then we sell a handy raw cacao nib grinder. Alternatively you could use raw cacao powder.

Fresh berries are best and with summer coming we'll soon be out collecting loads and freezing them. But if you don't have fresh you can usually buy bags of frozen berries, which also make your smoothie nicely chilled.

Nutrition
