A Nourishing and Portable Breakfast

We like quick and easy breakfasts during the week and if they are portable, that’s even better. That’s why we love smoothies or overnight oats, for breakfast during the week.

These smoothies are 100% plant-based, I don’t use milk or yogurt in my smoothies.  Instead, I use water and avocado for a  nice creamy texture. An added bonus is that the fat from the avocado will keep you feeling full all morning.

How to Make the Best Tasting Super Green Smoothie

You can make a smoothie with any combination of fruits or vegetables that you like. Play around with the ingredients and find your new personal favorite smoothie.

Here are some suggestions to get you started:

Fruit –  Fresh or frozen berries, bananas, peaches, mangoes, oranges pineapple, or any other sweet-tasting tropical fruit.

A few of our favorite fruit combinations are banana and blueberry, mango, orange and pineapple, raspberry and strawberry, and of course dragon fruit and passion fruit.

Vegetables – Green vegetables are optional, but I highly suggest you add them in. They add a touch of earthy flavor and beautiful green color to the smoothie. I like a handful of baby spinach or kale and sometimes toss in chopped-up cucumbers.

Thickener – Depending on the size of the avocado, using up to one-half of an avocado that has been chopped adds a wonderful creamy texture to the smoothie. 

Protein – protein powder, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp hearts, nut butter will add protein to your smoothie which will also keep you feeling full.

A few of my favorite protein and fruit combinations are; raspberry and peanut butter, vanilla protein powder with blueberries and banana, chocolate protein powder with raspberries.  Toss in a tablespoon of flax or chia seeds with the protein powder for an extra dose of omega 3’s.

Liquid –  Filtered water is my first choice, but you can also use dairy milk or nut milk.

Extras – Add fresh herbs like mint, cilantro, basil or cinnamon, vanilla extract or a dash of honey or maple syrup.

Chopped Ice – For a frosty smoothie and it’s optional. If you are using frozen fruit it’s not really necessary, however, the chill the ice adds to a fresh fruit smoothie livens it up.

  1. I haad fallen off the track of better eating. Saw this smoothie recipe and it was the trigger to get back on track. It tastes great. I doubled the batch for an afternoon treat.

  2. MY 15 year old who loves her smoothies tried this with the protein powder (which we have never done), she loved it AND since she doesn’t eat most meats the protein kick was perfect!
