Holiday Breakfast Smoothie

I've been making this smoothie combination for breakfast for the last few months and I absolutely adore it - I just can't get enough! It's packed with B-vitamins, fibre, protein and carbohydrate to keep you going through the morning bursting with energy.

I add the ingredients listed below to my Nutri-bullet in the order shown as it tends to blend better this way. I like my smoothies ultra thick so I don't add much milk which means I need to stop the bullet and give everything a good stir mid-way through blending a couple of times. But trust me, it's worth it for the ice-cream like consistency! I eat all of my super thick smoothies with a spoon, it's the best way to enjoy them.

Holiday Breakfast Smoothie

  • 1 banana, sliced into rounds and frozen (this makes the smoothie thick)

  • 1/3 cup almond milk (or cow or soy milk)

  • 1 heaped Tbspn cacao powder

  • 1 heaped Tbspn crunchy peanut butter (use good quality peanut butter such as Pic's)

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 2 large handfuls kale leaves, washed

  • Topping to serve: Toasted nuts and seeds (I like almonds, walnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds and chia seeds)

If I have frozen blueberries around sometimes I'll add in a handful at the same time as the frozen banana rounds which turns the smoothie into a delicious deep purple blueberry and cacao smoothie.

When I have fresh blueberries in the house, I'll simply add a handful to the crunchy topping as shown in the picture below. The burst of a sweet blueberry when you get one is just delicious!
