My Breakfast Smoothie

Today I want to share my favorite breakfast smoothie with you...

... I have this smoothie every morning. Sometimes I just have a little one and I have something else for breakfast on top, sometimes I have a huge one and nothing else. It gives me all the energy I need in the morning and it fills me up with loads of nutrients :) 

For my breakfast smoothie I use:

1-6 bananas (depending on how much smoothie I want)
Puffed quinoa
Puffed amarant
(sometimes I also use oats, or cooked quinoa or puffed rice or cooked rice... depending on what I have and what I feel like)
A handful of almonds
A handful of dates 
Some cocoa nibs
Some chokeberry powder
(sometimes I leave away the chokeberry powder and sometimes I use non-sugar cocoa powder)
Some of my vitamin b12 drops
Water - of course

I just blend everything together in my highspeed blender and I end up with the most delicious, smooth, creamy, healthy and filling smoothie ever. The grains give me loads of energy, the dates give a sweet flavor, the alomds give the creamyness, the cocoa nibs and the aronia powder add some extra nutrients. Perfection!

I love this smoothie so much that it is the first thing I am thinking about when I wake up in the morning... and sometimes I have another in the afternoon because I am craving it so bad. 

Make sure to use only really ripe (spotty) banans for your smoothie, cause otherwise it will not be as creamy and sweet - and not as good ;)

Do you like smoothies for breakfast? If you do - you should really try this one!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Sending much love!

  5. Hmm, smoothies mag ich auch, mach sie mir aber irgendwie nie richtig...wenn ich überreife Bananen habe, werden es irgendwie immer Bananenpancakes! :-)

  6. So.. so violet ** I have to try it!

  7. Liebe Larissa,
    ja, nicht nur, dass er so wunderbar lila ist, macht Deinen Smoothie für mich sehr attraktiv, auch sonst scheint er ganz nach meinem Geschmack zu sein :) Ein tolles komplettes aber auch teilweise Frühstück. Einen Smoothie zum Frühstück gibt es bei mir nie, allerdings trinke ich am Nachmittag immer in der Arbeit einen. Wobei der sicher nicht so gesund ist wie Deiner. Danke für Dein Rezept, falls ich jemals doch noch zu einem Blender kommen sollte, dann werde ich es auf jeden Fall ausprobieren.
    Schönes Wochenende <3
    Liebe Grüße von Rena

  9. I love smoothies from time to time, but I consider it to be a spot of lunch than breakfast. Well, it depends!
    Thank you for the great recipe, I will definitely try:)
    Have a good start to your week!

  10. That looks so delicious and its heathly too
    Great recipe

  11. I recently decided to eat more plant based diet. I must say, smoothies are always filling and easier to make when you're busy running for work every morning. This looks delicious!

    You're such a beauty!
