If breakfast and I had a Facebook relationship, it would say; "it's complicated". I love the energy eating a big breakfast gives me, but I also don't have an appetite at all before nine. Okay, so if there are croissants involved, I can make an exception. But otherwise - I eat breakfast just because I have to.
With that being said, smoothies are a great breakfast for all of us "breakfast haters" out there. And by now you probably know about my love for smoothies. They're easy to chuck down, and if made right, they can also be very filling. This smoothie can be done the night before - making it even easier to drink on-the-go in the morning. The oats, avocado and yoghurt make it filling enough to last you until lunch.
INGREDIENTS: serving 2
- 1 dl blueberries
- 1 dl rasberries
- 1/2 avocado
- 3 dates
- 1 handfull of baby spinach
- 1 big spoon of Turkish yoghurt
- 1/2 dl rolled oats
- 1 small handfull of unsalted cashews
- A sprinkle of chia seeds
- Oats or almond milk
Toss all the ingredients into a blender and fill up with oats or almond milk until the blender is full. I like to top off my smoothie with something crunchy, so here I've added raw cacao bites and some shredded coconut - very yummy indeed!
