Superfood Morning Smoothie

Superfood Morning Smoothie

I am what people call a “morning person”. I like to get up early (and by that, I mean 6 am even when I don’t have to go to work), make myself a hot cup of coffee with coconut milk, sit by the window and plan my day.

I am so much more productive at day time than I am after 5 pm. In the evening my body just shuts down and by 9.30 pm I am most of the time, already napping on my couch.

Part of my morning ritual is a good breakfast. For ages nutritionist have been highlighting the importance of eating in the morning, and for me skipping breakfast is just not an option – Intermitting fasting? no no! –

The other morning, I felt like something fresh but nutriscious which could keep me light but give me energy for my morning workout.

I decided to make this strawberry smoothie packed with superfoods:

*chia seeds

*coconut milk or yogurt




Here is how to make it!

Ingredients (serves 1):

  • half of a ripe banana
  • 2/3 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. honey (or agave if vegan)
  • 150 g yogurt or 150 ml coconut milk (if vegan)
  • 100 ml coconut water

Gather all your ingredients

Place them in a blender and process until smooth and creamy

Pour into your glass and enjoy

This is the perfect breakfast on the go! TIP: need more protein, add 1 scoop of natural flavor pea protein powder!
