High Fat Breakfast Smoothie

Keeping Breakfast Simple…

I don’t know if you can tell by now but I kind o like to cook. Most the time this isn’t an issue but in the morning I like to not think too much and just have a solid meal already chosen for me. This smoothie is it. It packs a bunch of high-quality fats, nutrient dense berries and veggies as well as a plenty of protein. Plus there are almost endless variations. This recipe is from episode 8 of my Day of Eating video series.

Servings: 1
Prep Time: 1 Minute
Cook Time: 5 Minutes

Bulk Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado
  • 100g frozen berries
  • Handful of leafy greens
  • 150g full-fat greek yoghurt
  • 30g protein powder
  • 15g chia seeds
  • 20g coconut flakes
  • 200ml water
  • 1/2 lemon

Spices:

  • 3-5 drops liquid stevia
  • Pinch of salt

Method:

The only real prep required for this recipe is to briefly “cook” the leafy greens. Breaking down the oxalic acid found in greens like spinach and kale actually makes the nutrients more absorbable. To do this, I stuff the greens into a large mug and pour freshly boiled water over the top. Leave the greens to steep for 30-120s, depending on their hardiness, then simply drain the water.

Throw all the ingredients into a blender. Try to place the ingredients in an order so that the tougher ones are closer to the blades to avoid over processing the smoother ingredients like powders and yoghurt.

Simply blitz the ingredients to a texture you like. I kind of like to chew my smoothies so blend them minimally.

Once blended to your preferred texture, simply serve and enjoy. If you’re feeling fancy, or just looking for a few likes on Instagram, top with more shredded coconut, chia seeds and a few frozen berries.

  1. In your meals I see you put in protein powder, would you have a suggestion on what to substitute protein powder with?? I personally don’t use protein powder..

    Thanks,
    Alvaro

  2. This is my breakfast of choice, usually drunk around 12 noon. Haven’t tried it with Avocado though but will as I’m looking at more ways to introduce it into my diet.

    My version consists of oats soaked in milk overnight, Greek yoghurt, spinach, frozen berries, coconut flakes and vanilla essence to taste. Also put some flax, chia seed, apple and cinnamon but not overly keen on their addition, just trying to use them up!

    Keep up the good work, I’ll give your recipe a go and see how it compares.

    1. Hey Andrew, sounds like a pretty awesome breakfast already. Avocado adds a creamy flavour and texture but is also very satiating πŸ™‚

    1. Hey Sarai,

      You could swap to a dairy-free alternative like coconut yoghurt or just use coconut milk to add that creaminess in there πŸ™‚

  3. Hello, can you add an all in 1 supplement like cyclone instead of protein powder or will this make the nutritional values wrong?
    Thanks Ryan
