This is the Breakfast I Eat Almost Every Day

Morning is my favorite time of day. I live for the fresh slate that it provides! I’ve talked about things I do for a peaceful morning in the past, but one thing I haven’t shared is my go-to healthy breakfast. It took me a while to find a breakfast that was quick, flavorful, and would keep me full until lunch. I experimented with protein-rich yogurts, eggs, oatmeal, toast, and more, but I would either feel hungry a few hours later, break out (from the dairy and eggs), or get tired of the taste. When I perfected my smoothie recipe to cover all these bases, I didn’t look back!

Here’s what I love about this smoothie:

The frozen fruit provides a creamy, ice-cream like texture without unnecessary fats or calories

Vegan protein provides 20g of protein, a variety of raw vitamins, and doesn’t cause digestive issues

This smoothie tastes like a healthy milkshake

It keeps me full for a late lunch (1-2pm)

It takes me all of 3 minutes to make

My Nutribullet is incredibly easy to clean and pack

My Staple Recipe:

1 cup frozen strawberries

1 scoop of Plant Fusion Vanilla or Chocolate protein

1 cup of Silk Cashew Milk

Optional: 1/2 banana, spinach, flax/chia seed, spirulina, chlorella

Sometimes I swap the strawberries for other fibrous fruits like blackberries, blueberries, or raspberries. I choose cashew milk because it’s the creamiest and most flavorful. Depending on how much energy I feel I need, I’ll spice it up with add-ons like chia seeds, flax seeds, or some type of leafy green.

I’m allergic to whey and had to turn to vegan options for protein. After experimenting with many, my favorites are Plant Fusion’s chocolate protein and Garden of Life’s grain-free protein.

About 6 months ago, I resurrected my Nutribullet from college and it’s been the best decision! The blender unit is tiny and cleans easily with a quick rinse under the faucet. I have this smoothie 5-6 times a week when we’re at home, leaving one day for a brunch or breakfast out with David or a friend. But honestly, when I don’t have this smoothie, I miss it! I’m addicted and the flavor is so delicious.

What’s your favorite breakfast that keeps you energized in the morning? I’d love to know in the comments.
