I decided to create this Morning Berry Booster smoothie as I was searching for a breakfast smoothie that was full of nutrients, was rich in healthy fats to keep me full and that was also enough of a smoothie to satisfy me until lunch.
I also wanted one that would help repair my muscles after my morning workout and refuel me for my day. Not too much to ask really (haha).
And that’s how my Morning Berry Booster was created.
It’s quickly become my favourite way to start the day as it’s light enough to have first thing in the morning. It always fills me up and surprisingly keeps me going until lunch.
INGREDIENTS AND DIRECTIONS
- 1 ½ cups of water or nut milk
- 1 cup of organic berries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 scoop of Go Good Vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp of nut butter (I like almond or peanut)
- 1 banana
- ¼ avocado
- 1 tsp of matcha powder
- 1 tsp of MCT Oil for energy
- ¼ tsp of cinnamon to help balance your morning blood sugar levels
- 1 scoop of Go Good Cacao and Maca Energy Booster
To your blender add all your smoothie ingredients and any extra boosters and then blitz for 60 seconds or until smooth and creamy.
Drink immediately or pour into a glass jar for later.
This smoothie makes 2 serves. So, what I like to do is have some in the morning and the rest a little later as an afternoon snack. You could even stir in a few teaspoons of chia seeds or rolled oats for the afternoon drink to make it into a delicious chia bircher bowl. A great way to use it up, while also keeping things exciting.
To make this, simply stir in your oats and chia seeds into your smoothie jar, top with any extra fruit or nuts and then let it set for a few minutes. This will last really well in the fridge so you could easily whip it up in the morning for later that day.
