The Ultimate Breakfast Smoothie to Power Up Your Morning

in Eat by

Smoothies are the easiest and fastest way to get all the nutrients you need in a meal in no time, you just toss the ingredients in a blender and one minute later you have a complete meal. But in order for a smoothie to be a nutritional replacement for a full meal it needs to have fats, carbs and protein. This means that blending together two fruits does not actually count as a proper meal replacement, this is why we’re bringing you the ULTIMATE breakfast smoothie with all the macros, nutrients and vitamins that you need for a fully empowered morning.

Every perfect smoothie needs to include the following; a healthy fat, a protein, high-fiber carb and a liquid base.

For our liquid base, we used coconut milk
For the healthy fat, we used UP Nuts
For a good source of fiber & carbs, we used oatmeal and bananas
For protein, we added almonds from the UP bag
To add a powerful flavor punch we added one tablespoon of raw cocoa powder

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 tsp raw cocoa (adjust to taste)
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup UP fruits & Nuts

 

Directions:

 

Add 1 chopped banana

 

Add raw cocoa powder

 

Add 1/2 cup oatmeal

 

Add 1/2 cup UP Raw Nuts & Dried Fruits

 

Add 1 cup coconut milk

 

Blend

 

Serve & Enjoy!
