Berry Breakfast Smoothie

In Breakfast, Drinks, Recipes by MurielLeave a Comment

My best days are the ones that start with a smoothie. Really, I function so much better with this boost of nutrients! (In winter, I chase it with hot tea so my body temperature doesn’t take a dip.)

What’s in it?

  • Frozen banana for a creamy base (don’t skip freezing the banana – frozen banana chunks are a mainstay in my freezer);
  • Strawberries for nostalgic childhood flavours;
  • Blueberries for their antioxidants; turmeric for anti-inflammatory powers;
  • Oats for sustained energy;
  • Flax for Omega-3s;
  • Peanut butter for extra protein;
  • Dates for extra sweetness (skip this if the fruit is sweet enough for you);
  • Soy milk for creamy richness (or just use water).
