I never like to skip my breakfast and so the days when I am super busy; I love making a smoothie myself and carry it on the go – healthy, nutritious and convenient. Exactly, the three words all busy women love when it comes to food. I am happier when I have proper breakfast.
So today I am excited to share my power breakfast recipes with you all, my tribe – The Power Breakfast Smoothies.
You see smoothies are easy to make, hassle free preparations, full of nutrition, very filling and most importantly, incredibly yummy. So here are the recipes to 4 Power Smoothies, that I have experimented with and have found them to be ticking all the right boxes of health, nutrition, taste and time management. Here we go then.
I) Banana & Strawberry Smoothie
Almond Milk + Banana + Strawberry + Blueberry
A very filling smoothie that takes just about 3-4 minutes. The banana strawberry smoothie is just the right kind of boost that your body needs right at the start of the day. Bananas are great for your heart and skin, strawberries boost your immune system, and my favorite…the Vitamin D super ingredient almond milk ensures that you will have a great day ahead.
II) Avocado & Dates Smoothie
Almond Milk + Dates + Avocado + Sunflower Seeds + Cinnamon
I do not think I need to reiterate my love for Avocado. Combine that with locally produced dates, and you have got a mood booster for the day. Avocados are great for your heart; dates are a great source of iron and help in weight loss, whereas the sunflower seeds take care of your essential fatty acid requirements. This smoothie is creamy & thick & filling thanks to the super-combination, and a definitive energy booster.
III) Very Berry Smoothie
Blueberries + Strawberries + Raspberries + Almond Milk
When you have 3 kinds of berries in your smoothie, it cannot be named anything else but for a Very Berry smoothie. You want to wake your body up; then this is the smoothie for you. To say that it is delicious would be an understatement. The first sip of this smoothie and you shall experience a volcano of flavors in your mouth and a plethora of nutrition for your body. Blueberries are great for your heart, the raspberries take charge of your anti-oxidant needs, and of course, the strawberries boost your immune system. Could there be a better start to the day?
IV) Green Morning Smoothie
Almond Milk + Cucumber + Pineapple + Ginger + Cilantro + Basil Leaves
This one is a mega concoction. If you like to start your day with something green, then this one is for you. The basil, cilantro, and ginger make this the best smelling smoothie, whereas the pineapple and the basil leaves give you your dose of anti-oxidants and pump up your immune system; and of course the cucumber – great for your skin and detoxification. In fact, in my opinion, this is the perfect smoothie for the Dubai Summers.
Watch the video and see how quick and easy they are to make.
I must mention that these recipes are my experiments with healthy food, and you can totally add in your elements and make them even better. You can even use coconut milk or rice milk (I avoid soya milk) instead of the almond milk if you like. These smoothies are easy to make, easy to carry, give you the right nutrition and add to the variety. In fact, I often give smoothies to my son, and he loves them.
So ladies hit the smoothies and ensure that there’s never a dull morning again. Do try my recipes and I would love to hear from you and take your feedback. Also, feel free to experiment with my recipes and do share your ideas on how to make them better. What is your favorite smoothie recipe?
