Custom Breakfast Smoothie (vegan, no added sugar)

Weekend breakfasts at our place are an elaborate affair. Mainly because everyone has their favourites, which they “order” without much hesitation as if they were dining at their favourite cafe. One order of eggs, over-easy with fried toast; an omelette with chorizo and goat’s cheese; a breakfast toastie and a large bowl of Weetbix or cereal with some honey. I sometimes wonder if I am the only at-home-cafe catering this way…?

Having said that Mr Chipconnoisseur is one of the most accommodating breakfast eaters and, now that I think of it, he often swaps out his order of eggs for a quick and delicious breakfast smoothie. Similar to this one, but with a few less crunchy bits inside. To be honest, I prefer the texture of blended oats and nuts in my smoothie, the “bits” actually make it more enjoyable for me.

The basic idea is simple: 1-2 cups of milk of your choice – could be non-dairy such as almond or oat milk, 1 banana, 1/4 of an avocado and 1 tbsp cocoa powder. The rest is upto you. I like to add some rolled oats, LSA, chia seeds, berries, spinach leaves or kale to mine as well.

A super quick and nutritious breakfast drink that can be customised to your liking. Add berries, stone fruit, cherries or other nuts and seeds. Cinnamon and ginger are a great addition too. If you like your smoothies super cold, or want to be a little savvy, buy bananas on special, peel then slice and freeze in zip-lock bags for quick access anytime. Blended on their own or with just a little milk they make a perfect and healthy instand icecream.
