Smoothies are one of my favourite breakfasts.
It’s what I have during the week to start my day right, and it keeps me full and happy until lunchtime (which is key, as I’m horrible when I’m hangry!) I used to have full blown breakfasts and sometimes be super hungry by lunchtime, even if I often felt full after my breakfast. With smoothies though, I feel they nourish me more and I can keep on going for longer without having to reach for a mid-morning slump snack. Love ’em, and love ’em even more when they mean I can have dessert and chocolate for breakfast!
One of my favourite things about this smoothie (besides the flavour) is how full of goodness it is! Since they’re so many delicious flavours going on, the spinach goes by unnoticed, so if you’re new to the whole green smoothie thing, then this is most definitely going to suit you!
We’ve also got cacao, which is an amazing superfood and as it has (some) caffeine and is full of antioxidants. The lucuma and mesquite powders are a superfoods from Peru. Mesquite has a caramel-like taste (so yum!) and is high in calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc, as well as the amino acid lysine. Lucuma is known as the Gold of the Incas (need I say more?) and is high in fibre, vitamins, and minerals and has a citrusy flavour.
So what I’m basically saying is, I’m in love with smoothie, and I know you will be too!
PS – In case you’re wondering, since I’m currently living in Sydney, I get all my superfoods from Loving Earth!
