Low-Sugar, High-Protein Breakfast Smoothie Bowl

February 5, 2019
A smoothie with no fruit?! Yup, you got that right! Let go of the belief that smoothies need to be jam-packed with fruit and can only be eaten during the summer – Not to show off, but I'm high-key thrilled to have come up with this recipe...it's as nutrition-packed as can be, tastes amazing, AND is ready in a couple of minutes tops. What else could you ask for?

Directions

1. Chop up the carrot, red beet, zucchini and ginger and put them in a blender (alternatively, you can use a handheld blender!). Add the Oat Milk and blend until smooth. 2. Next, add in the rest of the ingredients (white beans, oats, chia seeds, lemon juice, brazil nut and superfood greens powder (if using)), and blend again. 3. Pour in a bowl, top with your favourite toppings and dig in! It's a perfect and ultra-fillling breakfast, even for busy weekdays. Notes: Feel free to switch up some of the ingredients if you like: Sometimes I've used frozen cauliflower instead of zucchini, left the red beet out, added some spinach or 1/2 avocado for extra creaminess...the choice is yours! For a unique twist, try adding in a little spirulina, 1 drop of peppermint essential oil, and top with cacao nibs - it's like a mint chocolate chip bowl of heavenly vegan goodness!
