Sure I love a smoothie as much as the next gal but I’m sorry but a glass of pureed fruit just doesn’t cut it for me breakfast-wise. I require a breakkins with a bit more in the way of whole grains, protein and healthy fats. THUS the breakfast smoothie parfait was born.
Make your favourite fruit smoothie but add in some protein powder and then layer in a tall glass with whole grain cereal. Whoof that was a tricky one to explain.
In today’s glass:
- Basic blueberry smoothie (frozen berries blended with silken tofu or yogurt, vanilla almond milk and 1/2 scoop protein powder)
- Puffed wheat
- Millet rice crisp cereal
- 1/2 sliced banana
- Almond butter “whipped cream” (Vegan option)**
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 1/3 cup silken tofu (or thick greek yoghurt)
- 1/4 cup almond milk or more if needed
- sweetener if desired
