Our obsession with thick morning smoothies continues. Some people prefer their smoothie thin and drinkable but when it comes to having it as the only breakfast we like to make our morning smoothie slightly thicker. It just feels more like a breakfast when there is little something to chew and you can also use a spoon if you want to.
This berry smoothie is one of our recent favourites. Just a quick prep the night before and you only need 2 minutes in the morning to blend it into a smoothie. We love the combination of coconut and blueberries and the soaked oats and chia seeds give this smoothie its thick, creamy texture.
We often add protein powder into our morning smoothies to have a more balanced breakfast considering it’s usually the only thing we have before lunch (or a sneaky mid morning snack). You could also use coconut milk here instead of almond milk. The reason we go for almond milk is simply because it’s more readily available in our local store. Both almond milk and coconut milk taste really good in this recipe.
Mornings really don’t get much easier (or more delicious) than this. We hope you enjoy this simple breakfast recipe.
- 100g oatmeal
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 300ml almond milk
- 200g blueberries
- 250g soy yoghurt
- 1 scoop vegan protein powder (vanilla flavour)
- Mix the oatmeal, chia seeds and almond milk and put in a fridge overnight (or at least a couple of hours)
- In the morning, put the overnight oats to a blender together with the blueberries, coconut yogurt and protein powder and blend until smooth. Add more almond milk if desired for a thinner consistency.
