Having a green, alkaline smoothie for breakfast is just awesome. It’s packed with nourishing goodies, and it makes you feel great – BUT – it doesn’t always last until lunch and you can easily fall into the mid-morning snack trap…
This hugely alkaline, super-filling smoothie ticks all of the boxes: nutrients, flavour AND satiety (i.e. you feel fuller for longer).
Combining the nourishment from the greens, fibre, protein and fats it’s the perfect combination to keep your happy and hunger-free from breakfast until lunch – meaning this is the ultimate 5-minute breakfast to fit into your busy schedule.
The “Fill-Me-Up-Until-Lunch” Alkaline Smoothie
2 Handfuls of baby spinach leaves
2 Handfuls of kale, watercress or other green leaf
1/2 Cup of almonds (soaked overnight)
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp almond butter
200ml of almond milk (unsweetened)
200ml filtered water
- Soak the almonds overnight or for at least 4 hours (unless you’ve got a Vitamix or other high powered blender, and then this step is optional)
- Simply blend the ingredients together, starting with the avocado, greens and liquids to form a base, before putting everything else in – except the chia
- Once it’s all blended, stir through the chia seeds and then wait for 2 minutes for the chia to do it’s thing!
Enjoy and let me know how it works for you!
