Super Healthy Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

Low carb smoothie recipe - almond milk, chia seeds, banana, berries

Super Healthy Breakfast Smoothie

This healthy breakfast recipe is based on the smoothie recipe from Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Everyone who loves breakfast should own this cookbook - I use it a lot.

This super smoothie recipe has become a big part of breakfast for me and my children. It's a quick & easy, healthy low-carb breakfast, no cooking required, tastes divine, and keeps me satisfied until lunch time.

Of course, growing children need carbs and calories. I give mine healthy breakfast foods like granola, pancakes, or cornbread to go with the smoothie.

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth

Chia seeds give this recipe a lot of calcium and omega-3s without any of the yucky flavor of ground flax seeds; about 175 mg of calcium and 1225 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per serving!

A high speed blender works best for making a smooth puree quickly, but an ordinary blender or hand held blender stick will do the job - it'll just take longer and you'll have a chewier smoothie.
