Breakfast Berry Blend

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day. The smell of freshly brewed coffee, flaky pastries, fresh bread and homemade spreads, muesli…all the delicious things I could happily eat every single day of my life. But let’s be honest, reality often has a different breakfast in store for you!

When I’m in a time crunch, between early morning gym sessions and lectures, smoothies are an absolute lifesaver. I chuck everything into my vitamix, give it a quick blend and drink up whilst getting ready for the day. Most of the ingredients in the smoothie, like the banana, yoghurt, chia seeds or oats are all things I would eat in form of overnight oats. This smoothie just allows me to mix things up {quite literally}. This option is especially great, if like me, you’re not properly hungry after hitting the gym, but you still need something to keep you going.

The ingredients I add will vary, depending what I have on hand that day. From time to time I’ll throw in a scoop of protein powder, though this is not a daily routine. I recently found hemp protein in my parent’s kitchen, which I used for the purpose of this recipe. Another beautiful addition to any smoothie is maca powder. I’ve been feeling really  tired lately {a side effect that comes with dissertation research and writing}, so am hoping that by adding maca to smoothies, my energy levels will increase.

    I love this pretty breakfast! I use maca daily and love it—a real game-changer for the hormones! When you add it to yogurt, I find the probiotics, protein, and hormone benefits from the maca really do wonders for a healthy mind and body!
