The first meal of the day is the most important. It sets the energy level for the rest of your day. There’s nothing worse than stuffing yourself with a high-carb first meal and hitting a brick wall from a carb crash before your day has even begun.
Whether you have breakfast first thing in the morning or you’re an intermittent faster and have your first meal later on in the day– this Vitamix Power Breakfast Smoothie recipe will ensure you start your first meal off right. This Power Breakfast Smoothie will keep you full and satisfied until your next meal.
The base of this Vitamix smoothie recipe is a non-dairy milk with a package of instant oatmeal blended with healthy fats from chia, flax, and pumpkin seeds. A few cups of greens from kale or spinach and frozen fruits gives your body a good kick of vitamins and minerals.
Ingredients and Substitutions
Non-Dairy Milk: I use soy milk but this Vitamix smoothie recipe will work with any dairy or non-dairy milk. Try different non-dairy milk alternatives like almond milk or oat milk to see what you like.
Cinnamon: This is optional to give your Vitamix smoothie another dimension of flavour. Another option here is to use a flavoured packaged instant oatmeal like cinnamon and apple. The subtle cinnamon flavour is great in this Power Breakfast Smoothie.
Chia/Flax/Pumpkin Seeds: Use what seeds or nuts that you have available. Some other substitutions could be sunflower seeds, almonds, or hemp hearts.
Medjool Date: This is a great natural sweetener and very useful to have on hand. If you don’t have any handy, be sure to stock up on some next time you’re at the grocery store. You can use a tablespoon or two of honey as a natural sweetener.
Frozen Kale/Spinach: Use whatever frozen or non-frozen veggies that you have. Using frozen veggies will help make you smoothie thicker in consistency.
Frozen Banana/Pineapple: Some other great fruits would be mango or peaches.
Keep Organized: Keep all your seeds readily available in glass pint jars. They’ll be easier to sort through than an assortment of random bags holding nuts and seeds.
Make a Thicker Smoothie: With a powerful Vitamix, you can use more frozen ingredients to make a smoothie that is thicker in consistency.
More Protein: Looking for more protein in your diet? Add a small scoop of vanilla protein powder into your smoothie.
