Rise & shine everybody!
Some days I wake up ready to take on the world and motivated to get up and do all of my morning shenanigans before work, and some days… not so much… I’ll be hitting snooze way too frequently and leaving myself with the absolute bare minimum amount of time to get ready. Either way we all know that having a healthy breakfast is the best way to get your body going and this Blueberry smoothie is exactly that! The best part is that it only takes a few minutes!
This has been my go to smoothie for AGES because it is just so easy!
Sometimes when i’m feeling extra naughty in the morning I’ll switch up the milk for chocolate almond milk instead (words can’t describe how amazing this tastes when I do this!!).
Obviously there are many ways you can enjoy your smoothie but most people tend to opt for a smoothie bowl or a smoothie drink, I personally much prefer a thicker smoothie bowl that I can eat with a spoon, but if you prefer a thinner more drink like smoothie, then just omit the Ice cubs and add a little more milk until you get to the consistency that you love!
You will need:
- 1 cup of frozen blueberries
- 1 Tablespoon of chia seeds
- 1/4 Cup Rolled oats
- 1 Tablespoon of honey
- 1- 1.5 cups of unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
- 3 ice cubes (optional – skip the ice cubes and for a thinner consistency)
- Cacao Nibs
- Chia Seeds
- Fresh blueberries
- Drizzle of honey.
Pop in all of the smoothie ingredients into your blender (any blender will do).
I usually put it all in the following order: Blueberries, Rolled oats, Chia Seeds, Ice Cubes, Honey, Milk & Vanilla Essence!
Blend for a minute!
Depending on how thick you are making your smoothie, you may need to give the blender a little tap here and there while it is doing it’s thaang to make sure that all of the smoothie is blended nicely.
Add your toppings!
I like to put my cacao nibs and chia seeds in straight lines (… for no reason other than presentation, I mean c’mon, a girl has got to get that perfect insta pic, amiright ladies?!)
Then I will drizzle over with some honey if I want it to be a little sweeter.
Until next time,
Love, Angela xx.
