I’ve never been a huge fan of eating breakfast because I feel like it makes me hungry the rest of the day. While I still don’t love having breakfast, with the amount I work out in the morning I know it’s important to have something that is not only healthy but also filling. Hence, this amazing breakfast smoothie that also helps get you a little caffeine boost too while being under 250 calories.
I know what you are thinking, I’ve tried this all before and it’s just not my thing. I know, I was the same way. I wanted to love breakfast smoothie, especially oatmeal based ones, but I just couldn’t find one that had the right flavor or texture to make me want to have it more than once (and usually just finishing it was a struggle). This smoothie is not like that at all.
This smoothie starts with cold brew coffee that will help keep you energized all morning long, add a frozen banana to give you not only loads of nutritional value, but also that creamy smooth texture that makes this smoothie amazing. Add some cashew milk (or any other milk you like, I choose cashew for the low flavor profile and ridiculous low calorie count), and blend with oatmeal and chia seeds to keep you full all morning long. What else could you ask for in a smoothie?
- 1 lg banana frozen
- 4 oz cold brew coffee
- 4 oz cashew milk unsweetened
- ¼ cup oatmeal quick cook or old fashioned
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- In a blend-ble container, add banana, coffee, cashew milk, oatmeal, and chia seeds. Make sure to add chia seeds last or they will stick to the container and not blend properly, giving you a grainy texture in your smoothie. Blend well and enjoy!
