Vanilla Breakfast Smoothie

02 February 2015

This smoothie is the perfect combination of low GI carbohydrates and healthy fats to power you up for a full day!

Serving Size: 1

Prearation Time: 6 minutes


1 peeled frozen banana chopped into quarters ( if you have over-ripe bananas, instead of throwing these away, simply peel, place in an airtight container and store in the freezer for when you have a smoothie craving).

½ cup Coconut milk (or milk of choice) – Shogun coconut milk is a great choice as it contains no thickeners or artificial ingredients. Available at most supermarkets.

1 tbsp. natural sweetener of choice (Xylitol/ stevia/raw honey) – these are all available at any health store

Vanilla extract – I use Nomu, which is available at most supermarkets

1 tbsp. macadamia nut butter – I use nature’s choice which is available at any health store

1 scoop natural protein powder

1 tbsp. Cinnamon


4 crushed walnuts

2 tsp. desiccated coconut

4 large strawberries


Step 1:

Create smoothie base:
Combine frozen bananas, coconut milk (milk of choice), and natural sweetener into food processer and blend until mixture is thick, creamy and ice cream-like.

Step 2:
Add macadamia nut butter, cinnamon and vanilla extract to mixture and blend for 2 minutes, until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
In order to maintain thickness take care not to over blend.

Step 3:
Pour smoothie mixture into a medium sized glass jar.

Serving Suggestion

Top with crushed walnuts, fresh strawberries and desiccated coconut. You can also use this mixture as a decadently thick topping over health muffins.
