Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie Bowl

One of my favourite times of the day is waking up in the morning to a delicious and nutritious breakfast, that satisfies my tastebuds, whilst giving my body and mind the nutrition it needs to function well. Though it is even nicer when that breakfast is ready and waiting for you or someone else has lovingly prepared it *hint to my boyfriend*.

Now I am not usually one for opting for a chilled breakfast, but after working on this recipe during the warmer days we have had recently I do believe that this is something I could be converted to! This Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie bowl is totally refreshing, ticking all the right boxes to energise your body and mind at the start of your day.

I must give credit to Motion Nutrition, as their fresh blueberry morning protein powder, as it contains 16g of vegan protein per serving, along with rosehip to give you a natural lift, blueberries to revitalise your skin and an ingredient called ashwagandha that they have dubbed the “queen of stress-free life”.

When I came across Motion Nutrition at the HBC Summit 2019 I was instantly blown away by this innovative brand. They make great quality protein powders and supplements that are created with the focus to enhance physical and mental wellbeing. The protein powders are made exclusively from rich organic food sources, with zero fillers, artificial colours, synthetic flavours and are both vegan and gluten-free!

Not only that by Motion Nutrition are setting the bar even higher with their sustainable packaging! The boxes are made from recycled paper fibres that can then be re-used again to make paper (it’s like an eco-cycle!). Also, they sachets that contain the protein powder are made from wood-pulp, meaning that they can disintegrate in a compost environment.  I can’t rave about this brand enough!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 40g fresh blueberries
  • 2 medjool dates
  • 1/2 serving of blueberry flavoured protein powder
  • 50g  yoghurt (recommend Alpro soya)*
  • 100ml milk*
  • 2 tsp flaxseed

    * Match the type of yoghurt with the type of milk you use. So for instance, if you are using soya yoghurt then use soya milk. It works much better than paired with different flavours!

Method

To be honest, this is not so much as a ‘method’ but more of a recommendation. I prefer my smoothie bowls to have a thick consistency, which is why there are time limits on how long to blend for. Also, this way of making it helps the blender to break the frozen banana down without it being overloaded with other ingredients at the same time.

  • Begin by adding the frozen banana, milk and yoghurt into a blend and blast for around 10 seconds or until the banana has started to break down.
  • Next, add in the remaining ingredients and blend for a further 10-15seconds (depending on your blender) to get a thick creamy texture.
  • Pour into a bowl and serve along with your desired toppings or simply enjoy it on its own!
