A delicious breakfast smoothie full of energy and nutrients, sure to fill you up until lunchtime!

Hello everyone! How was your Christmas? Did you eat, like, a TON? Ugh, I sure did! Detox is starting early this year.

(Pretty sure it’ll be ending early, too, if we’re honest.)

So here we are with a virtuous smoothie! If you follow me on Instagram, you maaaay have noticed that I like smoothies. I really, really like smoothies.

On weekdays Mr. Veggie makes me my trusty green breakfast smoothie, and on weekends I experiment with new ideas. I’ve made this one a number of times now and I thought it was time to share the love!

This smoothie has everything you need. A very quick microwaved oatmeal provides slow releasing energy – perfect for those who don’t like the texture of oatmeal / porridge, but want to get the health benefits of it. Or those (like me) who are OK with oatmeal / porridge but have trouble eating any solid food early in the morning.

The oatmeal is spiked with vanilla and cinnamon so adds a little something to the flavor, as well as making it thick and filling. You can also throw in your choice of mix-ins (I threw in a chia seeds, maca and chlorella) if you’re a mix-in kind of a person.

Hope you enjoy!
