Breakfast Power Smoothie

Breakfast Power Smoothie
Are you torn over what to have in the morning? Do you want a hit of caffeine to get you going, or do you want to have a health-packed smoothie full of nutrients and vitamins to start your day?

It’s a tough choice, and if like me you hanker after a cuppa joe, feeling guilty, this recipe could solve all that.

It’s a smoothie which contains healthy coconut water, good for this ol’ electrolytes, a banana, bundled full of potassium and baby spinach kicking and screaming with iron.

The added bonus here however is the addition of a shot of coffee. Strange I know, but the flavours of all these ingredients together work well, giving the smoothie a depth of flavor which is quite unique.

For the coffee I used a single serve stick of microground instant coffee. I’m finding these ‘sticks’ of coffee harder to come by these days, I think the manufacturers are all phasing them out, but a spoonful of microground instant would work the same.

I popped all the ingredients into my Froothie Optimum 9400 blender, and whizzed the ingredients together. The coffee is immediately blended into the drink due to the sheer power of the blender.

This drink is also perfect if you are suffering from a hangover – it gives you a caffeine boost and also cleanses the body with all of the nutrients.
