Dairy-Free Healthy Breakfast Smoothies

Dairy-Free Healthy Breakfast Smoothies

I love smoothies and if you’ve read my Blending Versus Juicing blog post then you’ll know why..

1) Smoothies contain the whole fruit/veg and so are high in fibre, they release their energy slowly and are super filling.

2) You can add milk, yoghurt or whey protein to boost the calcium/protein content.

3) They taste sweet, even when you add green veg (check out my green monster smoothie!).

4) They are quick to make and all you need is a blender.

5) There is much less cleaning up to do in comparison to juicing and there is less waste too!

Smoothies make the perfect sit-down breakfast in warm weather, or if you’re short of time you can drink them on the go. Below I’ve blogged three of my favourite dairy-free smoothie recipes so that even people who can’t have lactose can enjoy them too!

P.S. I always get asked what blender I use and lately I’ve been using the Tribest Personal Blender 250 which I reviewed [here].

Energy Burst Smoothie

Ingredients: 1 small frozen banana, 1/2 small tin of drained pineapple (or 1/4 of a fresh pineapple), a large handful of spinach, 1 kiwi & 1/4 tsp Power Greens (optional).

Power Greens is a blend of spirulina, wheat grass juice powder, cholera powder, barley grass juice powder and brassica blend powder.. they provide high levels of nutrients, such as vitamin K, beta-carotene, vitamin C and iron. As I say in the video above though, they aren’t needed for a healthy diet but can give your smoothie a little ‘boost’ if added!

Greens Smoothie

Method: Add all of the ingredients into a blender & blend!

Nutrition Stats: 170 Calories, 1.1g fat, 47g carbs, 3.2g protein. 



I really hope you enjoy making these smoothies.. which is your favourite?!
