green breakfast smoothie 1

Do you ever have those days where you wake up feeling like you are going to totally NAIL healthy eating.  This dairy free green breakfast smoothie is the breakfast for you!  Not only does it nail healthy eating before the day has started, but it tastes like ice-cream, is packed with nutrients, and is alkalising to the body.

A green breakfast smoothie bowl might seem a little strange…but once you try it you will see why I am raving.  Can you tell there is a CUP of spinach in that bowl?  What about wheat grass?  Barley Grass?  Spirullina?  I didn’t think so.


I’ve talked before (here) about my love for green powders, but incase you missed it let me remind you why I love them.  Green powders (i.e. spirullina, barley grass, wheat grass etc) are naturally rich in folic acid, selenium and iron.  Greens are also reported to be alkalising to our bodies, meaning our bodies are more likely to function optimally when alkaline foods are eaten in place of highly acidic foods.

For this recipe I used the GreenTea x50 Instant Green Smoothie.  You can buy the 100g pack online for AU$19.00 (purchase here)

  1. I’m definitely going to have to try the GreenTeaX50 because we’ve been having green smoothies every day this week! The powders sound great! Thanks so much for linking up with our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party! xx

    1. It just makes it super easy to get greens in. I add almost 200g of spinach to my smoothies and it seems like such a waste of good salad spinach, so with a powder I feel like I’m still getting the same amount of vitamins and minerals but the work is already done.

  2. We love green smoothies, but we don’t use powders, perhaps we should? Does the powder have a strong “green” taste? Or does it just taste like yummy vanilla? I have a fussy eater who won’t go near the juice if it “tastes” green! Go figure!

    1. Haha, it definitely ‘tastes green’. I tried it mixed just with water….it was awful. But I promise you that when blended with banana you can not taste it at all. The banana is so sweet and masks any green flavour.

  3. I made a green juice yesterday. I always add wheatgrass to my smoothies and juices. I had wondered if maybe it had gone out of style since I don’t see it mentioned too much in smoothie recipes. Hooray – it’s here. I’m not alone. ha!
    I was dying of thirst at the mall the other day and asked Boost juice if they had any dairy free smoothies. They just swap out yoghurt for sorbet. WHAT? that annoyed me. When I asked if they could swap sorbet they said they’d do it with ice. HA- cheap skates won’t just use more fruit. Oh well.

    1. That’s the best thing about breakfast smoothies! A huge dose of vitamins and minerals to start the day without even realising. Even my son loves the hidden spinach (minus the protein powder). xx
