High Fat Breakfast Smoothie


Keeping breakfast simple...

I don't know if you can tell by now but I kind o like to cook. Most the time this isn't an issue but in the morning I like to not think too much and just have a solid meal already chosen for me. This smoothie is it. It packs a bunch of high-quality fats, nutrient dense berries and veggies as well as a plenty of protein. Plus there are almost endless variations. This recipe is from episode 8 of my Day of Eating video series.

Servings: 1

Prep Time: 1 Minute

Cook Time: 5 Minutes

Bulk Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado

  • 100g frozen berries

  • Handful of leafy greens

  • 150g full-fat greek yoghurt

  • 30g protein powder

  • 15g chia seeds

  • 20g coconut flakes

  • 200ml water

  • 1/2 lemon


  • 3-5 drops liquid stevia

  • Pinch of salt



The only real prep required for this recipe is to briefly "cook" the leafy greens. Breaking down the oxalic acid found in greens like spinach and kale actually makes the nutrients more absorbable. To do this, I stuff the greens into a large mug and pour freshly boiled water over the top. Leave the greens to steep for 30-120s, depending on their hardiness, then simply drain the water.


Throw all the ingredients into a blender. Try to place the ingredients in an order so that the tougher ones are closer to the blades to avoid over processing the smoother ingredients like powders and yoghurt.


Simply blitz the ingredients to a texture you like. I kind of like to chew my smoothies so blend them minimally.


Once blended to your preferred texture, simply serve and enjoy. If you're feeling fancy, or just looking for a few likes on Instagram, top with more shredded coconut, chia seeds and a few frozen berries.
