When it comes to weekday breakfast, we look for recipes that are both nourishing and quick. Because as much as we want to start off our days on a healthy note, cooking up an elaborate meal first thing in the AM isn’t always realistic. Luckily, these two breakfast recipes by Be Well By Kelly check off both of those boxes! Kelly LeVeque is our go-to gal when it comes to nutritionist-approved fare, and we’re already big fans of her Fab Four smoothies (the ‘Fab Four’ refers to protein, fat, fiber and greens). So today, Kelly is sharing a new favorite cookies ‘n’ cream smoothie recipe, plus a green and glowing kiwi smoothie bowl. (Tip: A smoothie bowl is just as quick to whip up as a regular smoothie, but if you like to sit down and enjoy a real breakfast rather than drinking it on the go, a smoothie bowl can feel more satisfying.)
Cookies ‘n’ Cream Smoothie
When the cravings hit, this blueberry, chocolate smoothie has an Oreo aftertaste that is sure to satisfy while turning off hunger hormones.
- chocolate coconut collagen protein powder
- 1 Tbsp almond butter
- 1 Tbsp flax or chia seeds
- handful of spinach
- 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 ½ cups almond milk
- hemp hearts, to top
Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend to desired consistency. If you use fresh blueberries, add a few ice cubes to cool. Top with hemp hearts.
Kiwi Smoothie Bowl
Green and glowing, this kiwi bowl is loaded with vitamin C and collagen for healthy, radiant skin. Did you know vitamin C is needed to make collagen bioavailable and easy to synthesize into cells internally?
- 1 serving vanilla protein powder
- ¼ cup of coconut yogurt, plus more to top
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
- ¼ cup microgreens, plus more to top
- 1 cup unsweetened nut milk of choice
- ½ kiwi, plus more to top
- ¼ cup ice
- hemp hearts, to top
Place all the ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend to the desired consistency. Pour into a bowl and top with kiwi, microgreens, hemp hearts and coconut yogurt.
