New Recipe: Breakfast Antioxidant Smoothie

I often get asked how a smoothie for breakfast can keep me full until 2pm. Try this – it’s the nutrient density, balance of macronutrients and the abundance of good fats that makes it work. 


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • ¼ cup canned coconut cream, preferably organic
  • ¼ avocado
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1 frozen zucchini, optional
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 30g vanilla or chocolate protein powder(e.g. Bare Blends WPI)
  • 1/3-1 tray ice


  1. Add water and chia seeds to the blender and let sit for 10 minutes for the chia seeds to go to work.
  2. Add coconut cream, avocado, greens, raspberries and cinnamon and blend well.
  3. Add protein powder and ice and blend until thick but smooth. Add more ice for a thicker smoothie.
  4. Pour into a jar and transport with you as required. Enjoy.
