Recipe: For 2 large breakfast smoothies! = 1000 ml = 4 cups!


500 ml water

3 handfuls fresh rocket leaves ( arugula )

2 large frozen bananas

1 tablespoon of raw maca powder


1. Take your Vitamix & add all ingredients in this order in it, blend on high & full speed for at least 15 to 30 seconds, using your tamper to push the ingredients into the running blades. Taste! It will taste a bit peppery strong because of the rocket leaves & a bit sweet & smooth because of the frozen bananas. The added maca powder adds a touch of malty flavour!  Pour into lovely smoothy glasses & drink straight away with a big colourful straw! Best enjoyed with a loved one! ;)

These are very nutritious smoothies too! Enjoy them, my beloved friends! ;) xxx

  1. I had never heard arugula called rocket leaves before! But I see why (because of the peppery flavor)! This looks delicious!

    Hoi Sophie,
    It is a lovely tasty smoothie! Nice presentation, too.

  7. Sally says:

    Er what’s maca powder? We get loads of lovely fresh local organic rocket here so always looking for something to do with it.

    • Sophie says:

      I put a link in my ingredient list to it but will explain it here too!

      Raw Maca Power is a superfood. Maca is a herbaceous plant native to the high Andean Mountains of Bolivia and Peru. It is one of the only food plants in the world able to thrive at such a high altitude. Maca, and more specifically the root of the plant, has a long history as a superfood.

      The maca root was prized throughout the Incan empire for its adaptogenic-like qualities that enable it 1/ to nourish and balance the body’s delicate endocrine system,
      2/ and to help cope with stress.
      3/ It also energizes naturally, without the jitters and crashes of caffeine,
      4/ and it can aid in reproductive function,
      5/ helping to balance hormones and
      6/ increase fertility.
      7/ It is good for your libido.
      8/ It also has a lot of vitamins in it, like vitamines B1, B2 & C.

      So, start using it & add it to your daily smoothies or vegetable smoothies. I add 1 tablespoon per time. You don’t taste it in my smoothy,….

    especially loving the glasses and straws!

  9. What a wonderful smoothie recipe!

  10. Norma Chang says:

    I too did not know what maca is, thanks for introducing.

  11. Vanessa says:

    Yum! Nice job as usual Sophie. I love that these have arugula in them as I’ve never tried a smoothie with arugula! I’ll have to add some in my next smoothie batch!

  12. Tammy says:

    That is my breakfast at least 5 days a week.

  13. Barbara says:

    Not sure about the arugula, Sophie, but if you say it’s good, I’ll try it.

  14. Sophie this is the perfect recipe for what we all need right now! :D I think I overloaded on sweets and buttery food over the break!

  15. Rika says:

    These are lovely and filling breakfast smoothies – especially in colorful glasses with straws! I’ve never used rocket in my smoothies – does it give a bit of spicy flavor? x Rika

  16. Love the idea of adding rocket to a smoothie!

  17. Oooh – I need to add a handful of arugula to our next smoothie! I’ll bet that peppery bite is wonderful.

  18. Carolyn Jung says:

    Just looking at that makes me feel energized already. ;)

  19. Sarah Kim says:

    Just discovered your blog through another blog, and I absolutely love this! I actually just bought my first blender yesterday, so I’m going to have to try this out!

    Keep up the good work! <3 :)

    Oooh how I am missing my smoothies and juices right now!! It’s been over two weeks without one! Okay that’s a lie…I did manage to buy a fresh pressed juice once. But I brought my NutriBullet with me and soon I hope I have a kitchen to make a lovely smoothie like this in!

  22. uberdish says:

    I love arugula in salads, but have never even thought of making a smoothie using this green. I usually always choose kale, spinach, parsley….gotta try this! Looks yummy and I Iove maca, too!
