My new morning drinkable breakfast! Vegan + Gluten-Free!

My new morning drinkable breakfast! Vegan + Gluten-Free! 🙂

Hey, my lovely one’s, long time no see, hey? This is my first post in April. I haven’t been much around the house lately, because life got in my way & I didn’t have any inspiration either. The days were long & I was in a hurry & enjoyed some foods from other blogs & my easy get to recipes too. Now, I am back in full swing & with lots of new inspiration too,…So, here we go again,…:-)

These smoothies are a great enjoyable drinkable tasty energizing breakfast for my husband & me.

But wait, there’s more!

We like to change our green or not so green smoothies often. We check what we have in our fridge & pantry & make a delicious drinkable breakfast just like these 2 above! You could make these totally raw if you make your own plant-based milk, but I used store-bought oat milk, for convenience. Check this smoothy-to-be, out!

MMM! Vegan & Gluten-Free goodness!

Vegan & Gluten-Free goodness!

Recipe: For 1250 ml = 5 cups


500 ml oat milk, no sugar added

2 juicy oranges, peeled & each cut up into 2

1 teaspoon of vanilla powder

1/4 cup raw cacao nibs

1/2 ripe avocado, peeled & green flesh scooped out with a big spoon

1 large ripe banana, peeled & cut up into larger chunks

1 cup + 1/2 cup of young cleaned spinach leaves + stalks


1. Take your Vitamix & place your ingredients in this order in it. Place the tamper into the fitted lid. Blend on full & high-speed until fully joined, using the tamper to push ingredients into the running blades. Blend for about 15 to 30 seconds max. Taste! It must taste a bit sweet, creamy & chocolately! 🙂 I still like to see my little specs of blended cacao nibs into my GREEN ENERGIZING breakfast! Pour into 2 larger smoothy glasses & enjoy instantly with a big straw, with a loved one! Enjoy!!! 🙂

    this one has me especially curious. Spinach and choc? You have a good sense of taste, so I won’t doubt you. But it’s the first I’ve seen of this flavor combination. Your inspiration has returned full force! 🙂

    Glad you’re back! I think all of us bloggers go through those days where we just need a rest from blogging. We always bounce back with plenty of ideas, though!!

    This smoothie looks amazing!! I really want to make this for breakfast right now but I have no oranges or cacao nibs!! I will have to bookmark it for later. It really does sound soooo yummy.

  5. I’ve never had oat milk, I love oats so I know I would love it. This smoothie is chock full of super foods. What a great way to start the day!
