Hi guys, I’ve been feeling a little bit stuck in a rut with my smoothie choices lately and I wanted to try and mix things up a little. I tend to have smoothies for breakfast far more often in summer and some variety had never hurt anyone. As I’m sure you’ve noticed most of my smoothie bowls tend to be berry based, so I’m trying to step out of my comfort zone with this mango vanilla breakfast bowl.
This recipe contains protein powder and oats as optional ingredients as I wanted to make it as filling as possible if you were to have it for breakfast. I did use a no added sugar yoghurt in an attempt to make things healthier, then I used sweetened vanilla almond milk…The good intetherentions were . I would have used unsweetened vanilla if I could have found some, so if you have that available where you are, make that your first option.
If you choose to include the optional ingredients in this you will have to add more liquids to compensate. The amounts I’m going to list in the recipe below are based on using one of the two optional ingredients.
This recipe is gluten free, dairy free and vegan. It can be made nut free if you opt for vanilla soy milk instead of almond.
- 200g frozen mango
- ½ cup vanilla almond milk
- 100g no added sugar mango Alpro yoghurt
- ½ scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
- 20g GF oats (optional)
Toppings are the best part! And you can obviously have whatever you want but I used the following in the one pictured
- 1 kiwi, sliced
- Handful GF nutty granola
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
You know what to do here…add it all to a blender and blend until smooth.
Does this sound like a smoothie you’d enjoy for breakfast? Would you include either of the optional ingredients (or both)? I’ love to know what your favourite smoothie toppings are!
Until next time,
