One of our go to breakfasts are protein smoothie’s. Largely because they are so quick, portable and easy to get a blend of protein, fat, carb. Plus we tend to hide a veg or two in there to start the day on a good note. This one has cauliflower in, but you wouldn’t notice.

The easiest way I have found to add veg to a smoothie is to buy it frozen as then it’s fresh to hand when needed plus adds coldness. Win, win.

I use My Protein’s vegan blend (unflavoured to avoid any artificial sweeteners) and my partner uses My Protein’s vanilla stevia whey.

This recipe came about as my partner loves a Pina Colada, however I’m not sure even he would reach for one for breakfast…

Pina Colada

Virgin Pina Colada Protein Smoothie
Recipe type: Breakfast, Drink, Snack
Serves: 1
 
Ingredients
  • 1 scoop of vegan or whey protein powder (if you eat dairy)
  • 3-4 florets of frozen cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp of coconut cream
  • 4 good chunks of fresh pineapple
  • Water or coconut milk to taste
  • Ice if desired
  • A few drops of stevia or your chosen natural sweetener if the pineapple/coconut isn't sweet enough for you
Instructions
  1. Start by adding the cauliflower and pineapple to your blender along with enough water or coconut milk to cover it. Blend well until smooth
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend again. If you like it thinner add more liquid and less ice. f you want it thicker and your blender can cope use plenty of ice and serve in a bowl to eat with a spoon.

  4. Enjoy!
