Easy Breakfast Smoothie

Good morning!
As much as some people hate routine, if there’s one that I do stick to, it’s my morning set up which involves the preparation of my Easy Breakfast Smoothie.  The first time I tried Vega One Nutritional Shake, I was sold on the amazing health benefits, so I decided to experiment with various Vega flavours, liquids, berries, and other fruit,  until I discovered the tastiest one for me.  Here we have my recipe made with Vega in Chocolate, which is a pretty obvious choice for me, the chocolate addict.

I have to tell you why I am hooked.  I saw a real improvement in my energy level with Vega.  The nutritional value of this protein powder is incredible.  Also, it is completely plant-based, made from natural whole food ingredients.  Vega One is packed with:

  • 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals (smile!)
  • 15 g protein (!!!)
  • 6 g fibre (think healthy gut)
  • 1.5 g Omega-3  (one scoop of Vega is equivalent to the Omega-3 found in 6 oz. of wild chum salmon)
  • Antioxidants (equivalent to 2.7 cups of blueberries!)
  • Probiotics (great for those of us who are not keen on yogurt)
  • Greens (equivalent to 3 servings of vegetables)

Banana Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie

Easy Breakfast Smoothie

Makes 1 to 2 smoothies


  • 1 scoop of Vega powder in Chocolate
  • 1 cup of almond milk (I use Almond Breeze, you can use any non-dairy milk of your choice)
  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • 1/2 of a banana


  • Take each of the ingredients listed above, pour them into your blender, and pulse your smoothie for a few seconds until it is the consistency you are looking for.  If you want it a little smoother, add a splash of almond milk.
  • Pour into your favourite tumbler, grab, and go!
