My mornings have been pretty busy lately, which is why I’ve been flooding this space with delicious quick breakfast recipes! It’s also my favorite meal. And when you go to bed dosing off to the smell of imaginary baked oatmeal or which toppings to put on your perfect smoothie bowl, I think the breakfast kick may have hooked itself in a little too deep. But because I know so many of you equally adore a quick breakfast recipe, here is one more to add to your repertoire!

Keeping your morning ritual simple and quick: blend spinach, banana slices, oat milk, almond butter and a dash of vanilla powder for a very filling and delicious morning meal. If you are even more pressed for time and cant spare a few minutes in the morning, not a problem – pour into a bottle, add a straw and take with you out the door! It really is a filling meal that’s not to be underestimated. The fresh spinach, nutty almond butter and banana create a smooth and rich breakfast that will keep you nourished for hours.
