Mommy Mornings: Blender Breakfast

We all have mommy mornings! If you’ve followed my blog, you’ll know that there is never an excuse to skip breakfast. (not even on mommy mornings) If  you need help to get started with some quick breakfast ideas, you can get it on my post about Breakfast On-The-Go here. A good quality blender will now become your new best friend! Mommy Power Morning This was my go-to-breakfast during my 2nd trimester, when eating was a challenge and I was diagnosed with anemia (iron-deficiency). Spinach is a wonderful source of iron and the orange juice (with natural vitamin C) aids in iron absorption.

  • 1 cup of 100% Orange Juice
  • 2 cup of Spinach
  • 1/2 cup of Blueberries (use frozen if fresh is not available)
  • 1 Whole Banana

Blend & Enjoy

Baby Mama Morning Only have time to feed baby? or feed mommy? Blender Breakfast will allow you to feed both! Nothing goes to waste in this house, since our little darling has started solid foods and a lot of her food is on trial, there are lots of leftovers. Here’s what I like to do with them.

  • 3/4 cup of 100% Orange Juice (not from concentrate)
  • 1 cup of Spinach
  • 1/2 Banana (leftover from baby’s breakfast)
  • 1/4 Avocado (leftover from baby’s breakfast)
  • 1/4 Baked Apple (leftover from baby’s breakfast)
  • Throw in whatever else leftover from baby’s breakfast (chances are it was something nutritious anyways!!!)

Blend & Enjoy

High Protein Fruity Morning This also makes a great post-workout meal, or an evening snack (by omitting the banana & mangos) and using 1 cup of blueberries instead.

  • 1 cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 100 g of Unsweetened Greek Yogurt
  • 1 scoop of Your favourite vanilla protein ( I use Kaizen NATURAL WHEY)
  • 1 Whole Banana
  • 1/2 cup of ripe mangos (pre-sliced the night before)
  • 1/4 cup of strawberries (use frozen, if fresh is not available)
