Power Mornings – Breakfast smoothies

20140802-071925-26365063.jpg*disclaimer – I am not a nutritionist.


So recently we’ve equipped ourselves with a Shake and Take, and trust me when I say its a wonderful invention. Essentially, it does as its name says, you make a shake and you take it with you immediately!

And its been working really great so far. Give me a week or two more, and I’ll probably write about this wonderful device.


The office has since been bitten by the juice bug. Having tried the 3 day cleanse by Rejuicenate, and the morning and night drinks from Lucky You, we were convinced, we can do this on our own… for breakfast at least.


Thus, the few recipes from the test week. The ingredients picked had to be easily accessible to anyone, though there were some ingredients that were initial investments (like cacao nibs in the first recipe). So don’t expect to see Kale anywhere.

All recipes are based on a volume of 600mL
