Especially in Summer I love to have a smoothie for breakfast - it’s quick, easy and refreshing :sun_with_face: I wrote a blogpost about the nutritional side of smoothies, the basics how to make them and what to be aware of. If you’re interested, have a look there.

If you’re very active and/or need more energy, you can always add more oats, a second banana, protein powder, more nuts or nut butters - make it your own!

This smoothie has everything it needs for a good start to the day. The whole smoothie has about 360 kcal and

e.g. amount of daily target
Fiber 16 g 60%
Omega-3 1.6 g >100%
Protein 12 g 25%

A little note on Omega-3’s (detailed post will follow): plant-based sources contain ALA, but not DHA and EPA, which are also very important for us. Our bodies can convert them from ALA, but only in moderation. So the Omega-3 fatty acid ALA from seeds might not be enough.
