A smoothie for breakfast has the potential to provide an abundance of nutrients, and whole body nourishment. Here are the essentials for a dreamy breakfast shake/smoothie bowl that tastes like dessert, while nourishing the brain, hormones, adrenals and more.

Liquid base: 1 cup homemade walnut milk

Protein: @nkdnutrition pea and matcha powder {plant based, and also serving up a big dose of antioxidants}

Frozen item: ½ cup frozen zucchini {less sugar than bananas}

Fruit: ¼ cup frozen wild blueberries {brain food}

Fiber: Handful of microgreens and 2 tbsp. ground flaxseeds {nutrient dense + aids in digestion}

Healthy fat: 1 tbsp. cashew butter {heart supportive}

Superfoods: 1 tbsp. cacao powder{mood elevating}, ½ tbsp. maca powder {supports the adrenal system}, and a light drizzle of @beekeepers superfood honey

Herbs/spices: 1 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon {helps balanced blood sugar} and a few dashes pink sea salt {minerals}

Toppings {having toppings on top of your smoothies to chew aids in digestion}: ¼ cup Figs and 1 cut up cookie dough bliss ball

This type of meal keeps me energized and full until lunch time.
