This is one high protein breakfast we think the kids will love – the Berry Nutty Breakfast Milkshake. I call it a milkshake and not a smoothie because kids tend to think a milkshake is more fun and so I’m just playing with words. You can too! So this shake has protein, antioxidants, micronutrients and super-nutrients if you add a ‘super’-powder of your choice. My favorite is immune boosting Chaga powder but you can use any one. Just remember if you add a green like spirulina, it will affect the colour of the shake! So this is just a suggestion, you can play around with it but this is one of my favorites.

Ingredients:

1 cup of coconut or almond milk. You can also use a full fat dairy milk

1 cup of organic mixed berries (raspberries, blueberries, cranberries and blackberries)

2 tbsps of nut butter – almond or cashew. You can use peanut but it has a stronger flavor.

1 tsp of Chaga powder extract (optional)

1 tbsp of raw honey

A squeeze of lemon juice and a tiny piece of rind.

Fruit or nuts to decorate

Put everything in a blender until smooth. You may need to add more liquid to reach your desired consistency. You can also add ice to make it more of an arctic blast. Top with some fruit or nuts and you’re good to go! Of course this is not just for breakfast, it can be a quick snack for those on-the-go moments. Enjoy!
