A fresh green smoothie is a great way to start your day, and a fantastic option for a plant-based breakfast. Smoothies are endlessly customisable, can be prepared in advance, are bursting with vitamins and are totally delicious to boot! Make sure that your smoothie contains enough protein to keep you full for hours by adding seeds or yoghurt to your recipe. We’ve used flax seeds here, but chia seeds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds are also great alternatives. The addition of seaweed to your smoothie will ensure that you get a hit of flavour as well as a health boost, because seaweed is a natural flavour-enhancer. You can also try freezing your smoothie mix in ice cream moulds for a refreshing summer treat!
