Breakfast smoothie

Breakfast_smoothie_01Fruitsfruitsfruitsfruits. It happens every couple days that I loudly exclaim: “I could live off fruits my whole life! Fruitsfruitsfruits and nothing else!” It’s not entirely true, I couldn’t do it, too much I like savory meals, but my love to fruits is indeed intense. Even before I changed my eating habits, I ate fruits in abundance. I know, there are many different opinions out there about the high sugar in fruits… Personally, I am an advocate of fructose. Fructose is the sugar contained in fruits, which gives you energy. That is why I love to have a fruit smoothie for breakfast. The ingredients will always change, depending on which fruits I have at home.

This one is my current favorite at the moment. It’s thick and sweet and tastes like summer!

Breakfast smoothie Recipe

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Servings: 2


  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 handful of (frozen) strawberries
  • ½ mango
  • 1 kiwi
  • plant milk
  • water
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp maca powder (optional)


Put everything in your blender and let it blend until smooth, add plant milk and a bit of water depending on which consistency you want your smoothie to have. Tip: You can easily freeze bananas at home. Peel them, cut them into small pieces (it'll later be easier to blend them) and store them in a container or bag in the freezer. Works with all fruits!

Welcome to my kitchen, my colourful world of nourishing foods. Here I choose to live healthy, eating whole, plant-based foods; a happy mix of vegetables, legumes, fruits, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

I am Pauline, a food lover and photographer from Berlin.

My recipes are simple, vegetarian dishes with plant-based and natural ingredients only. Perfect for everyday life. You do not have to be a skilled cook to have a balanced and healthy diet – I am not! An open mind and willingness to try out something new everyday shall be enough. It’s an infinite journey, and I am happy about everyone who decides to come along.
