You must have heard a million times that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In fear of repeating ourselves – it really is. If you want to get through your day with energy and feel in tip top condition, then a power breakfast full of the right nutrition is the way to go.

1 handful of kale (fresh or frozen)

40g whey protein powder

¼tsp ground nutmeg

¼tsp ground ginger

½tsp ground cinnamon

Ice cubes (optional)



  1. Add all your ingredients gradually (as listed) into an electric blender. As a rule of thumb, you want to add the liquid first and the frozen last and everything else goes in between. Blend until smooth.
