Here’s a breakfast in a glass that will get you up and running in the morning.

And who doesn’t appreciate the chance to start the day with chocolate?

I came up with this heart-starter smoothie after being sent the most beautiful coffee cups by Nespresso. They’d been designed to match the coffee capsules – so elegant.

Nespresso had just relaunched their Fortissio Lungo, the green capsule above; it’s a bit stronger than before and I used one of these when making this Thermomix smoothie.

Coffee And Cacao Smoothie - In The Thermomix
 
You can use any blender for this of course. These amounts make a large breakfast smoothie for one person
Ingredients
  • 200ml milk of your choice (I used Aldi organic soy milk)
  • 50g (I tbs) plain yoghurt
  • 15g (1 tbs) cacao
  • 1 Nespresso lungo coffee (or your favourite coffee)
Instructions
  1. Blend!
  2. In the Thermox, I do 30 seconds at speed 6, or a bit longer. I do love the frothy smoothies the Thermomix makes

I often make Thermomix smoothies as I really love the almost foamy texture that I get when I blend them for a good while.  I know you can use a stick blender, but I do prefer the Thermie.

Here’s the Nespresso being made… just looking at the photo is making me crave a coffee. 

I did enjoy messing about taking these photos too.

 What’s your fave get-going breakfast?

Does the coffee and cacao combination appeal?

      It’s a taste sensation Annabel, I used strong coffee and strong cacoa and love the combo.

    Gee that looks delicious. I think you could have that hot or cold. Lots of protein and a bit of caffeine to get you going. No wonder you feel like exercising.
