Coffee smoothie with hazelnuts, banana and pure chocolate is an amazing smoothie for breakfast. I tried all kinds of coffees in the morning, but this coffee smoothie gave me the best coffee break ever.

Why is this the best coffee smoothie ever!? The taste of the coffee perfectly combines with the hazelnuts, chocolate and banana.

Try it, and let us know if this is also your best coffee ever. The hazelnuts are very healthy and according to their nutrition facts they are a real superfood! They contain a massive amount of vitamins and minerals, like vitamin A, C, K, calcium and iron.

I collected my hazelnuts in the woods to save some money. You will need to dry the hazelnuts for two weeks in a warm place in your home before consuming them. Also you can put them in the oven for 50 minutes at 160 Fahrenheit (70 degrees celsius or 345 Kelvin).

Instant coffee from nescafe is my favorite instant coffee, but you can also use your own brand. This is because you can use all instant coffee brands for iced coffee.
Ingredients
  • 4 teaspoons instant coffee (Nescaf√©)
  • 1 cup skimmed milk (240 ml)
  • ¼ cup water (60 ml)
  • 8 ice cubes
  • 8 hazelnuts
  • 1 tablespoon pure chocolate (bar)
  • 2 bananas
Instructions
  1. Crack the hazelnuts and peel the bananas. Toss together with all the ingredients in the blender and blend till smooth for about 45 seconds.

The sweet taste of this green smoothie comes from the kiwis and apple juice. I just love this green smoothie with its perfect sweet taste and all the right nutritions like copper, iron and many vitamins.

Kale is pretty hot in the United States at the moment and considered as a "Superfood". Not surprisingly, because they contain so many good nutritions.

Did you know that kale or also known as borecole comes from the typical Dutch dish "Boerenkool"? In the Netherlands they are eating this kale stew already for many decades mainly in winter and autumn.

I love those superfoods! In this pomegranate strawberry smoothie the superfoods chia seeds and pomegranate arils are bundling together.

Pomegranate holds all the necessary vitamin C and chia seeds all the necessary minerals like copper, Omega-3 fatty acids and calcium.

This carrot pineapple smoothie is a really healthy one! The pineapple, honey and ginger ingredients gives your smoothie a sweet and sour taste.

I just love my carrot pineapple smoothie! Carrots are not only good for eyes, but also prevent cancer, strokes and infections. Start blending those carrots and enjoy all the sweet and sour taste of your healthy orange veggies.

Carrot is a root vegetable and the wild carrot origins in Afghanistan. Already around 3000 BC carrots were cultivated in Europe! The first orange coloured carrots were cited in The Netherlands. Funny because orange is also their proud national color. Before that carrots were described as being red or yellow.

Everyday you learn something new ;)
Ingredients
  • 1½ cup carrot in pieces (275 gram)
  • ½ cup pineapple pieces (75 gram)
  • ¾ tablespoon ginger root shavings
  • 1½ cup fat free yogurt (360 ml)
  • 8 ice cubes
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Instructions
  1. Wash the carrots and chop them in small pieces, because carrots are pretty tough to blend. Grate little slices of a peeled ginger root and toss all the ingredients in the blender and blend till smooth.

Goodmorning everyone! This morning I made the perfect breakfast smoothie with banana and oatmeal. This diet smoothie for breakfast will boost your day!

I used frozen pieces of banana and in that case you will not need to add ice cubes to your ingredients for this banana oatmeal smoothie.
The chocolate shavings I created myself with the use of a rasp.

Oatmeal for breakfast is just a perfect start of the day! It reduces the risk of heart disease and lowers your blood cholesterol.
Of course you need to combine your oatmeal with other fat free products, like skimmed milk, fat free yogurt, fruits, etc. Since these facts are proofed by many studies a lot of people use oatmeal cereals for breakfast.
Ingredients
  • 2 bananas (frozen pieces)
  • ½ cup fat free yogurt (120 ml)
  • 1½ cup skimmed milk (360 ml)
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 6 tablespoons uncooked oatmeal (90 ml)
  • 2 tablespoons 99% pure chocolate shavings
Instructions
  1. Peel the bananas and chop them in four pieces. Fill your blender with all the ingredients and mix for 30 secondes.
  2. Drape the chocolate shavings on top of the smoothies.
