This is the ultimate breakfast smoothie. Especially when you want your smoothie to actually taste like...well, breakfast! Some of these ingredients might seem like odd additions, what with avocado and nutritional yeast, but I assure you this is the real deal. Make it and see for yourself! This dreamy smoothie really tastes just like french toast. It has that perfect eggy, maple syrup, and sweet vanilla flavor that you find only in french toast. I might have made this for dinner, but breakfast was clearly on my mind.
French Toast Smoothie
Notes: I like soy milk here because coconut and almond milk have too strong of a flavor. I used frozen avocado because of it's more neutral taste, though you could use a banana, but I think it's too strong of a flavor. The nutritional yeast is essential to this smoothie.
- 1 cup soymilk
- 1/4 avocado, frozen and chopped
- 1/2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast, large flake
- 1 1/2 Tbsp. maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp. ground flax seed (or 1 tsp. whole)
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- small grating of fresh nutmeg
- pinch of salt
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Feel free to blend in a few ice cubes too, if you like.
