A few weeks back I got this super-duper invitation to host a healthy breakfast in coworking space where I have my office. They wanted me to organize a breakfast for all the coworkers there - to preach why breakfast is the most important meal of the day, to showcase what I typically eat for breakfast and of course to make some easy HEALTHY breakfast meals for them.
My eyes were literally swamped with happy tears when I got that invite. I waited for this moment my whole life! ... Ok I'm overreacting. BUT really... I wanted to do this since I moved there. These people NEEDED these healthy meals. They needed me to show them how delicious and super EASY breakfast can be - to never-ever skip their breakfast again.
I've decided to make Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie and Blueberry Banana Smoothie. Smoothies are always a good breakfast idea especially for people who are busy. Also, they are the great way to show that healthy breakfast doesn't have to be complicated nor tedious - but rather tasty, easy and super NUTRITIOUS.

To make these cups I used Greek yogurt full of proteins in which I mixed creamy peanut butter LOADED with more proteins, monounsaturated fatty acids (healthy fats), fibers, vitamins A and E, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, and many other amazing nutrients. I'm overwhelmed with peanut butter health benefits. But most importantly it's very satisfying.
Layers of creamy peanut butter yogurt mixture are disrupted with crunchy sweet, honey homemade granola. Granola is crumbled right into the yogurt mixture like a delicious dream. The banana slices placed along with granola gave unbelievable texture and natural sweetness.
Sweet and creamy peanut butter yogurt layers are topped with FRESH fruits and sprinkled with SUPERFOODS - bee pollen and crushed goji berries. A really good stuff! You can add some toasted coconut chips too.
