As health has steadily become more of a priority to me as I’ve grown up, the old adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day has become more and more important to me too. It really does set the tone for my whole day, including how my workout goes, how productive I am and how I feel in general—given how important it is to me, I’ve developed some surefire strategies so that I get in as much nutrition as I can in the most delicious way possible, something OasisNutrisource line is perfect for!

I used to shy away from using juice in my smoothies because I didn’t want the added sugar or, if the juice was sugar-free, the artificial sweeteners that so many sugar-free juices are often filled with. That’s why I was so excited to hear that Oasis Nutrisource is sweetened naturally with stevia, meaning it comes in at only 40 calories per serving without being laced with any artificial ingredients! This berry blend below has become my go-to breakfast staple—packed full of antioxidant-rich berries, blood sugar stabilizing and iron-dense spinach and pineapple (a favourite for its digestion aiding properties), it’s as nutritious as it is delicious. 

Tropical Berry Breakfast Smoothie 

 1 cup Oasis Nutrisource Cranberry Juice 
1 heaping handful spinach
 1/2 cup each frozen blackberry, raspberries, blueberries
1 cup chopped pineapple

 Blend all together, but a good tip is to put your liquids (juice, coconut water, etc) in first and then layer things in based off of how easy they blend (i.e. put your spinach in next, your pineapple and then the frozen berries!).

 Now a little bonus here—my favourite post-workout smoothie! I don’t know if it’s because I always had a banana after swim practices when I was younger, but I find I crave bananas after a sweat session like crazy. I love blending them up in smoothies so I can have the benefits of all the other delicious additions as well, plus blending up your post-workout snack helps it digest more easily (meaning your system benefits more quickly from it!).

 Banana Choco-Coconut Post-Workout Smoothie 

 1/2 cup each coconut milk and coconut water
1/2 cup Oasis Nutrisource Wild Berry Pomegranate
1 banana (tip—freeze your ripe ones to make this creamier!)
1 tbsp almond butter
2 tbsp cocoa powder 

Blend all together and enjoy post-workout (and don’t forget to hydrate tons!).

 Hope you love these recipes and Oasis’ blends! As it happens, if you’re a smoothie fiend yourself you might want to enter Oasis’ Nutrisource giveaway—win 1 of 10 $1000 shopping sprees here!

    This looks nice.
    I usually only put juice if I think the smoothie will have a less pleasant taste (maybe from beetroot or something unusual I'm using). It really depends and I do tend to avoid it.
