Is coffee a proper breakfast? Many people (including us) would agree – indeed, 40 per cent of South Australians would rather skip breakfast than their cuppa. However, coffee by itself does not have enough nutrients to give you energy in the morning and keep your appetite in check until lunchtime. Health experts recommend adding a morning menu that has a sufficient amount of protein, fibre and calories. Coffee smoothies can be a great option for those looking to have a nutritious, caffeine-packed breakfast without having to cook or spend time getting a bite. Here are some of our favourite coffee smoothie recipes for your mornings…
