Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and while it might be easy to grab a strong coffee and sticky bun, with a little preparation you can kick-start your day with a blend of super foods. AWM asks the experts to find the best breakfast drinks you can make yourself.

Matcha Shake, by Dan Thomson, Founder of Supernatural juice and smoothie bar

Matcha is grown in the shade rather than the sunlight so it has higher chlorophyll levels which fight the free radicals in the body that cause cancer. Matcha also has a strong caffeine content so is the perfect alternative to your morning coffee.

2 bananas
½ teaspoon matcha green tea
pinch cinnamon
pinch rock salt
1 scoop vanilla whey protein / vegan protein
10ml date nectar / agave
150ml coconut milk
4 cubes ice

Blend all ingredients in a high-powered blender for 20-30 seconds and serve.

Mango Orange Lassi, by dietician Catherine Perez

A hydrating and yummy smoothie, with the rich sweetness of mango, and the added Vit C from an orange.

1 6oz cup vanilla plant based yogurt
1 cup frozen mango
1 navel orange, diced and peeled
Pinch of turmeric
Pinch cardamom
1 medjool date, pitted
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup ice (optional)

Add all ingredients to a high speed blender. Blend until nice and smooth. If smoothie is too thick, feel free to add more almond milk to achieve your desired consistency. For a fun twist, feel free to use blood orange in place of the regular navel orange.

Grandfather’s daily tonic, by Mira Manek, Food Writer

I put my grandfather’s good health down to this juice and his strict eating times. This juice contains fresh turmeric along with ginger, creating the perfect preventative and healing tonic at any time of year.

2 apples
5 carrots
5 centimetre (2 inch) piece of ginger
2.5 centimetre (1 inch) piece of turmeric root

Chop everything into chunks and place in a juicer. Juice, pour into two glasses and drink straight away. Enjoy first thing in the morning.
