Sleepy Cookie Dough Cheesecake Verrines

I shared this recipe with Stefanie’s readers a little under a month ago.

Since then, I’ve had so many clients rant and rave about how much they love the sleepy smoothie. So, I figured it was time to share the recipe will all of you!

You know that feeling you get when you wake up and you’re not really sure what day it is or what you’re supposed to be doing? Just as our mind needs a couple of moments to wake up, our tummies do too. That’s why the best breakfast you can give yourself is a liquid one.

But who has the time to make themselves a nice wholesome breakfast?

Enter the sleepy smoothie.

They…

  • Can replace a meal
  • Are ready in under 1 minute
  • Pack a strong nutritious punch
  • Are inexpensive
  • Are a fantastic delivery system. In today’s smoothies we have:
    • chia seed – the wonder seed for supporting a regular + healthy digestive system
    • oats – beneficial B vitamins + helps to lower cholesterol + high in manganese
    • strawberries – high in fiber + antioxidants
    • cacao – supports brain health + muscle relaxation
  • Are easily digested

First up; strawberry cheesecake.

Sleepy Cookie Dough Cheesecake Verrines

  • 1 Sleepy Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie
  • 1 Sleepy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Smoothie

Prepare smoothies as directed above, then layer in 2 tall glasses.

Makes 2 servings. These babies are great the next day too.

I’ve had people tell me they blend all of the ingredients the night before, then let it sit overnight [say if you have a roommate that doesn't like the sound of a blender waking them up at 4am].

If you need added protein, don’t be afraid to add protein powder to the mix before letting it sit overnight.

What do you usually have for breakfast?

Strawberry, or chocolate?
