Raw Power Breakfast: Green Power Hemp Milk, Grawnola, Apple

Many people always ask me this question what I usually have as raw breakfast, ESPECIALLY in the winter months, when it's still cold and your body might need a bit more energizing and fattening things to keep you warm and raw food might seem an odd concept. This is not at all true and you can have very filling and hearty breakfasts with raw food and yet have so much more nutrients and enzymes especially if you add some potent high enzymatic green powders and the right proteins and omega 3 fatty acids. I am just back from Asia not too long ago and the winter in Berlin doesn't seem to want to make space for Spring yet, so my breakfasts still tend to be a bit more hearty but I still crave the greens and freshness as well.

So here is my favorite breakfast, I have been eating pretty much every day of this week. Enjoy :-)

Green Power Hemp Milk:

  • 1 blood orange
  • 1/3 - 1/2 banana (or avocado if you want less sweet)
  • 1 cup young coconut water (or regular water)
  • 2 Tablespoons deshelled Hemp Seeds (great source of Omega 3)
  • 1-2 teaspoons Sunwarrior Protein, Vanilla
  • 1 scoop Best of Greens Powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried dandelion and nettle (I dried it myself last summer)
Blend all in Vitamix until smooth. 

Pour in a bowl and add 
Well, there are many Grawnolas out there already, but if you want to taste mine, you can do so , by ordering it online in my shop or just come by in Berlin or you can learn it in my seminar The 101 of Raw Food, so you can make your own :-)

Wish you all a happy start of Spring 2013 and a energetic start of every single day :-)



  1. hi Boris, great post. where do you get all that coconut water in Berlin?

    1. There is Kulau ( that sells organic packaged coconut water, and they often also have organic whole coconuts on offer. Otherwise, the little Asia Delta Market around the corner from me on Heinrich-Heine Strasse, just before Jannowitz-Brücke coming from the South always stocks young coconuts from Thailand. They are not organic but very nice :-)

  2. Hi Boris, always always love your posts, wish you did them every week :) I see that you are using a green powder. I have been wondering for the longest time whether these would be a good thing to include in my diet. As an expert, what do you think of them? Do you also sell them?

    1. Hi Laura,

      as I have written in the post, I use the Best of Greens powder that I sell as well. I love it and take it every day and think it's a great supplement to up your intake of greens.
      You can order it here, let me know if you have any questions!
