Over the past two months I've perfected my breakfast smoothie, and made it dense enough to keep me full for 3-4 hours. At first I was worried having just a "liquid" for breakfast would leave me starving in an hour, but I've been pleasantly surprised. The key is having adequate amounts of protein (30-40g) and enough fat (15-30g). I find that adding a solid fat such as an avocado or nut butter to be more satisfying than using a liquid such as canned coconut milk. But others will disagree.
