I am a breakfast person. I wake up and I'm ready to eat. Unlike my kids whom wake up ready to eat but sometimes it's because they skipped dinner based on personal preferences.
I cook/prepare a variety of items for breakfast. Sometimes the meal is cereal or oatmeal but I'm ok whipping up pancakes, waffles or muffins too. I also like to make smoothies.
Smoothies are hit or miss with the kids. Sometimes I actually win getting fruits and vegetables in them this way sometimes the taste gets them straight out the gate. I remember making a spinach one but my daughter had seen me put strawberries in prior to the spinach. She asked why is it was green? I lied and said because strawberries turn green when blended sometimes. Hmmm. She has this hate with green things: broccoli specifically. I will tell you what. She drank that green drink and it was good. Bye, bye spinach do your nutritional magic!
Today was a banana smoothie with peanut butter. This recipe was dairyfree but you could easily change milk in place of my substitute. Skipping the peanutbutter is not a big deal either.
1 frozen banana
1 cup of chocolate almond milk
1 T peanut butter
Blend it all together. Depending on how many mouths are tempted to drink or try it, I may think it out with more milk. I like thicker smoothies.
I find it to be sweet enough based on the almond milk so I don't add any extra sweeter but you could add a tablespoon of syrup or honey.
Bottoms up! Try a glass of this to accompany your next breakfast or in place of eating if your in a rush! Do you drink smoothies what's your favorite blend?
