You guys know how I feel about breakfast. For me, it's the most important meal of the day and I couldn't function without it! I just wanted to share with you one of my 'go-to' breakfast options, especially if I'm in a hurry (which, let's face it, is 99.9% of the time).
I have done several variations of this and with the exception of the banana, you can substitute any fruit you want!
-1 FROZEN banana
-Optional fruit (I like frozen 1/4 mango. Strawberries, blueberries, etc.)
- ~1 cup Almond Milk Original
- ~1/2 Tablespoon milled flaxseed
- ~1/2 Tablespoon peanut butter
- Optional: A squirt of sugar free chocolate syrup...yummm
-Put in blender, blend, and go!
There are so many different options for smoothies, which is why I love them. You can adjust this anyway you like. I like to incorporate the peanut butter because the combination of fat and protein tend to help keep me full longer. The banana is best frozen because this eliminates the need for ice, which tends to be chunky. A frozen banana makes the smoothie creamy. The milled flaxseed may have a strange texture for some, but it is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids.
Let me know in the comments if you have any great smoothie combos!
