Breakfast These Days

3 May

Since spring has sprung I have been swapping my warm bowls of oatmeal and quinoa porridge for smoothies.  They’re great because you can take them on the go – if you have to rush out the door.  I am always sure to throw some spinach in so I get my nutritious greens in before 9 am in the morning – can’t beat that.  It’s fun throwing things into the blender and seeing what you get, but I’ve been coming back to this one for the past few days.

Chocolate Surprise:

for lack of a better name (ha!)

Ingredients:

  • handful of spinach
  • handful of frozen blackberries (or any other berry you have on hand)
  • half of a banana
  • 1 cup coconut milk (use any other type of non-dairy milk or coconut water)
  • 2 Tbs cacao powder
  • OPTIONAL ADD INS:
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1 Tbs chia seeds
  • 1 Tbs hazelnut butter

Directions:

If you have a good blender throw it all in and blend.  If you have a rinky dink one like I do:

Blend spinach with a 1/4 cup coconut milk, then add frozen berries, banana and blend, then add in the rest of your coconut milk with cacao powder and any other add ins you’d like.

Drink up and enjoy!
