Most days for breakfast I am an eggs and bacon kind of girl. Then there are the days that I have somewhere to be and need something quick. I have a ninja blender and just throw the following ingredients into one of the single cups and blend away:
- Almond milk (I use unsweetened vanilla)
- 1 banana (I like to eat them with a little green on top, so this is a perfect use for them when they start to turn)
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
- 1 Tbsp cacao powder
- 1 Tbsp almond butter
I don’t actually measure the ice and almond milk, but it’s about 1 cup of the small ice cubes my fridge produces and 1/2-3/4 cup of almond milk, depending on how you like the consistency. I add them in the order listed so that they don’t stick to the bottom. The smoothie has some grainy texture due to the flaxseed and chia seed, but this doesn’t bother me and I think it tastes great!
Let your light shine!
