I’m a smoothie girl.
I have one just about every morning for breakfast, unless I’m running late (in which case I skip the smoothie and snack constantly until about 11:30am when I finally give up and go to lunch). My usual morning smoothie involves almond milk, Vega Vanilla Chai, chia seeds, spinach and banana. This is great in the morning, but sometimes a girl needs a milkshake for dinner.
When this girl needs a milkshake for dinner once
in a blue moon a week, I love:
1 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 t unsweetened cocoa powder (I like Green & Black’s)
1 T honey
1 ripe banana
1 scoop Sun Warrior
1/5 block of tofu (silken if you can get it, if not, firm will do)
a few chocolate chips!
Since I gave up added sweets for Lent (ugh – how many days left?!) I have been substituting the honey for an extra half of a banana and the chocolate chips for raw cacao nibs. Not quite the same, but I think I heard someone sing once that you can’t always get what you want 🙂
Blend everything together and garnish with a few chocolate chips or cacao nibs. Dinner is served!
