I get on breakfast kicks that can last for years of eating the same thing. This week I realized that I have completely ended a three-year love affair with Fage yogurt topped with granola and honey. I started cheating a few months ago as I began to eat less dairy. The more I experimented with smoothies the better they tasted (and the better I felt afterwards). I’ve all but forgotten about my yogurt parfait obsession as I’ve moved on to a fascination with all things cold and blended.
The formula for what I think is the perfect smoothie: almond milk + any nut butter + frozen banana. Optional add-ins: cinnamon, nutmeg, cut up fruit, maple syrup, vanilla, rolled oats and a new one for me: dates!
A Date With Peanut Butter (serves 1)
1 cup almond milk
1 heaping spoonful peanut butter
1 frozen banana
2 dates (stones removed)
generous sprinkle of nutmeg
generous sprinkle of cinnamon
Directions: Blend and enjoy. *The dates aren’t completely blended. They’re like little chewy bites of candy.
Sipping a smoothie+ browsing cookbooks = a perfect early morning
