Every morning I have the constant battle of deciding what to wear to work and what to have for breakfast. I end up standing in front of an open closet looking at all my clothes and saying to myself “I have nothing to wear”, before I know it, time has flown by and there’s not enough time for breakfast. I usually just fuel up on coffee and run out the door. NOT GOOD!!!
I wanted to get rid of this awful habit so I started picking out my outfit the night before (thank you weather app) so that I had time in the morning to eat something. When I lived with my parents my mom would fix me breakfast but living alone means that the burden falls on my shoulders. Fortunately, I discovered Pinterest (Thank you, Dena) and it’s plethora of recipes. I troll that site everyday for inspiration for everything from apple-pies to zoo animals. During one of my “pinning sessions” I found a quick-fix-breakfast. SMOOTHIES!
I’ve tried several recipes but my favourite was the peanut-butter&banana smoothie. It asks for few ingredients and the taste is amazing. It sustains me till lunch and I can I drink it on my way to work which makes me love it even more.
To make this delicious drink, you will need
- 1 ripe banana
- A tablespoon of your favourite peanut-butter
- 1/4 cup low fat milk
- +/- 6 ice-cubes
Throw all the ingredients into your blender and flip the switch. After a few good swirls inside the blender you will have the most delightful breakfast smoothie. Pour it into your travel mug and enjoy on the go!
*For an added burst of flavour throw in some almonds.
