My latest "breakfast in a cup" incorporates some yummy and healthy things that mask the taste of some super healthy veggies. My green hatin' son (excluding kiwi and avocado) drank a ton of this smoothie and said "yum, chocolate milkshake mommy". SCORE!
Sarah's Protein Powerhouse veggie hiding Smoothie
1 banana sliced and frozen (I slice and put in the freezer the night before)
1/3 cup of organic milk or coconut milk
1 dollop of honey
1 fistful of raw spinach
1/3 cup of creamy peanut butter. Why not try homemade?
1.5 tsp of good quality cocoa powder (I prefer dark chocolate)
1 tsp of chia seeds
Blend all ingredients until smooth. I like to make this about 20 minutes before I leave for work, and then stick it in the freezer. The chia seeds make the smoothie thicker the longer it sits, so it's great to let it "rest" for a bit, but don't wait too long before enjoying it!
