{Breakfast Post #01} Nutty Smoothie

I got inspired by some beauty blogs out there that have series of posts under the same category and are numerated which makes it really fun, and kind of like a story with multiple short stories. Am I making any sense? Anyway I though why not do it with food? Well breakfast. Which is my favourite favourite favourite meal of the day.

Now don't get me wrong. My loving breakfast does not make me a morning person. Because well, I love my sleep. Like really love my sleep. My husband can testify.

But I need breakfast to start the day right. Quick and healthy is the norm, during the week at least. And treat time during the weekend - I am quite impartial to a full English brekkie... or a croissant, hot from the oven with extra butter and jam... Bliss. Right, back to this nutty little smoothie of a recipe.

This kind of reminds me of the breakfast I used to love as a kid. Peanut butter toast with slices of banana. Yum. I still love it now. But this is a tad healthier.

It gets wizzed up in a blender or a food processor in a matter of seconds. You can sip on it whilst getting ready, or put in a to-go cup and sip on your way out. Easy peasy lemon squeezy, as they say in these parts of the world.

To make it, you'll need:

250 ml unsweetened almond milk
1 banana, frozen and in smallish chunks (do this the night before)
2 heaped tablespoons almond butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
to sweeten, a squirt of raw honey
1 scoop protein powder (optional)

Put everything in your blender or food processor and blend away until smooth.

This might just transform me into a morning person. What do you think? Yeah, let's not push it too far...
