I needed a super quick and super easy breakfast this morning.  Lately, I’ve been enjoying strawberries with almond milk on top of them, so I took it a bit farther today.  First I sliced four strawberries into a bowl, then I just threw in a handful of walnuts and almonds, then a palmful of raisins, and poured almond milk over it.

Today’s smoothie is my favorite so far. I just went into the kitchen, tossed the ingredients I had on hand into the blender and ended up with a glass full of frozen goodness.

1 banana
1 cup almond milk
1 big handful ice
2 T. peanut butter
2 T. carob chips

I use a vegan carob chip, but any chocolate would do here.   This has just the right balance of the banana, peanutbutter, and chocolate flavors.  I could blend up one of these when I had an ice cream craving and be totally happy.  Enjoy!

THIS SMOOTHIE IS sweet and very summery.   I can’t get enough of it!

Mango Blueberry Smoothie

1 c. frozen mango chunks

1 c. frozen blueberries

1 T. honey

1 T. flaxseed

1/2 c. almond milk (add more as needed)

Place all ingredients in blender.  Blend to a consistency you like, adding almond milk when necessary.  Pour into glasses, top each glass with a piece of mango,  and enjoy!    Some people prefer to mash up the flaxseed first, which you can do with a mortar and pestle.  I leave mine whole, since I like to chew them and get even more of those healthy oils.
