Favorite Breakfast Smoothie
Super simple. Super easy. Virtuous, but tastes like a shake.)
1 ripe fair trade, organic banana, peeled
1/2 cup plain, unsweetened organic yogurt (Wildwood soy or Kalona Supernatural full-fat dairy)
1 heaping spoonful of fair trade, organic baking cocoa (Equal Exchange is my favorite)
1 cup organic milk (Blue Diamond almond is my favorite)
1 Tbsp. ground flaxseed (Bob's golden is my favorite)
Blend. I blend it right in the wide mouth pint jar that I drink it out of using my immersion blender (Cuisinart stainless is my fave). It's important to drink this with a straw. That's part of what makes smoothies so fun and convenient for breakfast. I love these stainless steel straws the best. And I love that this smoothie is kind of tart- it's only sweetened by the banana and milk.
I couldn't drink my usual smoothie this morning, though, because my dog Hannah ate all of my bananas. It was the largest bunch of bananas I've ever seen at the co-op. The cashier and I marveled at how huge they were and then 24 hours later, Hannah ate every single one. She didn't feel very well.
I figure that this deserves her very first entry into dog-shaming.com.
