This has become one of my favorite breakfast smoothies. It seems that recently I have been having this at least once per week. I call it my “chocolate ice cream” for breakfast :). Unlike some other smoothies I have had, it is also quite filling. I like to have it with 2 chicken apple sausage links to make sure I get some protein.
Let’s face it, I’m no photographer, so it was hard to get a “good” picture of this one. It may not look the greatest from the picture, but it is worth trying!
I got the idea for this smoothie at:
Here are specific measurements for the ingredients, although to be honest I don’t measure anymore. I just pour/scoop everything in and “eyeball it.” You will notice I omitted the crushed ice and flaxseed. I like a very creamy smoothie and my blender doesn’t like ice too well, and I don’t always have flaxseed around.
-8 ounces almond milk
-1 ripe banana (you could use a frozen one to make it more like ice cream!)
-1 tablespoon honey
-2 tablespoons cocoa powder
-2 tablespoons almond butter
-Mix all ingredients into high-speed blender and blend until it’s all smooth!
No excuses not to have time to make this, it is easy and quick and could easily be poured into a to-go cup to have on the way to wherever you are headed in the morning. In my opinion breakfast is the best meal of the day; don’t miss out!
