Banana Chocolate Breakfast Smoothies

We don’t normally keep chocolate milk in the house, so when I had some left over from making Monday’s chocolate soufflés, I knew I had to do something special with it. Chugging it was my first thought, but since I’m on this health kick, I decided I’d throw some potassium and fiber in the mix and make myself a nice breakfast drink. I blended the chocolate milk with a banana, oatmeal and some ice, and the results were really tasty. That’s pretty much all you need to know to copy this, but if you, like me, enjoy learning about the obvious, please follow along.

Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Most mornings, I’m so late rushing to work that I can barely remember to grab a yogurt on my way out the door. Then, every once in a while, I find a couple extra minutes (and I literally mean a couple, as in two) to treat myself to something special. Yesterday was one of those days, and as soon as I saw my opening, I called on my general knowledge of smoothie-making and threw together the Banana Breakfast Smoothie you see before you. It’s filling, deliciously banana-ey, and creamy with a touch of cinnamon. I need to hit the snooze button one less time more often.

Delicious and energizing Green Tea Banana Smoothies

Keeping up with my current matcha green-tea obsession (check out my recent meringues and frosting if you haven’t already), I thought I’d try incorporating it in my morning smoothie routine. I love green tea and could have it at any time of the day, but I’ve learned that given my sensitivity to caffeine, I’m much better off consuming it in the morning. Until now, I would occasionally treat myself to Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccinos, but standing in that morning line is never much of a treat. Plus, something about the syrup and whipped cream that I can never seem to turn down, never quite felt early-morning appropriate. So, one recent morning, I set out to find something that was and came upon this recipe. After making just a few adjustments I’ve come to adopt Green Tea Banana Smoothies as part of my morning breakfast lineup and I couldn’t be happier with them.

Piña Colada Smoothie

Piña coladas. I love them so much. So it was only a matter of time before I started drinking them for breakfast. Of course, I’m talking about virgin piña coladas, but even then, making the drink morning-friendly required a few adjustments like dropping the maraschino cherries in favor of vanilla greek yogurt. Follow along and join me in getting the fiestas started a little earlier in the day.
