Around November, my blender typically begins to feel neglected. Sometimes I wish Minnesota summers would stick around forever. Sometimes I'm thankful for the white that surrounds my world during Christmas. And sometimes it's February and I still just really need a cold breakfast.
Typically, I like to pack my smoothies with veggies. I figure I might as well get the extra punch of nutrients if I'm drinking something that's going to taste yummy whether they are there or not. This morning was a little different. The banana's on my counter were going south, I had leftover coffee already brewed, and for some odd reason, they painted a pretty picture in my mind when I mixed the two of them together.
I was right.
If you are already a smoothie drinker, you probably have these ingredients laying around your kitchen waiting to be used. Into my blender went 1/2 cup of brewed coffee, 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 banana, 1 Tbsp ground flax seed, and 1 small container of greek yogurt. (you could also throw in a Starbucks Via packet if you had one, it would probably give it more of a frappe taste). Pour it all into your tumblr, mug, or mason jar and enjoy on your way to work.
Happy Monday to you all. I hope your day is filled with lots of smiles, summer thoughts, and of course, caffeine.
