I am not a fan of breakfast. It takes too long and I don't have the time. But recently I discovered fruit smoothies. It started when I got engaged. I registered for KitchenAid's super expensive blender and justified it with thoughts of "I'm going to make so many smoothies!" I had never made a smoothie before. Well, I got my beloved blender. And it hung out in the huge pile of gifts until my husband had his front tooth removed. Don't ask. So being the good wife I am, I made him a banana smoothie. And it was the best thing I've ever made. Seriously. I couldn't believe how quick and easy it was. Bananas, milk, ice, vanilla, mix, done. Quicker than coffee. And I've been bringing smoothies to work ever since.
6 ice cubes
1/2 c milk
1/2 t vanilla
Throw ingredients in blender and blend.
The cream is not necessary but does make the smoothie a little thicker. If you want a healthy alternative, add your favorite yogurt instead.
I also like to switch it up and add in a little peanut butter or mixed berries. I introduced these to my stepdad last week who added a spoonful of protein powder. It was delish!
