Is it just me or do you also feel too busy to try and figure out breakfast!? It’s like almost an inconvenience in the morning. You wake up with so many questions…
- What’s the weather?
- Where is the remote?
- Which new channel do I like?
- What am I going to wear?
- What do I have to do when I get to work?
- What do I have to do before I leave?
WAIT…. the kids….
- Did they say the weather yet?
- What am I putting on the kids?
- Why are they crying?
- Where is your shoes?
- Why is your sister screaming?
- Why do you want leftover pizza at 6am?
DARN IT!? WHAT IS THE WEATHER!!??
At this point, you have to head out the door in 5 minutes and adding one more task would make you feel like you woke up on the wrong side of the bed. So you take off with nothing in your stomach but 2 1/2 slices of pepperoni from that leftover pizza your daughters were eating.
If this is you, put your hand up! (my hand is so high in the air right now)
Solution? Well, if you’re looking for the weather, then use your smart phone. As for breakfast…..
This Banana Bread Breakfast Smoothie is 100% the solution.
Breakfast is a must for numerous reasons, but I’m not here to preach to you. This banana bread breakfast smoothie will be one of those CONVENIENT solutions to such an everyday hassle.
With our Banana Bread Breakfast Smoothie I am able to make it the night before. I shove everything in the a container (or in our ninja blender cup) and refrigerate overnight. In the morning I go to the kitchen first and instead of starting coffee and walking away, I toss it in a blender and hang there for the few seconds it takes to blend.
This smoothie has such a great taste, your body can’t resist the urge to do the “Ju Ju”.
The smoothie is not titled “banana bread” because it sounds cool. It means comfort food and this is a comfort smoothie (my phrase I’m coining it)! The kids put the smoothie to bed quicker then their cold pizza! Everyone loves the taste.
And if you need another reason to try it, wouldn’t believe how much protein is in this bad boy if I told you. Well, believe it because I’m telling you. It’s packed with over 34 grams of NATURAL protein. Yes! Lean body I keep throwing pennies in the fountains for, HERE I COME (…don’t judge me)!
Keep in mind this Banana Bread Breakfast Smoothie is not only for breakfast. I usually use it to help me get my day started, but when I am looking for a meal replacement or an after workout shake, this smoothie is it.
