Smoooooooothies!  Nearly every day, that’s my breakfast.  Thick, thin, green, orange, purple, lots, a little — your way.  I like to keep it simple with frozen fruit, juice and/or almond milk, fresh bananas, some greens, and vegan protein powder.  There are so many luscious ways to combine fruits and vegetables with various superfoods in a smoothie; when they turn out extra-delicious I’ll post them for you.  This morning’s is a triple berry deep fuschia easy-easy blend.  Coconut butter adds flavor and medium-chain triglycerides.  (yes, we need some fat to function!)  To pack this with protein, toss in a handful of hemp seed or a scoop of vegan protein powder.  (I like decadently sweet vanilla Spirutein.)  This is a nice hefty one-person smoothie.  Easy to double it, or…

thicken it (more fruit less liquid but good luck even with a Vitamix),

ramp up your nutrition score for the morning with greens  (most of my smoothies have greens),

turn it into dessert by using 1 c dark chocolate almond milk and lessening amount of cherry juice,

or play with amount of coconut butter/add flaked coconut for incredible flavor!
