When is the last time you had dessert for breakfast? Be honest. 4 years? 4 months? 4 weeks? Should I even ask….4 days? I think it’s been about 4 weeks for me. That Chocolate Italian Love Cake was just too much to resist on an empty stomach 🙂
How about dessert that’s good for you that you can feel good about eating first thing in the morning? Post workout, maybe? Like I have said before, I have smoothies for breakfast at least 4 days a week. I try to switch up the recipe so I don’t get bored. I add whatever is in the frig or freezer that day and I usually end up with something pretty delicious. The only down side is that the blender is so loud all the children hear it and come running (or crawling for the balance impaired). Everyone wants a taste and sometimes I am left with a half a smoothie for me 🙂 It’s so good it’s gone fast! Here’s my latest go-to smoothie recipe!
1 Cup frozen cherries
1 TBSP cocoa powder
1 TBSP soy butter (or peanut butter or whichever nut butter you like)
1 cup milk (3/4 if you like a thicker smoothie)
Blend it all up and you are good to go! If you have some spinach on hand, throw it in there. You won’t even notice it! You could even blend up some oatmeal first and add it to your smoothie (just add a little more milk if you do). Enjoy! Let me know if you make it and what variations you like.
