Hello and Happy Friday!
I got an early start this morning thanks to the ever-playing to-do list in my head waking me up before 5…on my day off. I’m a morning person though so it doesn’t bother me. I have had an extremely productive day and can’t believe it’s already 2:00!
Before I continue on my trend of productivity I thought I’d share the tasty breakfast that started the day off…
Gasp! A diversion from our three breakfast rotation usual?? Can it be?
Yes indeed. In an attempt to clean out the freezer a bit, I threw together a smoothie with the frozen fruit I found in there.
Into the mix:
1 medium frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 container plain coconut milk yogurt
1/2 cup Dream Blends milk
unsweetened coconut (to sprinkle on top)
Blend everything together, top with coconut, enjoy!
This featured two new-to-me products that I picked up at Whole Foods yesterday.
The first, coconut milk yogurt:
While it is delicious it is SWEET. Despite the plain variety it still has a bunch of sugar. Will have to use sparingly.
The second: almond-cashew-hazelnut drink.
I love me some almond milk and this was similarly delicious. There were a few other varieties as well. Who knew?
Regardless the smoothie was thick and wonderful (not to mention a great color). On the side Z and I had a piece of spelt toast with almond butter and pumpkin pie spice.
It’s things like this that make breakfast my favorite meal of the day!
Now I want to know…
What time do you usually wake up on your days off? Do you sleep in? or Get up early to get things done?
