Chocolate Strawberry Banana Breakfast Shake

9 Jun

When I get up in the morning, I really don’t leave myself much time. For some reason, I’ve convinced myself that getting up at the very last possible second and then rushing to get ready leaves me more rested than just getting up 30 minutes earlier! Oh well, it’s logical in my world!  =)

Chocolate Strawberry Banana Shake

That’s why this chocolate strawberry banana breakfast shake is perfect for me – I can throw the handful of ingredients into the blender, turn it on, and breakfast is done and easy to bring in the car. Plus, it’s so good that I make it on the weekends when I have plenty of time to sit and eat if I want to. It’s also very customizable – add ins are welcome! Just a few days ago, I started adding a spoonful of peanut butter to the shake….delicious!

Shake Ingredients

Ingredients

Adapted from the Lowfat Vegan Chef

1 banana (spotted and slightly brown makes for a sweeter shake)

5-6 strawberries

1 TB of cocoa

2 TB flax

1/4-1/2 cup of non-dairy milk (I use almond milk)

4-5 ice cubes

Directions

1. Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. That’s it!

I found this shake to be just sweet enough with a TB of cocoa in it, but you can always add agave nectar for a bit more. If you would like to skip the ice cubes altogether, you can always  freeze your bananas (I have not tried it yet, but I’ve read that it works really well). Hopefully this chocolate strawberry banana shake will be the easy morning treat that you are craving!
