Do you prefer to eat or drink your breakfast?
In the summer, I usually blend a green smoothie for breakfast.
But now that's it's fall, I like to change it up. Since I'm short on time in the morning getting my kid ready for school, I like to make smoothies. Really, you can't go wrong with smoothies for breakfast.
They're quick to make as long as you've got everything on hand.
My go-to is this super creamy, slightly sweet and filling SunButter Banana Date Smoothie that even my eldest quite enjoys. I don't have to struggle with him on making sure he eats his breakfast -- which HAS been harrowing at times.
What you'll need are:
- Creamy SunButter
- rolled oats
Throw everything into the blender and you've got a delicious cold smoothie that will get you ready for the day ahead.
I like using frozen bananas for the smoothies, but you can always use fresh if you've got that on hand. Frozen bananas give a much creamier texture and is a good way to store bananas that are getting too ripe too fast. I've always got frozen bananas because I never know when my kids want an icy sweet treat.
