Breakfast and Summer Smoothies!

Happy Hump Day!  It is my first day off in over 3 weeks and I am SO excited to have the day to get things ready for my trip HOME tomorrow!  I am SO excited to see friends, family, the horses, and THE WATER!  

The key to getting through these busy days and busy weeks is starting off on the right foot.  When I only have a few minutes for breakfast in the morning and need to grab something I can eat on the go, I almost always make a breakfast smoothie.  

I always keep frozen bananas in my freezer.  Unpeel them, break them in to smaller pieces, and throw them in a tupper ware container into the freezer and you have instant frozen bananas for smoothies- no ice cubes needed. 

My go to smoothis is frozen bananas, peanut butter, and almond milk.  I am not a fan of real milk so I always use almond milk or coconut milk.  My favorite brand by far is Almond Breeze. I usually use the unsweetened variety (45 calories!), but also enjoy the sweetened almond milks for my coffee and a milk shake.  I was SO excited to sample the Almond Coconut blend for my smoothie.  

On an unexpectedly snowy day in April, I decided to whip up a fun smoothie for breakfast using pineapple.  Whenever pineapples are on sale at the grocery store, I grab one, cut it into chunks, and throw it into the freezer for smoothies.  

(Olive was very interested)

This banana pineapple smoothie hit the spot on a snowy Salt Lake City day !  If I have spinach or kale in the fridge, I will throw that in there too and make a delicious green smoothie that is sweet, tasty and packed with some veggies :)

Thankfully spring is back in Salt Lake City, well, maybe even summer now that it is 80 degrees out today.  Try one of these smoothies on a hot summer day or for a great breakfast treat. 

Happy Wednesday!
