My Milkshake Is Better Than Yours
Here is what fuels me most mornings around here.
Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
Variations: Sometimes I add Greek Yogurt or I'll put in honey if I only have half a banana.And I used milk when I run out of coconut milk.
I soak the oats in the milk to soften them while I take the dog for a walk or make lunches for the kids. I add a spoonful of cocoa powder, about a tsp of vanilla, one whole banana and a few spoonfuls of nut butter. A few ice cubes and I let the blender rip until it's all good.
It reminds me of a better version of the Carnation Instant Breakfast (you're gonna love it in an instant!) I used to have when I was a kid.
Keeps me full until lunch and it's a great treat after my early AM workouts.
