I am still going strong with the smoothie challenge. Here is my creation for day three:
Yes, it tasted better than it looked. In the mix:
1 cup So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk
1 frozen banana
1/8 cup peanut flour
2 TB cocoa powder
1 TB chia seeds
2 huge handfuls of spinach
1 cup frozen strawberries
Eaten with a spoon with Leapin’ Lemurs Crack Cereal for a fun topping. About this cereal, not too long ago I got six boxes delivered to my doorstep via Amazon subscribe and save. I just opened the second to last box. I cannot be trusted.
I calculated the nutrition facts for this smoothie (minus the cereal) to show just how nutrition-packed and calorie dense a smoothie can be. Hello healthy fats, protein and fiber! I typically aim for around 500 calories for breakfast, and with my cereal topping this was probably right on. With a good dose of fats from the avocado and chia seeds, and protein from the peanut flour, this smoothie will easily hold me over until lunch.
And now I am freezing cold. Who’s idea was it to do a smoothie challenge in the middle of winter? Oh. That’s right.
