Taylor's Breakfast in Your Cup
After you get out of bed in the morning, drink a couple glasses of water with a little lemon juice. When you want a change or are short of time, begin your day with breakfast in your cup. You can make this nutrient-rich drink with mostly frozen ingredients, so they can always be readily available. You can also use it to replace lunch or dinner a couple times a week. Chia seeds and pea or hemp protein are available on the internet and in some food stores.
- 1 16 oz can of pure coconut water
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- ½ frozen banana
- ¼ frozen avocado
- 2 Tbsp pea protein
- 2 Tbsp greens powdered
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp hulled hemp seeds
- 1 Tbsp uncooked rolled oat flakes
- Aloevera juice as needed to fill the blender jar to desired size of smoothie
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until completely smooth.
Note: I pour half into a thermos-type container and refrigerate for the next day.
Pour into a glass and enjoy.
* Some recommend using pea protein rather than typical soy-based or dairy-based protein powders for a healthier drink.
