Breakfast is a struggle for me. I want coffee followed by more coffee. Food is good but I want a huge glass of water, maybe a smoothie and yes, more coffee. I’ll often take a banana to go and I can always eat peanut butter (or almond butter, cashew butter, etc).
This recipe idea came to me when a (hot) cappuccino I'd been drinking was left alone and turned cold. I threw it into the blender with these other breakfast items and now I give you the Daybreak Smoothie. Coffee is included and encouraged, although not necessary!
It's December 27. How was your Christmas? How is hanukkah going so far?
There have been years where I've dreaded the holidays and been grateful for them to be over. This year, thanks to my family coming to my home in Seattle and the Advent project, I was excited, mostly prepared, and truly enjoyed Christmas. We visited restaurants, prepared and enjoyed home cooked meals, reheated leftovers, snuck snacks, and so on...
Today we took my parents to the airport and I was ready for a cool, refreshing, and healthy smoothie. I knew I had a great idea, then I took it to the next level by adding a double shot of espresso!
