One of the things I’m loving lately is making food: breakfast, lunch and dinner. It gives me a sense of control and accomplishment in these weird times. Since we limit our shopping to food and this only to about two times a week, I’m being more creative than ever with creating food from stuff I have at home.
There are a lot of “happy accidents” happening, as Bob Ross would say. I “inveted” a few recipes that I’m so proud of that I want to share it here. First up: my coffee breakfast smoothie.
I’m no stranger to breakfast smoothies that keep you full and I’ve even turned those into popsicles. (How cool is healthy ice-cream for breakfast?! Yeah, I know. It was all my idea and you’re welcome.)
This recipe is cool with the caffeine I need and with oats in it that keep me full through the morning. It’s even vegan (ha, check this off my New Year resolution list!).
- a frozen banana
- 5 Tbsp coffee
- 1 cup oat milk
- 3 table spoons grated oats
- Put all ingredients in a blender and blend well.
- Serve ice cold.
I’ve taken a bunch of photos and one where you also can see my face. Now weeks after taking those, these make me giggle. I look so tired! If that’s not just on point for this recipe with coffee, I don’t know what is.
Are you more a coffee or tea person in the morning? I used to drink only tea but with my partner working from home (and making coffee in the morning), I’ve changed my routine.
Now. Carry on!
