BreakFAST (emphasis on the “fast”)

So, I thought I’d share my favorite quick breakfast – it’s actually pretty much my favorite work-day breakfast, since I can enjoy it sitting at my table reading my Kindle or driving to work in my car or even in snatched sips while getting ready in the morning:

1 c crushed ice

1 c plain soymilk or almondmilk (or you can use vanilla, I just tend to use the kind with about 60 cal/cup – I don’t use unsweetened)

1 – 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (I like to splurge and use Ghirardelli, but plain old Hershey’s cocoa is fine, too)

1 ripe banana

Combine all of the above and blend (I use my handy-dandy Magic Bullet when I’m just making this for me, or my Vitamixer if I’m making more).  I don’t know why, but something about the sweetness of the banana and the chocolatelyness of the cocoa powder make this seem like a treat every day.  It keeps me going for a good 2-3 hours, and if I get hungry before lunch a supplement of fresh fruit or yogurt mid-morning fills in the gaps. 

It’s strange – I’m not actually a fan of milk-based smoothies, and I definitely don’t go for the ‘smoothies’ that are basically milkshakes with an extra serving of fruit, but I tend to really enjoy simple smoothies made with just soymilk and fruit.  My favorite ‘retail’ smoothie (ie, not homemade) is one at a local bakery that consists solely of frozen mango, strawberries, and bananas blended with soymilk.  Sooo good.
