I have been having a smoothie for breakfast for about 6 months now. I have changed from a little blender making a simple smoothie shake to having way more ingredients. I added the old video below in case you wanted to see the beginner smoothie.
Usually I just add all the ingredients to the blender and my little one helps me out. This time I put the frozen and the dry ingredients in separate bags. I also make my own almond milk. This is cheaper. I don’t have to worry about the other almond milk going bad. There is less ingredients and it stays the same to me.
First I make “Chocolate almond milk” by taking the dry bag and adding water. There is 12 almonds, 3 teaspoons chia seeds, and 2 teaspoons chocolate. I put this with a cup and a half of water and a couple dates then blend. I add the dates for sweetness. They are a new find and I love them.
Then add the frozen bag: 1 scoop ice, 3/4 cup blue berries, and 1 banana. Then blend with the other ingredients (I like mine a little icy). Sometimes I add a little something green if I have something left over in the fridge but I don’t this week. When I bled it up all I really taste is chocolate icy so it tastes good to me. I usually give some to my daughter by putting in a couple strawberries before the chocolate. She likes strawberry better.
