Being a stay-at-home-mom is more time consuming than you might imagine and finding time to eat can sometimes be a challenge. Lately I have been turning to quick and easy meals that take a matter of minutes to put together and a huge bonus if I can eat and nurse at the same time. Lately my go to meal for both breakfast and lunch has been a chocolate Vega Energizing Smoothie.
You can just take the smoothie powder and shake and go but I love to blend mine with a few other ingredients to bulk it up and make a real meal.
Chocolate-Almond Butter-Banana Vega Shake
- 10 oz unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup ice
- 1 medium banana
- 1 scoop Vega Energizing Smoothie– chocolate flavored (you could use any flavor)
- 1 tablespoon natural unsweetened almond butter
Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth.
I love to add the ice to the smoothie because it make is more like a chocolate milkshake which makes it super indulgent. This is the basic recipe the I use but I often add some frozen fruit instead of the ice when I have it on hand such as blueberries or raspberries and if you have frozen banana you could use that as well.
What is your go to shake or smoothie?
