It's my day off. I didn't want the same old hurried oatmeal or tea and toast I have on many work days. I wanted a smoothie for breakfast and I was thinking decadent but nutritarian. This is what I ended up with:
Combine in a blender:12 oz Lite Chocolate Silk (soy milk)
1/2 c. cooked quinoa
1/2 c. blueberries
1/2 c. ice
I was resigned to eating it whether it was good or not and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was delicious! I sipped it as I read my emails this morning and fully enjoyed my breakfast.
While I'm on the subject of Silk Lite Chocolate here's a favorite late night treat: Mexican hot chocolate:
Start with Silk Lite chocolate soy milk and add some cinnamon, vanilla, and a tiny bit of cayenne pepper. Heat in a mug in the microwave. Yumm.
