Banana Chamomile Morning Smoothie

As I've said before, I am a creature of habit.  Whenever I make a breakfast smoothie, it's always the same.  Well, I'm trying to branch out a bit and when I came across this recipe the other day I knew it was the perfect opportunity to try something new.  It comes from a Vega Community blog post(I modified it slightly.  Be sure to check out the original - the picture is much nicer than mine.)  

This smoothie is cool, creamy, sweet, and satisfying.  You can use any non-dairy milk but the almond milk gives it a nice texture.  If you don't have VEGA, you can use another protein powder or skip it altogether.  After a weekend of indulging too much sugar and carbs, this felt like a healthy (and delicious) start to my day.

Banana Chamomile Morning Smoothie

1/2 cup chamomile tea, cold
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Frozen banana chunks (1-2 bananas)
1 cup ice
1 tsp. agave nectar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Blend everything until smooth and frosty. 

Makes 1 large serving.
