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.

Frozen banana chunks (1-2 bananas)
