My Favorite Smoothie

If I could eat bacon and eggs for breakfast every day, I would. But I can’t, which I learned when I made breakfast for a living and gave myself an egg sensitivity. I eliminated them for 6 months or so, and was fine with them when they were reintroduced to my diet. Losing eggs from my diet would be devastating to me, so I try and keep it under control. Being grain-free definitely eliminates many common breakfast choices, and sometimes I’m just not in the mood for leftover dinner for breakfast.

Enter the smoothie.  It is not my first choice for breakfast from a nutritional standpoint, but when loaded with protein and fat, it definitely does the trick and holds me over.

This is something like the milkshake of smoothies.  Sweet, but not too sweet, and totally hits the spot.

1/2 C coconut water
2 T almond butter
1 banana (the ripeness will determine the sweetness of the smoothie to some extent)
1 1/2 T coconut manna
handful ice cubes

Throw it all in a blender, and mix it up!
