My Favorite Homemade Smoothies

Over the past two years I’ve found a LOVE for making homemade smoothies. I make them either on my way out the door before work, during the late afternoons on the weekends or before a road trip so I won’t be hungry on the road.
The main ingredients I use are:

Cacao powder, banana, mixed berries, strawberries, almond milk as a base, avocado for creaminess, ice, chia seeds, flax seeds, basil, spinach and peanut butter.

The key to any smoothie is to have a liquid base (ice or milk), veggie or fruit and something to make it thick like an avocado or banana. Adding the chia/flax seeds to any smoothie can help for digestive health.
My indulgent smoothie-Almond milk, cacao powder, banana, strawberries and peanut butter. Note-I only use a few strawberries as too many can overpower the entire smoothie.
My work smoothie-Almond milk, mixed berries, banana, basil and chia/flax seeds.
Others-Ice, spinach, avocado, berries and basil.

My Favorite Weekend Breakfast

Ever since I was young one of my favorite breakfasts to make on the weekends were Eggs (it was also one of the first things I learned to cook-alongside baking chocolate chip cookies!). Today I still love making eggs. I’ll cook two eggs and add an avocado and some fruit-strawberries or mixed berries and drink it with lemon water. When I add all of this to my plate it feels more indulgent rather than just having a bowl of cereal or yogurt like I do during the week.

It’s such an easy breakfast to make and while cooking I can get other things done like picking up around my home. It’s also a quick breakfast to make which takes less than ten minutes to make.

What’s your favorite breakfast? And do you have a go to breakfast on the weekends?
