I want to love green smoothies, really! My go-to breakfast choice is nearly always abyssmal (coffee and a cookie, anyone?). So, I’ve been experimenting with them for a few weeks.
I started with Heather (Beauty That Moves)’s basic recipe, and I’ve changed it up here and there. I’ve used soy milk, whole milk, and almond milk. I’ve done them with maple syrup, with agave nectar, and with no added sweetener. I’ve done strawberries + bananas, blueberries raspberries + bananas, and strawberries + tropical fruits. No matter how I switch it up, I nearly always have the same reaction: meh.
I suppose “meh” is an improvement over “blech,” which is what I thought I would think of green smoothies until I had the guts to try one.
The thing is, I expect more from my breakfast than mere adequacy. I think when it comes right down to it, what I expect is solidity. As in solid food. As in, I can’t get past the fact that my breakfast is a drink.
I don’t want to go back to cookies, so I need a good healthy alternative that I can (literally) sink my teeth into. I am thinking that it would be nice in a muffin format. Do any of you have a delicious muffin recipe that is also packed with all of the amazing good stuff a body needs to properly start the day? Would you be willing to share?
Thank you in advance for making my mornings happier 🙂
