Creamy Morning Energy Drink

milk poster

I’m a busy mama and alllllll about simple.  This is just a variation on a classic smoothie, but it has only 3  ingredients.  I have it every mid-morning and it keeps me going till lunch.

1/2 frozen banana, broken into chunks

1 c. whole raw milk

1 T carob powder

Blend in a blender till smooth.  It will be like thick, creamy chocolate milk, really more drinkable than a smoothie.

From the milk you get: protein, enzymes, and healthy fat

From the banana and carob powder you get: natural sugars, vitamins, and minerals (carob is high in calcium and banana is high in potassium).

It’s the perfect energy drink for a busy summer morning!

    This recipe needs to be made – and soon. I do believe this would be the perfect fit for my daughter especially. She’s senior lifeguard who teaches swim and swims 1.5 miles a day in addition to running 3 miles a day (crazy) and as such always on the move and in need of quick and healthy meals/snacks. Thank you!

    On another note, oh boy do I have some catching up to do on your blog.

    On yet another note, may I please know where you find your blog pictures (the vintage ones). If they aren’t your own property, I’d love to use one on my blog from time to time.
