breakfast of champions

May 6, 2011
Lately, I've been a bit obsessive about my morning fuel.  It's the first thing that pops in my head when my eyes open in the morning.

For me, weekday breakfasts have a few prerequisites.  They must be quick, they must not require a lot of ingredients and I'd prefer to use as few dishes as possible so I'm able to leave a clean kitchen (without a pile of dishes).  This totally fits the bill.
Plus, it incorporates two of my favorite foods- bananas and nut butter*!  If you have not yet experienced the splendor of creamy banana-nutty-goodness, you should definitely give it a go.  This one goes out to you, Dad.  My fellow banana-fanna-fo-fanna-lover for life!  

Almond Butter Banana Shake
1 chopped, frozen banana
1 cup almond milk (or any milk you'd prefer)
1 heaping tablespoon almond butter*

Toss the banana, milk and almond butter in your Magic Bullet* (or blender), blend, and drink!   Couldn't be easier.

@Kelli It's super quick- especially if you have a Magic Bullet! I just drink it straight from the cup it's blended in and go! :)

you just totally inspired me to make a shake using frozen banana i have left over from a vegan ice cream recipe i did once, and use coconut milk too, and whatever other toppings I have. Thanks for sharing, it looks so good, I can imagine chugging it and not caring about my milk shake mustache =]
