Sublimely Silent Breakfast

Q: What do you do when it is 10am, you still haven't eating breakfast, you've run 4 miles and need some restorative calories, and you are about to get on a conference call and don't want to be slurping and chomping into the phone?
A: You whip up a silently sip-able and delicious breakfast in the form of a smoothie.  Mine is protein and potassium packed, making it a great recovery drink, and I split it with little J, who got kind of hot on the run himself.  He sucked it down and asked for more, so this was a win-win all around.
SMJ and Little J's Favorite Smoothie
6 ice cubes
1/2 banana
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup calcium-fortified vanilla soy milk
1 teaspoon honey
1 heaping tablespoon almond butter
small handful blueberries
Throw all ingredients in blender.  Blend until combined.
Serves 1.5

*Please note: I had no time for photos this morning... I was truly on the fly.  So I found the beautiful photo above on All Recipes, where it illustrates a recipe for a Banana-Peach Buttermilk Smoothie which looks divine... try both recipes while the weather is still toasty!


  1. Wow - this sounds delicious!! And seeing as it's in the 90s yet again up here in crazy ol' VT, I hope to whip this up soon. Plus, I love the name!! :-)

  2. Sound yummy! I actually had a smoothie this morning because I was late and so I drank it on my drive into work. :-)
