Accidental Dessert For Breakfast

Quick post before my full fledged 5 week update.

As you may or may not know, I make my green smoothies with frozen bananas.  One of my many endearing idiosyncrasies consists of only eating fresh bananas within a two to three day window of proper ripeness before they gross me out and I will not eat them.  At this point, they are best suited for baking or smoothies, so I freeze them since I don’t bake.  Although I have recently been browsing online info about vegan baking, for the record.  That aside, I used all my kale and collards for my salad greens, so I was looking around for a suitable breakfast in my relatively bare cupboards and came up with the most awesome accidental dessert for breakfast!  I suppose some might call it a smoothie, but I put it in a bowl and ate it with a spoon, so I suppose it’s sorbet.  I realize I did not invent this, but I am still impressed with myself.

I put the following in a blender:
1.5 frozen bananas
1-2 c. of frozen raspberries (any mixture of berries would be great)
1/2 c. of water - enough to allow it to blend but not get too liquidy
optional - 1 Tb. of that heavily processed So Delicious brand french vanilla coconut milk creamer that I reserve for special occasions 
optional - vanilla extract ( do not use too much or it's gross)
optional - 1 tsp chia seeds

 

Top with a few raw almonds or fresh berries, yum!

 

blend and WHAAA???  The most amazing, thick, vegan ice “cream” ever!

Along with that I had a small Ezekiel sprouted tortilla (I know it has soy in it, but I realized this after I bought it and my fridge is pretty bare right now, and I was hungry) with some ground peanuts and honey from the farmer’s market (I don’t call it peanut butter because it is not pre-made; does not have added oils, salt, or sugar and is ground to order into the container from straight peanuts – wish they had raw!)

What a heavenly dessert.

I am going to post about salads as well.  Mine have been intensely flavorful lately without drenching them in dressings.  But for now, I have to get ready for work.
