This smoothie became such because we ran out of acai in our house - I know right - but it wasn't because we forgot to stock up. The Cairns distributor ran out for a few days. So that's awesome! B and I are working out magic and painting the town purple (berry)! And as a result this delicious brekkie smoothie was created.
Wanting to make something meaty enough for brekkie without feeling the hunger pangs creep back an hour later, I made sure there was a good amount of protein and fats, as well as other goodies for nutrition and flavour sake. I hope you like it!
What you'll need:
1 frozen banana
1 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup cashews
2 cups almond milk
1/4 cup dessicated coconut
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1 Tbsp almond butter
1 Tbsp coconut nectar
Blend til super smooth. Top with flaked coconut and extra blueberries. Serves 2.

Whip this up before running out the door, or put your feet up and really enjoy sipping this with your buddy and a good magazine.
