Make Your Own Breakfast Shake

It is said that the most important meal of the day is breakfast and for most of us the mornings are the busiest and most hectic part of the day.  We have to get ready get ourselves ready for the day and us parents also have to get our children ready too.  I also workout in the morning as well.  Those few hours before we actually walk out into the world are packed with tons of tasks that must be completed to ensure a great day, but we must make sure that our bodies are given the proper fuel to make it through.  My son and I don’t not enjoy eating food early in the morning so I have started making our own breakfast shakes that we can take with us and drink in the car on our way to start our days.  The breakfast shake I make has the same “base”, but I will sometimes toss in some “additions” depending on my mood.

If you would like to try it, this is what you’ll need:

*As with all my recipes, I rarely use measurements.  Mix according to your preferences

IBourgie’s Breakfast Shake

A blender (the single serve blenders work well and you can find them for around $20.  If you are making shakes for the whole family, us a larger one)

Almond Milk

A teaspoon of Coconut Oil

Cocoa powder (optional)

Ground flax seeds

Nut butter (almond, peanut, hazelnut, etc.)

Greek yogurt (vanilla or plain)

Blend all ingredients in your blender and enjoy!!  Vegans may substitute the yogurt for a soy yogurt, leave it out or add a banana to provide a thicker and creamier texture.  Also feel free to add a fruit of your choice.  This recipe is great as it is.  It is loaded with protein will keep you satisfied.
