I've spent all morning in bed finishing my book. I just couldn't put it down until it was done. So it has been a very slow, indulgent and lazy morning. When I eventually did emerge down to the kitchen I was starving and desperate for a very big smoothie, so instead of grabbing a glass I went for a bowl. I also thought I would try mixing up a few different ingredients and what I came up with didn't look so amazing (colour is a light chocolate mouse with a similar mousy texture) but tasted just awesome.
(By the way the book I was reading is Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, recommended by a friend and I would definitely pass on the recommendation!)
Ingredients (serves 1 very hungry person):
1 large avocado
1 cup of almond milk
4 cubes of ice
1 cup of blueberries
1 tablespoon of raw almond butter
1 teaspoon of raw cacao powder
1 handful of kale
1 teaspoon of wheatgrass powder
1/2 lemon peeled and pipped
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of chia seeds
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
If you are looking for a satisfying breakfast this is it! I am full and ready to start the day. Today I am making a Raw Blueberry Cheesecake for the first time to take to a friends baby shower tomorrow. It is vegan, dairy and gluten free so I am excited to showcase how delicious clean food can be! Lets hope the reviews are good... Thank you again Deliciously Ella!
