Why is this a survival recipe?

I love using almond-coconut milk in breakfast smoothies, because it is so light and fresh it really gives that extra element to a traditional breakfast smoothie. I use fresh or frozen fruit depending on what I have in the fridge, and I’ve got a substantial, quick, and easy breakfast in under 5 minutes.

Strawberry and Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Servings: 1-2 people
Prep-Time:  5 minutes
Cook-Time: 5 minutes

Why is this a survival recipe?

I discovered smoothies almost immediately after I bought a blender. As a commuter, breakfast used to be a drive-thru coffee and a doughnut. If you have a blender, this is no longer your only quick and easy option.

Smoothies are versatile, fresh and can even be made the night before if you’re always in a rush like I am. Almost anything can be made into a smoothie, and it is so much fun to blend up new recipes.

Some of my favorites are strawberry banana, peanut butter and banana, mixed berry, ginger root and vanilla, green apple with spinach and many more.
