Breakfast Shakes

The quickest, most refreshing breakfast, or lunch.  Good in the cooler weather, simply divine in the summer!

vegan, gluten free, healthy breakfast, protein shake

Breakfast shakes

Protein shake: 
1 batch fresh almond milk (2-3cups)    
1 T chia seeds
2 T almond butter
1 banana, peeled & frozen.

Fruit shake:
1 batch fresh almond milk
1 T chia seeds
1 ½ cups frozen fruit

Blend in a Vitamix blender until smooth.  Enjoy.
Options for either shake:  Replace almond milk with plain soymilk, adding 4-5 pitted dates.  For extra sweetness, add 1 T honey.
Nice fruit combos:  strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, & blackberries (aka-thimbleberries) 2, 3, or all 4 together.
                                       Peaches& blueberries 
                                       Mango & young kale leaves (worth making just for the color!)
Other good additions: Add ½ avocado, 2T hemp seeds, 2 or 3 ice cubes, and/or a small handful of any fresh greens from the garden for the really adventurous.
