Well, loving breakfast isn't for me, but smoothies? Well, that's a different story altogether. And the blended beverage breakfast inspiration kicked into overdrive recently when I bought the January issue of Whole Living magazine, and spotted an array of fabulous smoothies gracing the front cover. Green tea and blueberries? Chamomile and banana? Orange ginger? Yes, please.
You, too, can now access those tempting smoothie recipes, which are now available on the website. I was so intrigued by two banana varieties in the list, I combined them to come up with this smoothie recipe. Think oatmeal and banana cookie topped with peanut butter, but in frozen smoothie form.
And I know what you're thinking. With temperatures hovering as low as they have been this year, who wants to indulge in frosty beverages for breakfast? Well, try this and I'm sure you'll see it's worth the frozen fingers.

1/2 cup almond milk
