Good Morning Chunky Monkey Milkshakes
My boys love this quick morning breakfast and it is loaded with potassium, iron, and protein. When I introduce new foods to my children I start with something fail-proof. The first time they tried this shake it had these ingredients:
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
2 bananas (I like to use my freezer bananas)
2 teaspoons of blackstrap molasses or 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
3 ice cubes
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend till smooth.
In time I added other ingredients:
1/4 cup of organic, fresh roasted peanut butter or 1/4 cup of tofu
1 teaspoon of ground flax seeds
Flax seed is a wonder grain. Stocked full of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, high in most B vitamins, and magnesium. It’s easy to sneak into meals, just don’t overdo it. I don’t use more than a tablespoon per kid a day.
They love this breakfast and think it’s a big treat. Milkshakes for breakfast, what beats that? I know it’s healthier than cereal or any other processed breakfast. A good start of the day for all of us.
