Breakfast of Champions (and everyone else)

S&T2

I know previously posted a watermelon smoothie, but it’s my new favorite thing and I do what I want! I’m really the opposite of a watermelon fan but in smoothies they become magical.

For the Smoothie:

Watermelon

Figs

Banana

Nectarine

Almond milk (or any non dairy milk)

OJ (the drink not the murdered)

Ice

*I usually use strawberries and it gives it a more vibrant color and really refreshing taste but I was out today.  Also I only used half a banana because the taste can over power the other flavors sometimes. But add in whatever you like! No rules here!

For the Toast:

Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin  Bread (or whatever)

Vegan Cream Cheese (I used Trader Joe’s)

Nectarine and Figs (or any fresh fruit)

Salt and Brown sugar

S&T 1 S&T3S&T$

For the smoothie: Blend everything but the ice then add the ice (crushed ice blends better without the big chunks) and then give another quick blend.

For the Toast: Toast the bread, add cream cheese then fruit. I found the figs were not as flavorful as I had hoped so I added a tiny pinch f salt and a pinch of brown sugar over the top and WOW; It really brought the flavor out.

This is my go to breakfast for the week.

*Not pictured is the handful of potato chips I also had with breakfast*

Banana Oatmeal and Watermelon Smoothie

I am a fan of oatmeal and like to make big pots and portion it into jars to eat throughout the week, but as of late I find that I have been making too much and not finishing it. I found this single serving of baked oatmeal on angie and james do stuff  who adapted the recipe from chocolate-covered katie. It was sooo good and I can eat all day everyday but this filled me up really fast (with the smoothie too).

So here is my go at the oatmeal along with a refreshing watermelon smoothie (and I HATE watermelon but this was delicious!)

ImageHere is what ya need:

Preheat oven to 220°

1 small banana, mashed
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/8 t ground nutmeg
1/8 t of salt
1/4 t vanilla
Just under a Tablespon on vegan sugar 1 t chia seeds 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats 1/4 cup milk of choice. I use vanilla almond milk

Mash your banana until it’s not lumpy

add all ingredients except oats and milk.

mix together with a fork

add oats and milk and mix again

pour into ramekin (I’ve been looking to use that thing!)

bake for 20 minutes and CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP

Now you have some time to clean up and when you have a few minutes of bake time remaining you can make your smoothie!

ImageWhat ya need:

No measuring here, dudes, smoothies don’t play by the rules.
Raspberries
Strawberries
Watermelon (more of this than the berries)
Banana
Almond Milk (or whatever you prefer)
OJ
Vanilla,
Chia Seeds
Ice

Directions: BLEND! I like to blend everything then add the crushed ice and give it another quick blend so the ice doesn’t get too small and melt.
