I have recently been trying to get back on track with my eating, it is so hard to maintain a healthy diet over the holidays!
That being said, I have also been experimenting with the foods I eat, and in the process I have found a new favorite snack, a delicious banana smoothie!
This recipe is enough to make 8oz
You will need:
- 1 banana
- A few ice cubes
- 1tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp flax seeds
- 1/2 tsp honey
- (optional: coconut shreds)
All you have to do is combine all of the ingredients above and use your blender or nutribullet.
The chia seeds and flax seeds are optional, but I always add these into my smoothies to add a little healthy kick. If you are having trouble blending the smoothie, then add a little almond milk.
Another one of my all time favorite breakfasts and especially perfect for fall, a pumpkin banana smoothie! Even if you are not a huge fan of pumpkin you should give it a try, the pumpkin flavor is not to overwhelming, its the perfect balance! Yummmm
I usually try to put a few healthy additives in my smoothie to make it more nutritional, but the only required ingredients are the pumpkin, banana, milk, and honey. You can also change the amount of food you use depending on how much you want. The amounts I listed make a large smoothie, which I usually substitute for a whole meal and it super filling.
I use my nutribullet to make my smoothie, so I usually drink my smoothie from the blender cup provided, but you can add it in another cup to make it a little more presentable, or to save some for later. 🙂
- half a can of 100% pumpkin puree
- 2 bananas
- 2 cups of almond milk
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1 tbsp of shredded coconut
- 2 tbsp of chia seeds
- 1 tbsp of flax seeds
- 1/2 tsp of maca powder
- handful of ice
Enjoy and let me know how it tasted!
Breakfast, the most important meal of the day!
I always make sure I start my day off with a nice big breakfast, and I like to be quick about it. Therefore, my breakfast meal is usually the same every morning. But I am still not tired of it!

My Nature’s Path Oatmeal is by far my favorite. It only takes 75 seconds in the microwave and all you need is a 1/2 cup of water!
Once my oatmeal is done I take it out and add however much honey and cinnamon I am feeling. (Fun Fact: Use your local honey, it helps to build an immunity to some allergies in your area)
Mix it all up and add in your almonds and fruit!
I usually use blueberries, but I love to add banana and strawberry if I am out of blueberries.
Ahhh, the perfect quick and easy breakfast!
