Strawberry Vanilla Almond Protein Breakfast Smoothie (dairy-free, paleo,vegan)

20140317-111922.jpg

My family loves sleep. My husband gets up at the last possible second before having to get himself and our daughter ready, and she usually has to be woken up. I try to pretend I have to stay in bed with the sleeping baby. (Doesn’t usually work…) With all the sleeping going on, there doesn’t leave much time for a good breakfast. Charlotte was eating a whole wheat bagel in the car on her way to school most days and the empty calories weren’t our ideal for her breakfast. So we started making everyone a protein smoothie with flax seeds, almond butter, almond milk, banana and strawberry. She will down an entire mason jar if we let her and she is much happier when I go pick her up from school at lunchtime. (Usually with a little green juice for our car ride home.) Makes 2 large or 3 smallish portions.

Gather
2 cups frozen strawberries
2 bananas
1.5 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 tbsp soy vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp almond butter
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
Splash of apple juice

Blend and drink!
