His and Hers Breakfast Beverages

>> Thursday, August 18, 2011

My mornings usually go one of two ways. Either I wake up feeling wonderful. Or I drag myself out of bed feeling not-so enthusiastic to greet the day. Today -- already at 7 AM -- my allergies are terrible and I have a nagging headache, so I most definitely started the day feeling the latter of the two.

The cats don't seem much better . . .


But we're not all feeling icky. Stephen sprung right up, ready to finish various projects -- including painting the entire first floor of our house. More on THAT sometime soon. Oh, and he also completely reorganized our kitchen on Monday!

Anyway, when I'm not feeling well, I like to drink hot chocolate. Even if the forecast calls for temperatures in the mid 80s. The following is my favorite recipe from when I was younger -- veganized. The second recipe is Stephen's feeling-great-I-must-eat-greens-for-breakfast smoothie.


MICROWAVE HOT COCOA (VEGAN)

What you'll need . . .
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar in the Raw (or sugar)
  • 1 cup almond milk (unsweetened)

Method . . .
  1. In a large mug, whisk together the cocoa powder, sugar, and 3 tablespoons of the almond milk.
  2. Then add the rest of the almond milk and stir well.
  3. Put mug in the microwave and heat on high for 1 minute. Then stir. Heat for an additional minute and stir again.

GREET-THE-DAY GREEN SMOOTHIE

What you'll need . . .
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • Frozen banana
  • 1 solid handful of kale
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 1 scoop Midori Greens (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats, uncooked

Method . . .
  1. Put everything into your blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Add a bit of maple syrup for sweetness, if you like.
So, good morning. And hope your day is going better than mine is!
