I have been playing around with smoothie recipes. I wanted one that would be great for Breakfast. So I wanted it higher in calories and very filling. I made this the other day for snack. It was very filling, I could not eat much dinner that day has I was still full from this smoothie. So I made it again today for breakfast and took a photo. So I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. It is a nice break from eggs:)
