Zero Waste Smoothies

Smoothies are delicious, healthy, and easily portable. I used to make one every morning but fell out of the habit when I became a teacher. In fact, many of my healthier habits have been in hibernation since teaching; I should make more of an effort to bring them back.

When I have time to enjoy my mornings, I like to make a smoothie and coffee.

Luckily I froze a lot of fruit this summer and stored them in glass for future, sustainable smoothies.

My smoothie base:

1 frozen banana

1/2 to 3/4 cup homemade cashew milk

2 Tablespoons peanut butter bought in bulk in my own container

1 cup frozen berries of choice

Blend well!

If I happen to have greens on hand, I’d throw some in, but I rarely have any so I don’t worry about it.

This might seem obvious, but sometimes we all need to have a place to start. Breakfast seems like a natural starting place to me. 🙂

Peace and love,
