Go Get 'Em Smoothie

This is truly a weekday special: a breakfast that combines food and drink for people who don't feel they've even got time to sit down in the morning. If the person-in-a-hurry is miniature in stature, and not progressed to caffeine intake, then replace the camp coffee with a tablespoonful of peanut butter. Extra protein and ultra delicious. I keep overripe bananas, peeled and cut into four, in bags in the freezer, which helps give ice-creamy bulk to the smoothie and dispense with the need for ice.

    This is one of my all-time favorite quick breakfast recipes! It seriously only takes 5 minutes and you get a nutritious and satisfying breakfast on the go. I love how the bananas are frozen so you don't have to worry about using your bananas before they get too ripe and it gives the smoothie a thickness that doesn't water it down once it's melted. Surprisingly, I found the instant espresso in my local grocery store and it is a nice contrast to the sweetness and gives you a little extra kick to get going! I STRONGLY suggest this recipe!
