I'm one of those weird people that love drinking smoothies at ANY time of the year. Over the weekend in Canberra, the temperature reached a mighty top of 6 degrees. That didn't stop me as I had 3 smoothies on Sunday. If I'm upset or tired, my partner knows a smoothie (or some rainbow colours) will cheer me up. If I'm in a rush, I'll have a smoothie. If I need some down time, I'll have many many smoothies.
Smoothies are medicine for my soul. Maybe it's because they require minimal effort (no chewing, yay!). Maybe I love how they are quickly digested but can leave you full for a while (depends on your toppings). Maybe I just love the idea of incorporating chocolate things into main meals.
To cheer myself up on a Monday morning, I created a wild breakfast smoothie spread with all of my favourite things. This is probably the most simple recipe on my blog but that's the great thing about smoothies! I thought I'd share it with you because smoothies are such a staple in my life!
