Sometimes it can be tough to get a healthy breakfast in. You all know how important breakfast is, it has been drilled into our brains since 7th grade health class. I find that I am always running around in the morning and barely have time to make a healthy breakfast that will keep me full and focused all throughout my morning. I have found that breakfast smoothies are my best bet when it comes to a fast and nutritional breakfast because all I have to do is throw a few ingredients in a blender, blend, and then toss it in a cup and go! Here is the recipe to my favorite breakfast smoothie, the blueberry oatmeal smoothie!

Ingredients:download

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ¾ cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tsp honey (this is optional)
  • And if you are using fresh un-frozen blueberries, 4-5 ice cubes

If you REALLY want to be prepared, measure out the blueberries, banana, and oatmeal the night before and place them into a plastic Ziploc baggie. Put the baggie in the freezer to keep the fruit frozen and in the morning all you have to do is toss those ingredients into the blender and then add the other few ingredients! It is super easy to make this smoothie, just add all of the ingredients together into the blender and blend until they are all chopped up! This recipe makes about 2 servings of smoothie, so give the rest to your siblings or parents! Trust me, they will love you for it. J

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

As some of you may know, I recently began living the vegan lifestyle. Vegan means no animal products and dairy products and things of that sort. I wanted to start living a healthier lifestyle! One of my favorite vegan snacks is bananas. If you follow my Instagram then you have seen the picture of me surrounded by bananas! I have been using all kinds of recipes to work bananas into my diet, and this smoothie is one of my findings! It is so nutritious and delicious!

Pineapple Whip Frozen Treat

If you have ever been to Disneyland and had a meal there, then you have probably dined on their delicious pineapple whip! If not, I’ll explain this delicacy to you. Pineapple whip is a dessert that has the same consistency as ice cream! The pineapple whip that is sold in stores and served at Disney is packed with fillers and artificial flavors, which are things we really like to avoid, so I learned how to make it on my own, and make a healthy version! This yummy treat can be served at any summer party or get-together, or even just as a sweet treat after dinner!

Ingredients:img-2250010-1-dole-whip1

–       1 fresh pineapple, cut into pieces

–       1 cup almond milk

–       1 tablespoon honey

Freeze your pineapple chunks a day ahead. Full your blender or food processor with the pineapple, and then add your almond milk and honey. Blend the mixture until your pineapple is now at an ice cream like consistency. Your pineapple whip is now ready to serve, and because it only has 3 healthy ingredients it is totally guilt free!

Enjoy this sweet, cool treat!

I bet when you think of sushi chopsticks, rice, and raw fish come to mind. Well, for this interesting after-school snack, bananas and Nutella are our sushi ingredients! Here is how to make your very own Nutella and banana sushi!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bananabanana sushi
  • 1 whole wheat tortilla
  • Nutella

I like making this sweet “sushi” in the morning before school because it is a quick and easy breakfast option! Lay your tortilla out flat and spread Nutella all over it. If you want to add some extra flavor and protein, you can add in some peanut butter too! Once you have spread your yummy Nutella over the tortilla, place a peeled banana in the center. Roll the banana up in the tortilla. The Nutella should help the tortilla stick to itself and keep it from coming un-rolled. Slice the wrapped banana into sections and then gobble it up!

So what do you think? Do you like my new spin on sushi?
