Okay, I know I have been on a bit of a smoothie kick lately but bare with me.  Fall is rapidly descending in my neck of the woods and will bring many soup, stew and bread recipes to the blog.  At the moment though, the speed and ease of smoothies have taken over my world.  Or at least my breakfasts.

With that said, I feel the need to share my new and improved chocolate-strawberry concoction.  Yesterday’s post included a very basic smoothie involving chocolate green super food powder and strawberries.  While that was good, I saw fit to kick things up a notch this morning.  And so, the following smoothie was born.

Chocolate Sunshine Smoothie

2 scoops Amazing Grass Chocolate Green Super Food

5 Strawberry juice cubes

½ cup frozen Strawberries

½  a Banana (fresh or frozen)

1 Orange (juiced)

¾ cup Water

Put all of the ingredients in the blender, hit puree and enjoy!  As with my other smoothies I don’t add any sweetener but you can always use a bit of agave nectar if you like.  Also, feel free to up the amount of water if you want a thinner smoothie.

All I can say about this smoothie is… YUMMM!  It was so tasty and it kept me going all morning.  What more could you want from a breakfast on the go?

The rest of my meals were pretty run of the mill.  Peanut butter and raspberry jam rollups in whole wheat tortillas with cucumbers and humus for lunch.  Dinner was a mixed green salad with lemon, tater tots and a great veggie patty I found at Andy’s Market called Oregon Harvest Veggi Patti.  These veggie patties are made by Chez Gourmet from Marie and are delicious.  I was really excited to find them and have them as a ready made replacement to my usual black bean burger.

The Oregon Harvest Veggi Patties have all kind of tasty ingredients.  Organic Forbidden Rice, sweet potato, Anasazi beans, carrots, mushrooms, pecans, onions, roasted corn, broccoli and celery just to name a few.  Are you drooling yet?  I am and I just finished eating one.  All of that is available in your freezer section without any animal by products to speak of.  Three cheers for quick and easy dinner solutions!
