Ah, it’s time to get my eating back on track after Germany – I am excited to eat and drink home cooked things!
I have always been a milkshake fan. Whenever mum and dad used to take me out to lunch as a young kid I would always get a big silver cup of chocolate milk and a toasted sandwich. I still love “milkshakes”, but now I use some alternative ingredients plus a daily serving of fruit to make them even more delicious.
If you have followed me for some time you will know my preference is milk alternatives, such as coconut milk. I love the creamy texture and the taste really brings out the other ingredients I add into my breakfast smoothies. It’s important when you have a liquid breakfast to manage portions, so make sure you measure things out properly. I really love that Vitasoy says how many calories are in a serving size. There is nothing worse than standing in a supermarket aisle dividing things by 4.2 to try and work out how many calories are going to be in things! Just 75 calories in a serving of Vitasoy means there’s room to move for your other ingredients.
Quick little story: I shot Vitasoy’s campaign a couple of years ago, so now my family and friends call it “Ally’s milk” – I’ve included a shot below! Such a fun shoot in Byron Bay!
For old time’s sake, I thought I would put together recipes for “chocolate banana” and “strawberry” milkshakes, still equally delicious and with fruit. These are my “oh-my-god-it’s-7am-and-I-need-breakfast-now” recipes. I tend to grab ingredients and hope for the best. And that is what these two are -the best! I love serving them in drink bottles as I can take them with me in the car or train when I sleep past my alarm!
- Cocao spread
- Coconut milk
- avocado ( you only need a teaspoon)
Blend together. Serve over ice. I bet you inhale this! So good!
This kind of tastes like coconut rough – it’s insane and really hits the spot.
- Strawberries or whatever berry is in season
- Chia Seeds
- Protein Powder
- My Skinny Bliss for added nutrients
Blend together. Serve over ice. Drink up the goodness!
