I don’t know how your mornings are at your house, but here they are a little hectic! You know… school lunches to prepare, tummies to feed, coffee to brew for a happy mamma. To kick-start the day on the right foot and keep myself energized I like to make myself (and the kids too) quick and healthy smoothies that I can sip on during the crazy mornings.

My favourite one is the 1-minute Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie from Weelicious which is loaded with protein, fibre, calcium and yummy chocolate! All the goodness in one cup! I often substitute the almond vanilla milk with cow’s milk and a splash of pure vanilla extract. So below is what I make myself in the morning.


  • 2 chopped frozen bananas (always have some in my freezer)
  • 1 tablespoon Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Almond Butter
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • splash of pure vanilla extract


Place all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. If you have a Vitamix, you get the creamiest smoothie you can get if you have picky eaters like me. Otherwise, make sure you puree your smoothie really well to get those hemp hearts well crushed and blended in.

I feel so much more energized and altogether happy (rather than starving, angry and grumpy – that’s me when I am hungry LOL… not cool), and so the mornings are calmer since I am calmer and more agreeable and pleasant.
