Smoothies are great, huh? Have ’em breakfast, have ’em for lunch, or yes even for dinner (like me). They’re quick, healthy, and super customizable, too. I love to try to replicate actual proper meals and make them into delicious smoothies. My French Toast Smoothie was particularly successful and got rave reviews!
French toast…done, now I’m onto muffins! We all want that great taste of french toast or a decadent breakfast muffin, but perhaps we could do without the flour, oil, and sugar involved. That’s where smoothies swoop in to save the day…or at least my sweet tooth!
This thick and creamy chocolate banana smoothie tastes just a like breakfast muffin!
