A Fresh Start to the Day

I recently have taken a big liking to starting my mornings off with lots of fruit. I’ve noticed that it gives me lots of energy throughout the morning, and I’m very alert and ready to face any challenge at work! It is also very convenient, as there is a fresh fruit stand that I pass every day on my way to the office. I’ll frequently purchase delicious mangos, strawberries, bananas, peaches, even cantaloupe or pineapple! It is nice that my office kitchen comes equipped with a blender, so I can make a quick and easy smoothie with any of those fruits. But this morning I tried something slightly different: a banana frosty parfait!

I simply blended 3 frozen bananas with a little water to make a super creamy banana frosty, and mixed in blueberries, grapes, sliced banana (that’s what I had in the fridge) and topped with cinnamon and flax seeds for texture and healthy fats. It is DELICIOUS and so energizing! I plan to make this a lot. Even as a dessert! Try it out, change it up by adding in your own favorite fruits and nuts, and dig in :)
