It’s a new year. It’s a perfect way to kick off ‘something new’.
What better way to kick off a great new year than starting things off to a great start?!? How do you do that? With an awesome breakfast smoothie that will jump start your day.
I flipped through my copy of Smoothies for Life! to find a smoothie that would be a great breakfast to get me through the day. It’s so cold here (high of 23 today!) so a cold smoothie might not sound like a pleasant way to start the day but I still pulled through. I prepped most of last night- froze my sliced banana, powders in my magic bullet cup- so I just needed to add milk and blend. I ran down stairs to the kitchen did this as fast as I could before running back up to the hot bathroom to take a boiling shower. Really… the knob is all the way over and I love it. Maybe that is why my skin is extra dry? Whatever. So while I got dressed I had my breakfast and coffee all in one and I was ready to kick some ass at my first day back at work since Dec. 21st. ouch.
Amanda embraced ‘something new’ by reaching for a new bottle of bourbon she had. I totally like her style. She changed things up and made a delightful Mississippi Mud Cake with Espresso Bourbon Glaze. Sounds amazing right?!?!

Yummy! I need to add cocoa powder to my smoothies more often!
