Keepin’ Breakfast Cold

Today’s the big day!

Ryan and I are leaving in 45 minutes for the 3rd Annual Baldwin Park Doggie Derby, where Sadie will race to uphold her title as Doggie Derby Champion. 😀

Since the high in Orlando is 91 degrees today, I wanted to keep my breakfast cold.

A strawberry banana smoothie sounded perfect-o! 


I was in the mood to eat, not drink, this morning, and made sure to make the smoothie extra thick so I could enjoy it out of a bowl with a spoon.

Eat Up!

My strawberry banana smoothie bowl contained:

  • 1 c. frozen strawberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop All the Whey strawberry protein powder
  • 2 tsp. xanthan gum
  • Cold water
  • 5 ice cubes

While my smoothie was blending, I also made a batch of apple cinnamon pancakes for Ryan.

Of course I save one little ‘cake for myself!

I’m off to get dressed for a day in the sun with lots of dogs!

Question of the Day

  14. Good luck Sadie!! My favorite smoothie is chocolate banana- can’t go wrong with a classic!

  15. Have fun today!!!!

    Smoothies are awesome, but I can never seem to make one and feel satisfied by this for just breakfast. I usually eat them as a snack or with lunch or something.

    My favorite smoothie is one with mango, kiwi, spinach and blueberries!

  16. Tropical smoothies that taste like a pina colada are my pick. I also like a good berry mix.

  17. My favorite are my peanut butter butterscotch smoothies! 🙂

  18. Your smoothies always look soooo good! I’m curious about the xantham gum!!

  19. I’m all about the glo-ing Green Monster smoothies lately. Have you given spinach a try?
