You know those mornings when you’re in such a big rush that you don’t have time for breakfast? Sounds like such a cliche, but that’s because it’s so true. No time to clean, wash, chop and prep ingredients to whip up a smoothie…No time to even gulp down a bit of that overnight chia pudding. I’m referring to those mornings when you snoozed that alarm again and again until you were left with 5 minutes to shower and be out the door. This ‘recipe’ is for those mornings. You welcome! Because no matter how busy, I strongly believe you should not skip breakfast.
So, what to do? Well, as always, preparation is key. You cannot simply snap you fingers and have breakfast ready in two seconds when you need it most. When you know you have a busy week ahead or if you know you’re snoozing in bed most mornings, the easiest thing to do is to make a big batch of chia pudding on Sunday evening. Enough for all five working days. Even if you know you don’t have time to sit down and eat the chia pudding, I’ll share a tip with you below. Also, peel and cut into quarters 5 bananas and pack each banana in a zip lock bag. Put those bags in the freezer on Sunday evening. Aaaand you’re 99.99% done – you just sorted your breakfasts for the week. Seriously, in 2 minutes. Now, the only thing you still need to do in the morning is …see ‘recipe’ below. Yes, I’m using the term ‘recipe’ quite loosely here.
Two seconds chia pudding smoothie
- 1.5 cups already made chia pudding (I almost always use this Coconut chia pudding recipe)
- 1 frozen banana, pre-peeled and pre-cut into chunks
- optional: if you have anything else right next to your blender, ready to be used, feel free to add. I also added a handful of dry blueberries to this smoothie (thus the purple hue) and sprinkled some granola I got from the lovely bunch over at GoodnessmeBox
- Add all the ingredients to a blender, blitz for few seconds, pour into a jar and get busy with your day, while enjoying a healthy breakfast on the way.
