Breakfast Ice Cream

So I woke up with a strong desire for a smoothie breakfast.  Simple as that, I pulled out the blender and added a compilation of fruits and other good stuff.  Here it goes:

About 3/4 cup blood orange juice

3 dried, pitted, while dates

3/4 of a frozen banana

1 cup of frozen berries (blackberries, raspberries, blueberries)

Half an avocado

1 tsp of matcha powder 

A piece of cinnamon 

First I blended the juice and the dates, this just gives the dates a bit more attention so they actually dismantle rather than getting lost in the fiesta going on with all of the other ingredients.  It is really nice (probably because my blender isn’t top quality – hehe) because the dates turn into nibs, and because they are naturally sweet, they taste like little chunks of chocolate!! Yippee

Anywho, this smoothie turned out to have a sweet and tangy sorbet consistency, so I decided to whip up whip cream that works around my allergies.  Buffalo cream, with a teaspoon of pure and natural maple syrup, takes 20 seconds to form in the blender and it is F A B U L O U S !

So if you feel like channeling your inner summer as these last few winter days melt away, take a whirl at this fun treat (completely healthy and nutritious too!)
