Blue Breakfast Shakey

This is part 1 of my 'menu planner' that my bestie Vonnie asked me for. This shakey is great any time of day but I usually have one for breakkie. They are awesome because you can put anything in them, even bacon if you really want to.

I call them shakey's because smoothie sounds like a type of pooh, or a misogynist or something.

Shakies are vegan or veggo unless you put in the bacon. I don't use milk or soy as they are packed with carbs, which is what I am avoiding at the mo. So almond milk, cream, any nut milk, coconut milk. I sometimes like to add a raw egg. It makes me feel like Rocky Balboa.

I also usually use protein powder. My friend Jack, who has lots of muscles, gave me a huge jar of the stuff because he didn't like the flavour. Pfft, it doesn't have any flavour Jack. You can get pea or soy protein or whey and a bunch of other ones but don't get flavoured ones or ones with loads of additives. I like the pea because it is absolutely flavourless and has nothing else added. It does add a slight graininess to the shakey but you will get over it.

I have had a rubbish immune system for years and I reckon protein is good for it. Also awesome for vegans and veggo's who aren't getting enough proteins in their diet and it makes your brain bigger. A jar costs around $50 which is heaps, but I have been using my jar from Jack for about a year and I am not yet half way through!

I love drinking a meal. So cool, and oh so convenient if I am driving or riding a mechanical bull. My kid also loves a shakey, but she likes soy milk so I just top hers up with a bit and mix it in.

This is a totally imprecise form of cooking. I love it!
Ingredients. These are what I have in the freezer, fridge and cupboard. No endorsements. As you can see I try and get everything organic. Not all organics are the same, some of these brands are low grade, some are high.

I just invented...

Blue Breakfast Shakey

Ingredients - all approximate, go with the flow....

Small handful frozen blueberries (or any berries or fruit, berries are low carb and super nutritious)
1/2 cup soaked cashews (I soak 2 cups before bed and use them in different things)
1 tablespoon protein powder
4 tablespoons coconut cream or milk (or cream)
1 or 2 teaspoons of natural fake sugar (stevia or natvia or whatever)
1 teaspoon maple syrup (optional)
pinch of salt (optional)
1 cup almond milk 


Bung everything in a whizzer. Any kind of whizzer thingy will do. I use a cafe express that my friend Nat loaned me. If it is too thick add more almond milk. If you like it sweeter add more sweet stuff.

I heart comments. Especially if you have either tried my inventions or have invented things yourself!
