In colder weather, instead of a morning smoothie, I like to have something warming and cozy, but still start my day with whole fresh fruits.
This comes together in a few minutes, packs a lot of energy, and can easily be adjusted depending on what's in season.

Serves 1. Double the quantities for a ~600 calorie breakfast meal.


2 bananas

1/3 cup coconut water

1 chopped peach/nectarine or handful mango chunks

handful fresh blueberries/raspberries

dash vanilla powder

dash cinnamon

dash maple syrup

sprinkle of chopped walnuts

small spoonful almond butter, optional


Place bananas in a saucepan and mash with a fork. Mix in coconut water and put over low-medium heat. Add the rest of your toppings, combine, and heat for a few minutes just until warm. Voila!
