Vegan Kick-Start Shake

Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. —Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

So here's my excuse for that thing we call...breakfast — a vegan kick-start shake. It combines your morning injection of caffeine, chocolate for that deep seated craving, a splash of soy milk and a punch of banana. Who wouldn't like this to kick-start their day?

What is it that they say about breakfast?

Oh yea. All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast. —John Gunther

1/2 c non-dairy milk
1/2 c espresso or strongly brewed coffee
2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
1 T agave
2 ripe (or very ripe in my case) bananas
4-8 ice cubes

Combine all ingredients into a blender.

Blend. Whiiiiirrrrr....

Pour into your favorite cup. Yes, it is Easter Sunday and I am sipping my vegan kick-start shake from my adorable Starbucks Easter mug. 

This recipe can be adjusted to your espresso-y, chocolaty, banana-y liking. So go ahead, experiment and drink up ladies and gentlemen...your happiness depends on it!

This recipe makes approximately 28 oz. so share the goodness with a loved one...or you can just keep it all to yourself — it's up to you.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead... 1 Peter 1:3

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life. — S.D. Gordon

Happy Easter!
