Blueberries for breakfast, blueberries for lunch!

After quite a while of cereal and green monster smoothies for breakfast, I decided to revisit an old favourite. Oatmeal! Banana Bread Blueberry Oatmeal that is.

But by lunch time, I was missing my green monster (although, in reality, it looked blackish).. so I made this lovely creation.

1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp. vega protein powder (vanilla)
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
2.4 cup baby spinach
1/4 cup water

Blend it up until its smooth.

SERVES: one.
