Need a healthy but quick breakfast idea?
Try Mankofits protein-rich Green Smoothie! Only 6 ingredients and less than 2 min to whip up!
How I didn’t discover this idea sooner is beyond me. So simple, virtually fat-free, and only two ingredients. Oh and did I mention that it tastes absolutely delicious?
This is a great non-dairy milk alternative, especially compared to problematic soy varieties. Also, many of you may react negatively to nuts, leaving almond milk out of the question. If that’s the case, Banana Milk is well worth a try. (And hey—you may actually be unaware of a nut sensitivity. I discovered mine only two weeks ago!)

Bok Choy Cherry Smoothie
Good morning Monday!
This week I have for you a Bok Choy Cherry Smoothie.
This smoothie actually looks like hot chocolate and that’s due to the frozen sweet cherries.
My post about being a smoothie newbie explains how those frozen sweet cherries are good but they make smoothies brown and sweet.
If you are new to green smoothies you might want to add more ripe bananas or some sweetener of your choice.
Ready in minutes
- 1 cup of loosely packed Bok Choy Greens (I used just the top green part and not the white bottom part)
- 1 cup of Frozen Sweet Cherries
- 1/2 of a medium very ripe banana
- 1 cup of refrigerated coconut milk
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of ice
- Clean bok choy and chop green leafy tops.
- Place the green leafy tops and all remaining ingredients in blender and blend well. Serve immediately.
