liquid lunch – raspberry and banana parfait

raspberrybananaparfaitThere was nothing inspiring for lunch in my fridge today.  As I have a smoothie for breakfast most days,  I usually like to actually ‘chew’ my lunch and dinner, but today I thought I’d do a ‘liquid’ lunch instead of munch my way through lots of bits and pieces out of the fridge and pantry.   The result was a ‘creamy’ parfait/smoothie. It was thick enough to eat with a spoon. Now I’m full and hopefully won’t snack away the afternoon.

  • 1 banana (mine was fresh but could use frozen)
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1 date
  • 1 scoop protein powder (what the type if you’re being strict dairy and soy free)
  • fresh (or frozen) berries to top it off
  • 1 tbspn cacao buckinis (or you could use nuts or toasted coconut, or just omit)

Blend in your blender – top with fresh berries and ‘crunch’ of your liking.  Eat or drink as you see fit!
