It’s not often that I don’t wake up ready to dive right into breakfast, but when I do, a shake is the perfect answer.

You don’t have to think; you don’t have to cook. You just have to blend.

A shake’s not a bad way to sneak in some extra hydration either.

Some of my other favorite shakes:

Mocha Cherry Latte

Peanut Butter Hazelnut Frappuccino

Are you hungry when you wake up? Do you eat breakfast right away or wait?


P.S. I picked a bad week to start triathlon training… it’s been freezing {literally} cold and rainy. Where’d spring go?!

P.P.S. Can I PLEASE be in a flash mob?

Although preferably Black Eyed Peas-Oprah style, not Howie Mendel style.

{Although if Tabitha, Napolean, and Lauren will be there, I could probably put up with the Mobbed cheesiness.}
