Oh No, Another One? Something Healthy: Green Banana-Nutella Shake

So I guess this is a thing now. Blended beverages on Mugs and Makeovers. Who would have thought? Well, here we go. Another shake recipe. I have to say, this Green Banana-Nutella Shake is my go-to drink recipe. It tastes like the classic flavor combination of bananas and Nutella, but has the nutritional boost of spinach. Ew, gross. No it’s not gross. You can’t even taste the spinach (it’s like magic!). I am not one of those people who like green juices or juices made solely with vegetables because I mean, ew. It’s like bitter and blechy. So trust me on this one: this shake is sweet and tastes nothing like spinach. You have to try it!

Something Healthy: Matcha-Banana Shake

What do ya know? There’s actually something healthy being posted on Mugs and Makeovers. Good for me! Now I’m not one of those people to eat (or slurp, or drink, or consume, or whatever) things just because they are the latest-and-greatest super-food. I will eat things because they are yummy and make me feel happy. And if that yummy ingredient happens to up that metabolism, then yay! And that’s exactly how I feel about matcha (but seriously, I can’t get enough of this green tea powder; best flavor profile ever!). Fun fact: I was considering naming this blog Matcha, Mugs, and Makeovers. (Come to think of it, why didn’t I?) Anyway, here is a delicious, fresh, fruity, and earthy shake that will refresh you make you glow!

Chocolate Tropical French Toast in a Mug

Oh French toast, how I love thee. I will write a poem for just for you, my love:

Bananas are yellow,

chocolate is brown.

I don’t know where this is going,

I should stop writing now.

But anyway…. My point is microwave mug cakes don’t have to be just for dessert. They have every right to be at the breakfast table too! Think about it, they’re quick and super easy to make. So I have taken the liberty to create a Microwave Chocolate Tropical French Toast in a Mug (I know, I shouldn’t have). This French toast in a mug is a complete breakfast. You’ll be getting fiber from the whole wheat bread, protein from the egg, calcium from the milk, and vitamins from the fruit! (But don’t worry. If you’re freaked about it being healthy, I added chocolate. No worries, bro.)
