Happy Monday! Hope you’ve all gotten your morning off to a great start…I know I did! I just finished a nice interval run on the treadmill, covering just shy of 4 miles. It was a blisteringly hot glorious run. I’m sure you can imagine, with the amount of humidity that we have in the air right now, that by the time I was done, I pretty much looked like I had just gone for a swim – yowzas! So breakfast had 2 requirements:
- no baking/cooking involved
-must be COLD
Now, Monday’s usually require a little “somethin’ extra”, right? Something to get your week started off on the right foot? Well, I figured, why not start my morning off with a little breakfast out of a wine glass!
It was a breakfast fit for royalty (or even for a hot sweaty Courtney, either way, it works)! I used Julie’s breakfast parfait from last week for my inspiration, and it surely did not disappoint. I mixed up a batch of strawberry banana “soft serve” (which I’m now addicted to and need to go freeze more bananas…), and layered it up with a Chobani honey flavored yogurt, and some fresh blueberries.
To make the “soft serve”, all I did was put 1 frozen, sliced banana into the blender with a handful of frozen strawberries, and some cold water. I let it mingle for a while to get to my desired consistency, and voila - soft serve! I’m definitely going to be experimenting with some more flavors soon.
Looks like I need to work on my layering skills…I think next time I’ll use a white wine glass instead of red – they’re too fat to layer nicely!
My parfait was absolutely perfect – cool, creamy, and not to mention, kinda fancy!
So while I was running this morning, I got an idea for a future “Fashion Friday” post that I think you guys might enjoy! I’m really excited about it, but I still have to work out some of the details, so make sure to check back later today and I’ll give ya’ll the scoop!
Random Question for the Morning:
What’s your favorite fruit?
This one’s hard for me because I love ALL fruit – but if I could only pick one, I’d probably say bananas, just because they’re so versatile and can be used in so much (like SOFT SERVE!)
