got sunny days on my mind...a raw vegan banana chocolate milkshake for breakfast

We're in double digits people! Double digits!! I know it likely won't last long but it's oh so lovely while it does. And just knowing summer is a hop, skip, jump away is enough to make everyone smile. What are your plans for the summer? I can't wait to go paddling again! The boyface owns a canoe/kayak/stand up paddleboard store called Mudpuppy Marine (you can visit him here), which means that I get free access to sweet boats, like my precious Scala. Didn't know Toronto was such an awesome location to paddle? Neither did I until I met him! Turns out there are tons of amazing harbours and even a gorgeous lagoon smack in the middle of the islands!

In celebration of warmer weather, here's a recipe for a delicious banana chocolate almond breakfast milkshake.

1 banana, frozen (make sure the banana is super ripe before freezing or your milkshake won't be sweet enough; PC brand organic bananas are pretty affordable, and you can normally get the really ripe ones for 50% off!)
1/4c almonds (if you don't have a hardcore blender, you may wish to soak these first)
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp cacao nibs
1c almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)
1 tsp agave or 1 date (optional, but if you're using bananas that aren't very ripe, I would definitely recommend it)

Blend, blend, blend!!! And enjoy. yum yum!
