This morning I was still on a yoga-high from last night’s class and the wonderful view only added to my excitement.
It’s a glorious, icy morning in Leuven.
When we were little and the sky was in a pink haze our mum would always tell us that ‘Sinterklaas’ was baking cookies for the good kids (for those of you who don’t know Sinterklaas, it’s a Belgium tradition for the kids to get presents on the 6th of December from Sinterklaasn but only if they have been good ).
Anyway, thinking about Sinterklaas and cookies inspired a great smoothie idea.
‘Petit Beurre Green Monster’
Cookies and veggies for breakfast, bet you never saw this combo coming?!
Add one or two petit beurre cookies to 200 ml of soy milk, let it sit for a while so the milk can take in some of the flavours. If you use one cookie you’ll get a very subtle petit beurre flavour,so add some more if you want it to be more noticeable.
In a blender add the cookie-milk, one very ripe banana, a few handfuls of spinach or lamb’s lettuce and a couple of dashes of cinnamon. Blend it all together.
I topped mine with some rice flakes and more cinnamon, granola would be great, petit beurre crumbles would be sublime!
So there you have it, cookies for breakfast!
