Peanut Butter Banana Perk and Vegan MoFo

YAY! The day we’ve all been waiting for right?? Vegan Mofo 2013 is here!

For those of you that don’t know, Vegan Mofo stands for the Vegan month of Food. The idea is to write about as much Vegan Food related content as possible for the month of September (at least 20x in the month), whether it be recipes, reviews, techniques or favorite brands and products. People from all over the world are participating so it’s is a pretty big deal.

This is my first time joining in on the fun and I’m not going to do a theme but I am going to share awesome recipes with you. I’m really going to challenge myself. While I’ve been cooking and baking for years, I’ve never really been one to write down what I’m doing, I tend to cook by sight and taste rather than measurement. But rest assured, each recipe I share with you will be tried and tested for accuracy and deliciousness.

I will let you know now that this will be probably be the most I’m going to write, I tend not to get too wordy with my posts but instead, I like to get right to the point.

That being said let’s get this month started off with something light and refreshing, not too filling but just right to get your taste buds and tummy warmed up for all that is yet to come. I’m using Califia Farms Almond Milks, my personal favorite. If you haven’t tried this brand yet, please, do yourself a favor and run out and get some! Stalk your grocer if you have to, demand they give you the holy grail of Almond Milk!

My Peanut Butter Banana Perk Smoothie is a great way to start the day. It has protein from the peanut butter, potassium and B6 from the banana, a little perk from the Cafe Latte and all the dreamy creaminess you’d expect from Califia Farms Almond Milk.
