Banana Chocolate Chip Smoothie

Does this not look like the breakfast of champions?

20140322_082949You know it does. Brings a whole new interpretation to the term “liquid diet” too.

This recipe is an example of the transitive law of food actually working. For those unaware or unsure of the reference: the transitive law (which appears in logic and mathematics…not that those two are mutually exclusive) says “if A ~ B and B ~ C then A ~ C”. Here we’re going to let A,B and C be foods and we’re going to let ~ signify “works with”. The transitive law frequently fails in culinary settings. Example of failure: honey mustard works with chicken and chicken works with marinara but honey mustard does NOT work with marinara.

But now…if we let A = almond butter, B = bananas, and C = chocolate….suddenly the world makes sense again.

This recipe is quick, simple and tasty. Oh, and additional benefits: you don’t have to get dressed, go outside your home, or pay $5 at Smoothie King for it.
