Black bottoms have been a staple in my household for as long as I can remember. They’re a chocolate cake with a cream cheese and chocolate chip mixture on top, hence the name ‘black bottom’. I made some a little while ago and now want to share the recipe with you all! This is one of my all-time favorite things that my mother makes for us kids.
I was standing in my kitchen one day trying to figure what I could eat that was filling and healthy. Without even thinking, I found myself grabbing all of these random ingredients. In the end, I had created this banana oatmeal smoothie that was actually very, very delicious!
Here’s all you need to know:
I’m not sure if you all know this, but I’m a vegetarian! Have been for over five years. That being said, the first couple of years of my veg-hood, I wasn’t a very smart eater. My diet consisted of carbs and sugar and it was just a horrible mess. I was only in the 8th grade when I decided to go without meat so I definitely was too young to really think about my body and how I treated it.
I didn’t start to concern myself with the health of my body until 2012, but starting in 2011 I finally came around to the idea of veggie burgers and well, putting protein into my body. I had taken out a giant portion of my diet and for years I simply just did not find anything to replace it. Veggie burgers were my first step towards helping my body out again.
I found this amazing recipe on a blog a few weeks ago and had to try it out! I was lacking in a lot of ingredients for other kinds of burgers so I was pleased to see this one was comprised of some other things. In all, it was a pretty good burger. I have to say if you decide to make this, make the patty thinner than I did! I’m going to try this again and can guarantee that if it’s thinner, it’ll be even better!

There is such an odd story behind this.. I was hungry the last week and was searching for something to eat, naturally. I knew I felt like a smoothie but we only had non-smoothie fruits like apples and blueberries and a few bananas. Never would have put them together. Few hours later, get onto tumblr, THERE IS A RECIPE FOR THOSE EXACT INGREDIENTS IN A SMOOTHIE!
It was so weird. and the best part? The smoothie is GOOD! and good for you! All of the fruits involved are high in fiber so downing this will have you set! This is the Friendly Fiber Shake!
The amount of milk that you add in will decipher how thin/thick the smoothie is. Mine was quite thick so next time I’m going to add a bit more in!
