Breakfast Smoothie with Corn Shoots

What is your favourite quick breakfast?

I always say I'm going to bake a whole bunch of muffins to grab and go, but either the muffins don't get baked, or they don't make it to breakfast. ;) I like granola and muesli but I can't eat commercial brands due to my allergies...and for some reason, I never get around to whipping up a nut-free batch. This is where fruit smoothies come in...and in particular, smoothies with added shoots and leaves.

My current favourites are smoothies containing corn shoots. I've been growing batches of corn shoots on the windowsill, in full sunlight, as well as in the darkness of the closet (not sure if my hubby enjoys having corn growing on the floor below his freshly washed and hung shirts, but hey! he ought to be used to my weird experiments by now). The blanched corn shoots are definitely sweeter in taste, but I must admit I almost prefer the "grassier" notes of the shoots grown in sunlight. Either way, they are absolutely stellar in smoothies!
