Spiced Eggnog High Protein Smoothie

I'm hungry for breakfast.  J is off to school, the house is quiet and I don't want to cook.  Hmmm... time to make a smoothie.  I recently saw a recipe for a vegan eggnog that sounded interesting, so I was inspired to tinker with it to up the protein and to make it breakfast worthy.  Getting a hit of rum flavor for breakfast?  Sure, sign me up!  (OK, it's only rum extract, but it works for me)

Even my husband, who can be a harsh critic at times, says it's quite nice.  (Roy, you told me to share our little kitchen banter, so here it is, for all to read!)  He also thinks real rum would be better.  Cocktails, anyone? heehee

Real time blending in my kitchen ~ Enjoy!
