Well, I am back on my smoothie kick. I don’t know why it has to be this on again, off again relationship but it’s on again nonetheless. More to come on what event prompted this, but for now, let’s focus on the smoothie. Getting back in the groove of making this concoction every morning takes a week or so, but luckily I have my stand-by recipe still memorized (for the most part) so all it took was a bit of prep work and I was good to go. Since a smoothie tastes best fresh, I make mine in the morning, which is no small feat considering I’m always in a rush (darn snooze button!).
In addition to buying some bulk-size bags of frozen strawberries, mango or whatever other fruit sounds good, I prep and freeze bananas, kale and other leftover produce so it’s easy to grab in the mornings, in individual bags.
Now that I’ve got my routine down, my goal is to find some additional smoothie recipes that have more vegetables than fruit so that I’m not overloading on the sugar (as natural as it is). Here are a few I’ve had my eye on. Do you have any suggestions?
- A Beautiful Mess – 5 Day Green Smoothie Challenge (5 different recipes)
- Strawberry Green Smoothie with celery, kale and coconut water
- Good morning green smoothie
- Green smoothie with avocado and coconut chips
