.... has completely changed our LIVES!
I have been making smoothies like a machine. Well, actually, that machine has been making the smoothies like a machine, but I've been combining cold berries and soy milk and pomegranate juice and peanut butter and yogurt and chocolate soy milk and have been sucking in the nutrients. Oh, and I haven't so much been putting all of those together at the same time, but some combinations of different ingredients.
These are a few of my favorite recipes so far:
Berry Berry Delicious Smoothie:
1/2 c. soy milk
1/2 c. pomegranate juice
1/2 c.ish of frozen blueberries.
1 handfull-ish of frozen strawberries.
1 whole banana.
De-thaw in the fridge overnight. Smooth away in the morning. (Oh and put the liquid in the bottom first. Then the chunkier stuff in second).
CBPB Smoothie (that would be the Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Smoothie)
1 c. of Chocolate Soy Milk
1 whole banana
1/4 c.ish of creamy PB
A few spoon-fulls of yogurt (or vanilla yogurt) or whatever you want.
Smooth. And put it back in the fridge so it gets really cold. And plan on eating a light lunch, because this little smoothie is some kind of filling.
These aren't really my own recipes. But they aren't really anyone elses either. They are sort of me trying different things and seeing what I like after reading others smoothie recipes. And of course, compromising based on what we have. Unless of course its Saturday night and we need to get bananas on the way to the Red Box.
