new things & first day of classes

yesterday i said i’d been trying some new things lately. the most major of those new things happened because we got the blender off our registry for the wedding (wooo!). so, this week, i have been figuring out….green monsters!!

dark and scary

my first GM was the “standard” recipe: spinach, banana, almond milk, flax (flax is optional. i have it and use it in my oatmeal, so why not). i added some blueberries to it because i had them. well. i really hate bananas, so this smoothie tasted awful to me (and was dark and scary because of the blueberries). gross.

the second day i took katie’s advice and added in some orange juice, as well as a peach, to cover the banana. it made ALL the difference in the world. it was delicious.

later in the week i got braver (ahem: bought more fruit) and the smoothie i’ve been making, the smoothie i’m drinking right now to hopefully power me through my first day of senior year, is: flax, spinach, frozen banana, cantaloupe, canned pineapple chunks, orange juice, and almond milk.

flippin’ delicious.

when i run out of my current mix of fruit i might try watermelon, strawberries, frozen raspberries..who knows. yum!

p.s. this blender is awesome!
