All things blended…Meal in a glass
My first meal of the day is a smoothie (if not a fresh juice), after my hot lemon water. These days they consist of: spinach/red chard, banana, water, orange. It is super yumm. Sometimes I add goji berries, blueberries, msm, maca, and/or cacao beans...and the other day I had some leftover almond milk that I added to my green smoothie. Even that small amount made such a difference! It was so creamy and smooth! I've only added almond milk to sweet smoothies before, never green ones, so this was a nice little change.
Lately I've been on a blueberry kick too, since we still have heaps in the freezer from the summer. I've been adding them to smoothies, and making yummy puddings. Recently, I made this delicious soupy pudding with: blueberries, walnuts, banana, maple syrup, and lucuma powder. Divine! I could eat that every day! A friend gave me these cute dessert plates with the polka dots, and this was the first time I got to use one of them (even if I didn't eat directly off the plate, lol). The simplest thing can turn a regular dish into something really exciting, since afterall, we eat with our eyes first. I just love the bright colours here 🙂
The same blueberry pudding, sprinkled with lucuma powder
I got to play the other day, when I made these drinks for a few friends. First (the tall glass), I started with blueberries, almond milk, banana, raspberries, strawberries, handful walnuts, and a date. To that, I added on (front left)...with some pineapple, more banana, lucuma, and some lecithin to thicken it slightly. (sounds like a strange combo, I know). And now, onto the chocolate smoothie, I started with bluberries, banana, almond milk, cacao powder, maca, and some dates. Sprinkled with more cacao.
Just like eating off cool plates, I love to drink out of funky glasses. They totally snaz up a regular smoothie!
So remember, smoothies are cool!!!! Drink many of them and add heaps of greens for some sound nutrition. Cheers!
Mmmm, green goodness!!!
