|Powerhouse Almond Milk smoothie|
Today I started out with a half of a cup of coffee with a splash of almond milk. I whizzed up a smoothie for today's breakfast, inspired by the ripening avocados I have - too many so I need to think of clever ways to eat them that are not on toast (sigh...toast!) I've been drinking fruit and yogurt smoothies a lot lately. It wasn't difficult to remove the yogurt and skim milk. As a matter of fact, I couldn't' taste the difference. Most days I toss in whatever frozen fruit I have on hand. I froze a few bags of fresh New Jersey peaches last summer, so I'm enjoying those still.
Thank goodness for my Magic Bullet Blender. Three years later and the thing is still going strong.
All the items were frozen: I packed in chopped peaches, chopped spinach, blueberries, half a ripe avocado and a smattering of golden flax seeds - for fiber mostly. To this I added in half a cup of unsweetened almond milk.
