Smoothies have never been a big part of my life since the Betes-because the fruits and sugars mix is pretty much asking for no toes. So my post previous asking about new years goals, (which by the way I absolutely loved reading!) there was one goal that I fell in love with,
and I'm blogging about it because I recommend it entirely after trying it.
It's just something I thought sounded good.
Thanks to Teandra for sharing her goals, it's been fantastic trying the smoothie! She recommend smoothies with vegetables mixed with only one fruit and yogurt. I tried made it, loved it, and didn't have spiked blood sugars after-which I think made me fall in love.
The recipe she gave me didn't have a name so I'm going to call it Green Delight (ok, so I have no experience at naming things)
~3/4 c. raw broccoli banana
~8 oz. Yogurt ( I used the plain LIGHT Activia yogurt)
~1 c. ice
**(She said to always mix in something green, such as kale, spinach, broccoli etc.) and I believe her, green veggies always have the most fiber!
I literally just mixed it all together in the blender and let the blender do the rest.
It surprisingly tasted FANTASTIC! I loved that I couldn't taste the veggies at all, mostly the banana.
Anyways, I would recommend it when you have no time, or all the time in the world-so basically whenever your craving an extremely healthy smoothie:).
Thanks so much Teandra! And by the way, her new years goal was to drink one of these a day to get in all her fruits and veggies for the day.
Brilliant I say.
Lets all try it!
