Give Me a Morning Smoothie and I'm Happy!

Monday, April 22, 2013

Just finishing up my breakfast, noticing the blue sky outside, and contemplating the day! Yeah, so much to look forward to; so much opportunity! And today it's mine, all mine!

What's your "feel good" way to "break the fast?" Mine? A smoothie!!! I really like those that are green... Kale, yum! But alas, today I chose not to go green.

This morning's recipe all whipped up in my irreplaceable VitaMix:
1/2 cup Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond/Coconut Blend
3 large strawberries frozen
1/2 cup banana slices frozen
1/2 cup fresh pineapple cubed
1 Tbs flaxseed
1 scoop Whey Protein Powder

Here's what I noticed this morning... THIS WAS TOO SWEET FOR MY CURRENT TASTES!!! Wow! Can you believe that? Amazing how you change and what you learn about your evolving preferences as you progress along your life's journey to improved well-being!

(Thank you TW for the SparkDust I've taken the liberty to cut and paste! Gosh, will someone please offer me a lesson on how to create these myself? Meanwhile, please consider it the highest compliment should you find that I have borrowed yours also!)

    I use frozen bananas, unsweetened soy or coconut milk, and cocoa for my afternoon or evening "ice cream". No need for extra sweetener.

It's amazing how sweet fruit is when you're not drowning it out in sugar.
