Sooooo---for those who care, here is the Fruit Smoothie recipe I made today----I adapted one I found so you can do it my way or YOUR way....lol!
From now on, my breakfast will consist of a smoothie. I'll snack on something healthy around lunchtime or mid-day & then eat a nice big salad LOADED with vegi's and/or protein for dinner.
Have no fear, however....that this is going to become a blog filled with diet recipes. I still plan to indulge once in a while--I feel that is completely normal & most things are fine moderation. I will still be posting delicious things so don't you dare go anywhere!
Fruit & Yogurt Smoothie
1 C yogurt (I used Vanilla)
1/2 C frozen strawberries (I used 3/4 c. assorted frozen berries)
1/4 C frozen blueberries (see above---I just used 3/4 c total of assorted berries)
1 apple, cored and sliced (I did NOT use the apple)
1 banana (this is BEST FROZEN--mine was not today 'cause I spaced it yesterday--I've already put some in the freezer for tomorrow!)
1 Tbsp. raw sugar (NOT needed--I didn't use)
1 tsp. vanilla
Dump everything into a blender and puree.
Comes out THICK like a shake. SOOOO good---even my hubby Doug loves it!
