Smoothies For One

Sorry, All, new job and super tired in the evenings when I get home, so the blog has taken a temporary backseat. But no worries. Just making adjustments, then I’ll get back in the swing of things.

Here’s a refreshing recipe for a summer smoothie. This stuff is the bomb, and you can make it in a snap.

1 cup milk (regular, almond, soy, pick a card, any card…)

1 container yogurt (mine are six ounces, but again, take your pick, plain or low-carb or sugar-free)

1/2 to 1 cup frozen pineapple or mango or strawberries or peaches

2 tsp sweetener (optional, I use honey or real maple syrup or Stevia when I use it at all)

Put the milk and the yoghurt in the blender, add fruit and sweetener, and blend until it’s the way you like it. Add what little things you might like to rev up the flavor or the nutrition, like a dash of cinnamon, a drop of peppermint oil, or a handful of spinach (this comes out with an awesome green color, but you can’t really taste it).

Remember, FROZEN fruit is the key to the right consistency. Room temperature fruit will render your refreshing smoothie dull and unappealing, like stories of the Mojave Desert on a hot day in July.

Enjoy!
