Like many of my posts, this one was sitting in 'drafts' for ages. But this morning I made a smoothie using Dara's incredible nutribullet (I want one, I want one, I want one) and I got excited about smoothies again. I got excited about smoothies... there's something depressing about that sentence. This smoothie that I drank in, oh, maybe April was delicious so I thought I'd share it.
The thing about me and smoothies is that I love drinking them and coming up with new ones and finding interesting, fun combinations, but right before drinking them, I find them more boring than food and I think "Ah, but why make breakfast that I can drink in three gulps when I could make scrambled eggs or fancy granola?" But when I make a good one? Oh, I just want to make a thousand more good ones!
1/3 cup frozen blueberries
slice of mango
1/4 cup vanilla almond milk
1 tsp wheatgrass powder
1 tsp spirulina
1 tsp maca powder
The thing with smoothies is that everything is optional. You can have two of the ingredients (blueberry and almond milk, let's say) and add a bit of ice and it'll be grand. I even added some pretty stuff on the first one (shredded coconut, goji berries, mulberries) but that was just for show. If I want one as breakfast, I also like to add vanilla protein powder. I will definitely be looking into buying a nutribullet. Do any of you own one? I also checked out some other much less expensive options but I wonder if they will last as long or be as good as the nutribullet. Any recommendations welcome!
