Get Me Going Smoothie
This morning I had a glass of warm water with a few squeezes of lemon juice. Then I snuck in a few grapes. Truly I would like to eat a bit more but these last few days have been killer on the "Things To Do List". Anyways not really complaining just moving right along.
I was able do a smoothie. I have made this one once before and it seems to go down pretty well. It is not overly sweet. I am not a sweet smoothie person. I like mine less sweet than the general population. I tried to pack as much into it as I could do. I have a feeling that I will be experimenting with it until I get it just right. For now this is what was in it.
Amazing Grass Chocolate Powder ( 2 scoops)
Goji berries (for some body or thickness and nutritional value)
KLamath Lake Blue Green Algae (opened 2 caps)
1 Frozen banana
Camu Camu Berry Powder (small tsp for Vitamin C)
Powdered Vanilla (1-2 small tsp)
I put it all in my Vitamix and blended away. I must say this is turning out to be a keeper for me. There is still some tweaking, however it is a start. Last time I did add some Reishi mushroom powder to it as well.
I really love to try new things in my smoothies and food. I also know that it is great to make your smoothies more balanced with some protein and fiber. I could have added more protein but I am just in the midst of ordering some new ones that I want to try.
I think the key is to have fun with your smoothies. What are some of your favorites? If you don't have all the ingredients listed above. Fear not!! You can really put almost anything into your smoothies. If you are making your first smoothie you can just add in some fruits and almond milk until you get used to it and then explore!!
