For those of you who don't know I lost 28 pounds earlier this year and thank goodness I have kept it off. I cut out all foods made with wheat flour and am trying to mostly eat organic and no processed foods. For three months I drank a smoothie every morning and then juiced for lunch. Juicing means I bought a juicer and placed fresh raw vegetables and some fruits in it and I drank the juice that came out. Then I ate a light dinner each night and drank lots of water with lemon. I still have my morning coffee with cream and organic sugar. That is the one thing I would not give up. Now I may juice a couple times a week for lunch. I lost the weight in less than three months. Many have asked that I share some of my recipes. I don't really have a lot of recipes to share, but this is my go to breakfast every morning.
I made this one using frozen blueberries and every other day I use frozen strawberries. You can use whatever fruit you want to.
These are all the ingredients for this protein packed drink. I buy bananas every time I go to the store and when they get really ripe I peel them and break them in half and freeze them to use in my smoothies.
I just have a cheap blender for now, but would love to get a Nutribullet or the big boy Vitamix some day.
Add 1/2 cup almond milk.
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup frozen fruit and the frozen banana half.
Tbsp or so of almond butter
Honey to taste
I like to add flax meal, ground oatmeal or chia seeds. I use one of the three and change it up each day.
Throw it all in your blender and blend for a minute or more so it gets all thick and creamy.
To make it even better for you add a handful of spinach and blend well. You will not taste the spinach.
Pour and enjoy!
And now I'm getting all fancy on y'all and adding a recipe card. I had forgotten to add Greek yogurt on the card so that got added last after the fact.
Stay warm and have a super weekend!
