For those who know me, you know that I’m a sweetaholic! I know I don’t always make the healthiest choices and that’s not good at all. I just have to figure out solutions that work for me and my lifestyle…the lifestyle of wanting something fast and easy!!
So today, I was inspired by an Instagram by Elsie Larson (@elsiecake on Instagram) of a Beautiful Mess. She shared a photo of fresh veggies and goodies going into a blender, and asked for suggestions from her fans for making other smoothies. There were so many ideas on the comments of her blog…everything from blackberry and blueberry smoothies to kale and carrot smoothies! I thought I’d give it a go too and I infused some super healthy ingredients. I’m really proud of myself and I felt good about my dinner choice!
Here’s what I put in my smoothie (it made 2 servings)…
– 1 cup fresh kale
– 1 banana
– 1/2 mango
– 4 ice cubes
– 1/2 cup Almond milk
– 1 whole apple
I blended it up (with William’s help), my 1970’s olive-colored blender didn’t take to the apples very well! The result was delicious! YAY! I’m so excited about having a healthier dinner and breakfast option. I’m going to try my hand at other creations too. I can’t wait. I might even try to get up early enough to make them before work. Smoothies really do fill you up for a while!
Until next time Swellions!
