Orange Banana Strawberry Smoothie – Day 2


Surviving day one with smoothies.  I am back for more.  First day lesson was if you don’t drink it right away add extra water.  I’m using flex seed powder, apparently the dried powder are my liquid.  A day wiser.  Using my smoothie book which is only a guide, I wanted to try an orange, banana and pineapple.  Nothing matched these together.  The Internet offered others but the refrigerator didn’t match up.  The result….The Orange, Banana, Strawberry Smoothie!! Notice it’s not all green.

The mad scientist list (actually I was a Chemistry Major who researched at NASA)

Two frozen bananas (they blend better this way)

An Orange (baseball sided, peeled and sectioned)

Twelve Strawberries

Two Tablespoons Flaxseed Powder

Two cups of Almond Milk (I used vanilla flavored)

One handful Fresh Spinach

I sliced the frozen banana and strawberries into big slices.  I added half of each fruit, then powder, then rest of fruit, then about 1 1/2 cups of almond milk.  This blended well, and after about two minutes (bits of color left) I added the rest of the almond milk.  It poured much better into plastic bottles.  My receipe produced about 34 ounces or 1 liter.

Looking forward to  pineapple smoothie with coconut water or coconut milk tomorrow.

The beginning of smoothies

      1. It’s like ground sirloin, with a little more flavor. Not as dry as ground sirloin either. I’ve only had fresh ground bison, so that probably helps the taste.


      2. Elk is good. When I went to Mono Lake in California, they had a restaurant that serviced wild boar, elk and quail in a platter. It was a great meal.


      3. It was. The restaurant overlooked the lake. Mono Lake is a very stark place not a pretty blue thing. It made for a great otherworldly experience.


      4. It’s east of Yosemite. When your cross over the Sierra mountains you come out right next to it. The lake is a salt lake. Where freshwater comes through Springs, it leaves behind these pillars of white carbonate surrounding a grey lake.. It’s a wide open area too
