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)
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.
