i will edit the photo next time i make this smoothie. i took a photo from sometime back and can't find it.
i had a smoothie similar to this a few months ago when i was feeling a
little dizzy after yoga. i didn't think that it was going to be one of those
things that i couldn't stop craving but it is. i've been working on this post for a while. i was trying to perfect the ratios so that i could share.
the original was pretty simple - peanut butter, a few bananas, ice and chocolate soy milk. i am trying to kill some of the sugar in the chocolate soy milk. but this is a quick recipe that will work for many of you.
a few hands full of ice you can add more if it's not cold enough.
westsoy plus plain organic soy milk-unsweetened (i look at my box of soy milk now and it says less sugar, i don't know if i had one that had no sugar now?) to cover all the ingredients, more if it will not blend
this recipe is enough for 4 people.
now this recipe is not low-fat or low in sugar but it is a nice boost in the afternoon and now that it is getting warmer, it is also cool and tasty!
it seems that others have been experiencing the same banana nut craving because i have seen at least 4 other posts on this as i have been working on mine. i haven't had a chance to try them yet, but i will share two that are very pretty and i think will be really popular for little ones.
i've mentioned that i'm reading animal vegetable miracle by barbara kingsolver and bananas are at the top of her list for foods that are not for us to be eating given where we live and all the energy it takes to get them here. i'm sorry to be encouraging them now. i promise to find a local seasonal food to share very soon.
on our walk yesterday morning my husband and i started with sun before the storm clouds moved in.. we really enjoyed all the color that is erupting. seems so green here, so much growth, it's almost overwhelming how it all happen at once.
i know these "weeds" in the grass make some people crazy...but i love all the texture and variation of color.
we had a beautiful day here yesterday. our sweet made a basket for us giving up some of her candy and some of her things she thought we'd enjoy. love her so much!
her favorite gift she found in her basket was her "young naturalist's notebook" from hearth song. this is out of print but is really a wonderful tool to encourage exploration and participation with nature.
we were invited out for two easter dinners. it's so great to drive with the windows open again!
we had some leftover asparagus, unbelievable but true. so this morning i made a poached egg and warmed up the asparagus in a little melted butter and fresh lemon juice. it was so delicious that we had it again for dinner with a glass of vegetable juice. we ate out on the new porch. lovely evening before a week of rain expected.
we had a beautiful day here today, tried to spend most of it outside. our girl received her easter package from her grandparents today. she sat right down to sort through it and jar it all up by candy type.
