So, today, I created an alternative to my usual coffee fix every morning. I was tempted, I have to say to hear that drip, drip of the coffee maker, and especially, smelling the fragrance of the coffee, but no.... instead I created something, healthier, and tastier....
One of my favourite smoothies! And it is delicious. Creamy, fruity and satisfying. It seems a bit unusual on this -20c morning, with a good 17 cm of snow fallen outside, to drink something that's cold, but the aim here is to get a healthier way of living going.
Today's concoction was kind of fun to put together. I'm one to create a recipe, rather than follow one, and I have always found it more fun to experiment with food/recipes.
Today it is a Strawberry-Kiwi Smoothie.
To make: put in a blender, about 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt, 1/2 cup of orange juice, 4-5 chopped strawberries, and 1/2 a cut up kiwi. Normally, I'd add a few ice cubes, say on a hot day, but this is satisfying, healthy and more importantly ......Mmmmm good!
