OMG, I’ve turned into a smoothie-a-holic!  The weather has been hot and I’ve been making smoothies.  Unbelievably easy, and really delicious, especially if you’re looking for something filling and sweet.  Don’t bother with freezing bananas to keep in the freezer for smoothies.  I’d rather have them fresh.  (Buy a few that are just about ripe, and a few that are still green, and you’re set for the week.)  Keep frozen fruit, berries, strawberries, whatever you like, in the freezer, for the frozen element.  MUCH easier, and gives you more options.  I also LOVE a dab of almond butter in the smoothie, but it does add a lot of calories, so I’ve been using cocoa powder and a bit of sweetener, along with almond milk, the frozen berries, and a nice fresh banana….  all of which are in the smoothie sitting right in front of me.  Yes, you can throw in some kale.  And, yes, adding chia seeds would be great, and healthy.  Think of all the options!  Smoothies are not as fancy-shmancy as you might have thought.  Experiment…  and enjoy!  YUMMY!

    I love smoothies too! I never seem to make the same one & it’s great fun to experiment!! Never put almond butter in though, will have to give that a go! :)

      Hi- These basics seem to stay the same when I make a smoothie- banana, frozen berries of some kind, and almond milk, but then I usually add either cocoa powder or almond butter and both are delicious! Let me know if you try the almond butter! Mindy
