What is our obsession with this date on the calendar? Just because a new year begins does not mean that I have to make my life all new and sparkly. I'll sparkle when I want to sparkle. Clearly I've broken one of my resolutions - three actually. I haven't started reading anything; I'm not eating as many raw fruits and veggies as I resolved to; if I'm lucky I might drink pure milk 3 times a week. Anyway, I was determined to do better today so I made a smoothie. Here's the recipe for what I have (somewhat stupidly) nicknamed The Banamangberry Smoothie.
The Banamangberry Smoothie (makes approximately 16 oz.)
- 1 large banana
- 1 medium sized mango
- 5-6 strawberries
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt
- 2 tbsp wheat bran
- 2 tsp lemon juice
Peel and cut up the banana. Wash the strawberries and remove the leaves. Cut up the mango by whatever method you would normally use. Then put all the fruits and the other ingredients into an osterizer/blender/magic bullet/vita-mix and blitz them until smooth. Pour into a glass and happily drink your 3 servings of fruit. Just because I can't stick to a goal doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy a yummy fruity drink.
