Who would think I’d still be on the smoothie morning kick. Not this girl! I really thought I’d get tired of this, but I’m starting to crave it if I don’t have it. I love to have one in the morning and can last to or even past lunch! Now let’s hope I see it on the scale this week, yes I’m still doing my work out’s too.
I have two new smoothie’s I’ve tried! First one was a Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie that I added a handful of spinach too! So mine is not the bright pink as the original but I’m trying to get in my greens everywhere I can. I’m calling this Strawberry Oatmeal Spinach Smoothie (yup I’m creative like that).
Add in a handful (1-2 cups) Spinach
Old Fashioned Quaker Oatmeal (uncooked), scant 1/4 cup
Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt, 1/2 cup
1 % Milk, 1/4 cup (I used Light Soy)
Frozen Strawberries (unsweetened), 7 berries
Honey, 1/2 tbsp (I used Agrave)
Put the oatmeal in a blender and grind until it is all powder - this is important! It keeps your smoothie from having oat chunks in it.
Add other ingredients and blend until smooth.
This makes a smoothie that is thick, but still easy to suck through a straw. Adjust the milk to make it the thickness you like.
I’ve been having a horrible time falling to sleep for a while now, so when I saw this on Pinterest I had to try it. It was very yummy and I think it helped. It probably would help even more if I could find Tart Cherry Juice all I could find was Cherry Apple. This The Sleep Doctor's Sleep Slim Smoothie was on Doctor Oz’s website.
1 cup tart cherry juice
1/2 cup soy milk or 4-6 oz soy yogurt (if using soy yogurt, add an additional 1/2 cup fat-free milk)
5 ice cubes
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
Combine the cherry juice, banana, milk or yogurt with fat-free milk, ice and vanilla in a blender. Blend until smooth
Yeah we’ve made it to Thursday!! Hope you’re having a wonderful week and maybe one of these recipes find it’s way to your home!
