Today continued the retirement festivities, so I was able to graze all day, eating potato salad, chips, and dessert. With all of that sugar in mah belly, I decided a simple, refreshing dinner was needed.
So, after eating empty calories all day, I decided to add some nutrition to my life.
Looking at a few recipes, I quickly learned that frozen fruit was best, as you don't have to add ice to the smoothies.
Using that knowledge, and starting with this recipe, I made the.best.thing.ever.
Even better than these or these.
Chocolate Strawberry and Pineapple Smoothie
1/4 cup of vanilla almond milk
1 frozen banana
1 cup strawberries
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
1 tablespoon chocolate peanut butter
Blend all the ingredients together. (that's it!!!)
So creamy, fruity, and with a hint of chocolate, this smoothie was to die for. It was surprisingly filling and it tasted just like something I would have gotten from Robeks, but sooo much cheaper. And I get to pick the flavor combinations! I recommend freezing the fruit (the only fruit I didn't freeze were the strawberries) because the smoothie didn't get too thick. It was perfect, and I am so happy I have a little left over, so I can have this on my drive in to work tomorrow. : )
Now that I am officially a smoothie convert, I cannot wait to see what other concoctions I can make!
