As part of my New Year’s resolutions I have to eat more fruits and vegetables…
I wish I had the time to make myself a huge fruit salad every morning, but I don’t. So my alternative is to make myself a fruit smoothie every morning. I try to mix up the fruits to use what’s in season, but also to suit my cravings. I also try to add ingredients that will increase my protein and fiber content in the smoothie, such as soy protein powder or oatmeal.
This is the smoothie I made this morning… strawberry banana with passion fruit juice. It’s yummy…
STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE
1 banana 3 medium strawberries 1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt 3/4 cup fruit juice – orange, passion fruit, pineapple would all work 2 tablespoons of oatmeal squirt of honey, optional a few ice cubes
Mix all ingredients well in a blender.
Add a little water if it’s too thick.
