so, this smoothie may look to you like a cup of...of...something sort of weird and something that someone might of regurgitated. yes, I said regurgitated. my mama is a nurse. I show no shame.
Strawberry & Apple Smoothie
Small punnet of strawberries
1 large dessert apple
1 tangerine1 single portion strawberry yoghurt/frozen yoghurt
Splash of apple juice
shove it all in blender, zoom zoom it all together and enjoy the blessedness of this smoothie. even though you've got it in your mind what this smoothie really looks like (refer to the sentence above the ingredients, just to jog your memory), keep enjoying it. it serves two. unless you're really greedy, and you wanted to have two glasses and not share it with anyone. I understand. smoothies are like that. they evoke the wickedness in all of us.
now, because I'm a nutrition nut (in a I-love-coffee-and-brownies-too-kind-of-a-way) and I love all things healthy, here is the breakdown of this smoothie. aka: what it's doing to your body.
it will do crazy things.
strawberries. they have an awesome load of vitamin C and fiber. plus they taste like heaven. but they are bursting full of fruit sugars, which in this case are converted into calories, so not too many of these lovely bad boys, kids.
apples. one a day keeps the doctor away? it's true. the fibers in these honey-bunches are really good for your body.
tangerine. vitamin C and A. lots of. the tangerine's vitamin A is beta-carotene, which is great for your skin!
yoghurt. calcium and good bacteria. it has healthy fats and makes a lovely face-mask...disclaimer: I wouldn't really recommend slapping this smoothie all over your face. smoothies are for drinking. just clarifying.
apple juice (from concentrate): don't have too much of this good stuff...it's nice, but the heap of fruit sugars will be turned straight into calories. if you're bothered about that. which I'm not.
do you have a favourite smoothie recommendation? I'd love to try it out!
love you all.
be good, drink a smoothie and kiss a chimpanzee.
p.s. happy easter sunday! I am so happy today. Jesus is Lord, we are no longer bound by sin because of His death & resurrection and God is good!
