I had intended to take a picture of it but it was so darn good that I drank it all up before I was even able to open my iPhone's camera. Tomorrow I will make more of an effort to photograph my green smoothie, which should be easy to do because today the effort I made to photograph my smoothie was basically zero.
As I mentioned, I've been referring A LOT to Joy McCarthy's "Joyous Health" blog and I just LOVE it. I made a smoothie from her blog yesterday and today I made another one! Her "Dreamy Banana Cream Smoothie." Holy wow was it good. I halved the two-serving recipe since it was just me and swapped out the mesquite powder (because I had none) for a heaping 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and a tsp. of cacao nibs. I read that the flavor of mesquite, which apparently goes great in barbecue sauces, has undertones of cinnamon, coffee and chocolate, hence my substitutions. I also added spinach (which is darn near indiscernable in smoothies) to make it "green."
While I am VERY tempted to have this EXACT same smoothie tomorrow, I have some pineapple and kiwi in my fridge that are just BEGGING to be eaten up so I think I'm going to make this Kiwi-Pineapple-Mint smoothie instead, from Kathy Patalsky's Healthy Happy Life blog.
Lastly, because I will never do a post without pictures, here is my lunch and dessert from tonight! Dinner was just leftovers ;)
Soup or salad? How 'bout a "supersalad"!!!! I'm punny. Okay, seriously though. If ever there was a super salad, this is it. I literally think everything in my fridge and pantry went into this. It turned out AWESOME though. Perfect flavor, texture and nutritional balance with (get ready for it): romaine lettuce, spinach, cucumber, celery, artichoke hearts, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, edamame, hemp hearts, freshly cracked black pepper, sea salt, a drizzling of oil and a squirt of lemon juice (phew!).
Made this beauty in my new Vitamix. It's strawberry sorbet made with frozen organic strawberries, filtered water, a little bit of organic cane sugar and unsweetened cacao nibs for added crunch ;)
