This is what I put into my smoothie yesterday:Okay, it wasn’t actually those particular pieces of food that went into the blender – I didn’t even think to take a picture until after I’d already blended and poured into my smoothie cup. When I’m hungry I am usually thinking about eating the food rather than taking pictures of it…but I’m getting better and usually remember to snap a picture before I scarf down all the food. Except for today at lunch. I forgot to take a picture of my omelette until there were literally only two bites left. I decided to forgo the picture because it seemed a little pointless…sort of like the rambling that I just realized I’m doing now.
Back to the smoothie. I love smoothies and I make them a lot. Like, I drink one six days a week, and on day seven I’m a little sad that I’m not drinking a smoothie and I wish that I had made one before leaving the house, a lot. This mixed berry one is my favourite and I’d say it’s the one I make the most often.
Filling the blender right to the top before blending usually gets me two days worth of smoothie. I could stretch it to three servings, but I’d feel like I was cheating myself out of fruity goodness, and who wants to do that? If I really need to have three days worth of smoothie prepared in advance, I will blend to reduce volume, and then add in more fruit and blend again. I don’t do this three-day prep very often, though, because by day three the mixture has a darker, greyish tinge, and it’s starting to be less than optimally fresh – sort of bitter, if you will. Two days’ worth is perfect, though – I just pop the top back on the blender, and stick the jug into the fridge overnight. I give it a super quick blend before pouring on the second morning, just to mix it up and keep it smooth and even. Quick, healthy and delicious!
