it's smoothie time!

this evening i decided to create a delicious smoothie. here's what i did:
  • 7 big strawberries
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • 1/2 of a banana (i ate the other half)
  • some plain yogurt
  • a little cranberry-apple cocktail
  • a little green tea
  • 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
  • 1 heaping spoonfull of fibersure
  • 4 capsules of flaxseed oil
  • some ice
  • a solid squeeze of honey

looks delicious, huh? well a couple of seconds blending and ta-da!

ideally i would garnish with some fresh mint, but i did not have any and the mint that was previously growing in the backyard has been covered by our concrete patio. anyways, i added a fresh strawberry on the rim to make it look a little more festive. i am pretty sure this is the healthiest thing i have ever eaten/drank. it's high in protein, fiber, vitamins and antioxidants, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids and it is quite delicious.

louise will not have anything to do with my smoothies because berries have seeds in them and that is apparently an issue. chakima and chris had some. chris is now claiming that he is experiencing chest pains and (seriosuly and unfairly) blames my smoothie. there is a little left in the fridge for dave after he finishes his "authentic chinese food" from the exotic panda express. as long as chris does not suffer a heart attack, i would consider this a successful venture into the world of smoothies.
