Pics or it didn’t happen

So a ton of people (seven eight) liked my mango post, and one person (The OM Project) made a post recently about bananas and peels and eating them. And I was like, what?

And then I was like, I only have one more frozen banana left in my freezer. I could do that.

Best Blended Smoothie Yet!

So this morning I did that.

And it was totally NOM.

2 kale leaves

2/3 cups carrots

1 cup vanilla almond milk

1 frozen banana

1 banana with peel.

So my kids were like, “Ew, Mom.” Well, the one kid that was paying attention when I said I was going to do it was like that. And I was a little bit, too. I scrubbed it down like the article said, but still. Peel? I ended up chopping off the top and bottom bits, too. That was just too much for me.

But the rest? Nice and sliced.

So the one thing I would say about this smoothie is this – I think carrots go better with orange juice. So no more carrots and almond milk, because the smoothie is good but a little off. Like the flavors don’t “sing” together, you know? But that’s OK, because I’m pretty sure it’s still good for me and it’s not going to kill me.

So thanks, OM Project! (Can I call you that? Should I keep the “The”?)

    1. I think next time I’m going with OJ in this particular smoothie. Ooh, or maybe peanut butter…especially (hopefully) the powdered kind might overpower ALL other flavors.

      Thanks for stopping by again! 😀

  1. I smoothie every morning but I’m afraid I stay in familiar territory and make pretty much the same thing. I’m gonna try and be more adventurous…..
