Easter Brunch Smoothie

Well, it's really an Anytime Brunch Smoothie, but seeing it is Easter...

Happy Easter by the Way!

This is another one of those drinks where I found myself low on Fruits and Veggies and I while I was making a pot of Rolled Oats (and Mr. B was making an Omelet -see,  we can do this together ), this is what I came up with.

This time rather than Juicing, I used the Blender because of the soft banana and strawberries (they don't juice well).

This recipe makes about 60 ounces - in case you have people over  - Adjust the ingredients as needed. 

A friend of mine said she doesn't have a juicer and wanted to know if she could blend.   I know you can make stunning Smoothies with the Vita Mix or other high RPM blenders, but I haven't even tried to make one with a regular household blender so keep that in mind.  This smoothie I blended for 1 minute and it was excellent!

The Calories: (from *
2 Peeled Oranges 140 Calories
1 Banana (peeled) 90 Calories
1 Granny Smith Apple (medium not peeled) 80 calories
8 Whole Strawberries ( 1 cup =80 calories)
(water and ice)
Total Calories:  357 calories (remember I added a tray of ice cubes and 2 cups of water) so this is just a guide.  Also,  in searching for the calorie content from, there are different numbers depending on the size of the fruit....

Have a great day!    Hey tomorrow I start another 15 day Juice Reboot!  Like Spring Cleaning!  Woo hoo!

March Madness Juice

Great Breakfast Juice I concocted when I realized I was out of my normal ingredients!

I use the Cuisinart CJE1000 Juice Extractor -    This will make 16 ounces-

6 Carrots
1 Yellow Bell Pepper
2 Oranges Peeled
1/2 Cucumber (unpeeled)

Awesome Anytime!

For Those curious about the Calories,  I got these from entering just the individual ingredient used in the juice from  What I am not sure about is how much this changes when you are Juicing, because you are removing the pulp.  Anyone want to chime in on this?
6 Carrots  185 calories
1 Yellow Bell Pepper 50 calories
2 Oranges 140 calories
1/2 cucumber 8 calories

Total: 383 Calories
