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 MyFitnessPal.com) *
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 myfitnesspal.com, 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!
