Smoothie Wednesday

by Marissa on October 28, 2009


I’ve been traveling overseas for the past week and feeling pretty yucky as a result. Not only has the time difference thrown me off but my regular eating habits have become lax. I woke up this morning ready to get back into my routine and craving my usual morning smoothie. Panic-stricken that I had no ingredients in the house, I popped into my kitchen to see what I could rustle up. It’s amazing the concoctions I manage to create when I’m forced to use my creativity. So without further ado, here it is:

Choc-full of MWAH Smoothie

1 can light coconut milk
2 frozen bananas
1 Tbsp all natural peanut butter (or another nut butter)
a generous sprinkle of cacao nibs
1 scoop Amazing Grass Chocolate Green SuperFood (available by clicking on the picture under ‘My Favorite Products’ on this site)
a drizzle of honey

Blend and enjoy.

Delicious!

When I got to work, I was served up my morning dose of Hungry Girl to find a recipe for a Pumpkin smoothie. I absolutely love the vitamin-packed punch of pumpkin and no doubt it’s delicious in a smoothie but this version suggested loads of processed ingredients like light ice cream, light vanilla soy milk, sugar free vanilla pudding and sugar free vanilla-flavored syrup or Coffee-mate powder. I mention this not to dis Hungry Girl, I love her newsletters and calorie-saving recipes but I love more when real, whole foods are what we nourish ourselves with and surprise — we don’t have to skimp on taste!

Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe made with whole foods?
