This is your basic smoothie recipe, jazzed a little with the addition of a whole orange instead of merely juice. The almonds are delicious but you can omit them if desired. Chilling time is essential if you want a real ice cream-like thicky.
Discovering wonderful smoothies with oatmeal here on Zaar, I was moved to create my own. This fruity, low-fat breakfast will keep you going all morning. [If you're like me, you may be tempted to eat the whole batch :-)]
This dressing has flavor to knock your socks off! Lemon, balsamic vinegar, tahini, mustard, fresh parsley- I almost drool just thinking about it. Another great perk: beyond all that, you can't taste the uber-healthy flax oil :-) Serve on a colorful garden salad or as a dressing for pasta salad.
You know the smoothie drill- toss it all in the blender and cross your fingers. This time the ingredients happen to be bursting with antioxidants, vitamins and enzymes, and I was very pleased with my creation.
Have ingredients, will invent smoothie. When I've there's so much food around that I can't decide what to have for breakfast, innovation is always the best option. Feel free to play with measurements to suit your taste.
I invented this one morning when I was just dying to combine these ingredients... worked very well, I must say. It's best if you give it 1/2 hour or so in the freezer so it gets more like ice cream than a thick drink.
This has a mild, yet satisfying flavor; adapted from "Food For Life". I boil together some onions, lentils and rice, put salad on top and drizzle this whole unusual plateful with lots of Middle-Eastern dressing!
You will think you are eating dessert at breakfast! (Not to mention it's so easy and convenient.)For this recipe I give credit to Kripalu Yoga Center from their truly wonderful cookbook. I am in love with this muesli.
