I just got a new blender for Christmas, so this is just a collection of smoothies and stuff that have caught my eye and I just thought I'd share. I don't really care for bananas so most of these don't contain banana. These are only ones I want to try, not ones I've tried- all of those are in my reviews.
This is a thick smoothie made with dried apricots and nectar, cashews, raisins. You'll be getting a rich source of calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium and carotenes.
Now that's the way to start a day! Or a healthy lunch. Be sure to use fresh plump dried apricot and raisins. If not be sure to rehydrate.
A refreshing South of the Border thirst quencher posted in response to a recipe request. From the Houston Chronicle. Chilling time not included in the prep time. Yield depends on quantity of melon used.
I went running for a bit too long this morning, and needed a quick pick-me-up before getting ready for work, and this is what I came up with. It was pretty good. You can skip the oatmeal if you don't like the flavor, I just needed an extra stomach-filler.
A Quick and Easy twist on Horchata (Mexican Rice Milk) and Smoothies. It makes a nice creamy drink that is perfect for breakfast or as a sweet treat poured over ice on warm day. (I shortcut this recipe by using my recipe for vanilla yogurt. Also equally yummy adjusted fat free/sugar free)
