This week has been full of party planning (don't worry, definitely showing that Herculean effort off soooon!) but I had to take a moment to share my hands down, most favorite smoothie yet.
one handful green grapes
1/4 carton raspberries (about 10)
one over ripe banana
1/3 cucumber, cut in small chunks
1 large handful clover sprouts
Pause: I'm sure this would have been delicious on it's own. On a whim, however, I opened up my freezer and added:
1 large handful of unsalted mixed nuts
The result????? Fruity, not too sweet, peanutty, lavendar-colored goodness. INCREDIBLE. My new favorite. The nutty note in the smoothy definitely keeps it from raising your blood sugars and adds in a helpful blast of protein. The berries deliver al lthe antioxidants I need to help me fight this yucky, not-needed head cold. I'm in smoothie heaven!
I call it Nutty Lavendar. :)
Enjoy, fellow foodivas!
