I made a smoothie tonight--without following a recipe. I love the website greenlitebites.com. I have tried and enjoyed several of the recipes. One thing that Roni makes often is smoothies, but I never seem to have the ingrediants that she uses on hand. Last year she posted an "elastic" approach to making smoothies. Basically it is a way to make a smoothie using what you have on hand. I have wanted to try this for awhile and finally did it tonight. This is what I did:
1 banana--starting to ripen--put in freezer for a few hours
4 whole frozen strawberries
1 packet of Splenda
Put ingrediants into fake Magic Bullet. Add skim milk about 2/3 full and blend.
That was it! It could have been a bit sweeter, but it was pretty good. I will definitely try my own smoothies again!
