This is the healthiest I´m eating these days. Orshould I say the only somewhat healthy thing I had in the last week. It´s hardto eat right in the winter. I crave stews, hearty soups, chocolate, things thatfill up my belly and give me a big hug when I come home, usually cold andhungry.
The smoothie is a great way to use ripe fruit. And toeat fruit. At least better than a daiquiri or such drinks. You also eat fruitthat way, ha.
We are big consumers of fruit smoothies, especiallybananas and milk. Are they still smoothies if they don´t have yogurt? I don´tknow, but I can´t think of another way to name them. We also drink lots ofwater based blender drinks, mainly in the summer of course. Peaches orstrawberries and orange juice is a very popular one. Never forget some ice.It´s essential. Room temperature smoothies are just not the same. They shouldhave ice. Even in the winter. Like this one. Which also makes you feel good with all those blueberriesso full of anti-oxidants. Can you feel the wrinkles refusing to appear? Well,neither do I.
