A Smoothie in Two Acts

Last night I felt like whipping up a thick, fruity, dessert-ish smoothie, so I threw in equal parts frozen strawberries and frozen mixed berries (blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries), plus enough vanilla soymilk to make it blend. The resulting concoction was fairly good but not as sweet as I would have liked - I think it needed a nice ripe banana to sweeten it up but sadly, I was all out. Anyways, it was pretty.

I made more than I could eat for dessert, so I put the leftovers in the refrigerator and this morning, I put it back in the blender, added some kale, a few ice cubes, and a couple of dates, and re-blended it for breakfast.

Mmm... green sludge.

I almost didn't post about this smoothie since the taste was just okay - nothing to get too excited about - but then I thought I'd share since it illustrates the value of saving your leftovers for a new go-round the next day. :-)


  1. Have you ever tried adding some organic oats to your breakfast smoothie? It makes it a little heartier and I really like the taste.

  2. That sounds like a great idea; I'll have to give it a try. I've been meaning to try adding some nuts sometime too and keep forgetting.
