Peas and Smoothies, But Not TogetherJuly 14, 2008
The black-eyed peas are ready. I have spent the last several days picking and shelling and freezing. I have 10 pints put up so far. For my first year ever to put up my own vegetables, I am happy with my modest start.
I have lots of fruit for smoothies in the freezer as well. Last night’s smoothie was a fruity delight. I used about a cup of cantaloupe, a half cup of blueberries, a half cup of blackberries, a half cup of yogurt, and a half cup of vanilla soy milk. It was wonderful. I bought six bananas at the grocery store, and now, all those are in the freezer as well. I think tonight’s smoothie will be banana, cantaloupe, blueberry, yogurt, and milk. The black berries were good, but oh my, the seeds.
Often, a smoothie is considered a breakfast or lunch option but I prefer coffee in the morning, along with a granola bar. I like a nice hearty lunch and a smaller supper. A smoothie fits the bill perfectly. Also, if I have a smoothie for supper, I’m not heating my up my kitchen.
What’s your favorite smoothie recipe?
