The simple smoothie
I've always liked smoothies but have never been a huge fan. The sugar load (especially in store bought or processed brands) is way too much for me, and I don't end up feeling satisfied. In the past I've tried to create elaborate, protein rich smoothies, but never really liked the way they tasted.
Today I had a new discovery: the simple smoothie. The thing I like the best about smoothies is that when you make them at home, you know exactly what is going into them. The ingredient list is very straight forward - no mysteries! This afternoon I made a smoothie that was the perfect little snack.
