Smoothie a Day #5 ~ Orange

Standard

ORANGE SMOOTHIE

~Juice of two oranges

~1/2 paw paw

~2 bananas

~1/2 cup almond milk

~handful of ice

Blend & drink

I was so excited when David came home with a paw paw yesterday. I knew that I was going to use oranges in my smoothie today, but paw paw was a great addition to make today’s smoothie recipe. I had no plan for what was going into this smoothie, and it blended together to make a delicious drink. This made enough for both Zaedyn and I. He is loving smoothies a day so much that I have to make sure I make enough, or I won’t get any!

Still with another half, I have not yet decided whether I will be eating the rest of the paw paw or adding it to tomorrow’s smoothie. Paw paw reminds me of Rarotonga as their was endless amounts of paw paw, coconut, and fresh fruit that I looked forward to every morning. Can’t wait to go back again one day!

Tomorrow’s smoothie ingredient is nut milk. I better go and soak some nuts. Check out a previous post on Fresh Raw Almond Milk, and you can follow the recipe with another type of nut to make a dairy-free milk. Hope you will join in on our Smoothie a Day ~ November. Feel free to share a photo of your smoothie on Facebook.

Smoothie a Day ~ November

Standard

November

Smoothies are full of goodness! They are packed with lots of nutrients. Fruit, Veggies, and superfoods: there are endless ways to make a different smoothie every day. This actually made it extremely hard in choosing only 30 ideas, but I tried to choose a variety as well as a few that I know will be a bit more challenging. I also tried not to use too many ingredients that not everyone stocks in their pantry, but with only one ingredient listed you can feel free to get creative. I am going to be creating smoothies that I have never made before, and I look forward to seeing everyone else’s creativity.

If you are following us on Pinterest, there is a new Smoothies board which I will be adding lots of pins to as I come across them. I will post this photo so that you can re-pin. Please like and share this photo on Facebook as well so that as many people as possible can be involved in creating and drinking smoothies this month. Each day we welcome any way you wish to contribute whether it is a photo, recipe, or your thoughts. If you post a photo on our wall, you can re-share on your own. Thanks for all of your support, and I look forward to all of the smoothie bliss in November.
