I'm back...I'm so sorry for staying away... I've been a)busy, b)celebrating my birthday and c)having computer troubles. I get so frustrated whenever my computer becomes slow. It doesn't seem to matter that I've erased almost everything and that all of my files are now loaded via a disc... it doesn't matter. Oh well.
Now on to better news.
I've decided to eat a smoothie-a-day to get in some of the fruit that I normally don't eat. This food came up in a conversation we were having at school, when my instructor mentioned that she makes her smoothies with tofu (I'm not going there yet).
RECIPE: (yields ~2 cups)
1/2 c nonfat (or lowfat) yogurt, plain
1/2 c strawberries, fresh
1/2 c blackberries, frozen
1/2 c orange juice
Alternatives... use soft tofu, instead of yogurt. Use tea instead of orange juice, for a bigger does of antioxidants.
Combine all ingredients in a blender, blend... and enjoy.
The blackberries are really "tart" so you may need to either add more strawberries, or some sugar. Add 1 tbsp at a time..
