I’m so glad I have most of my appetite AND a small amount of energy to make some easy, delicious food.
Below is Food For Life, millet bread. Have you ever picked up a loaf of gluten free bread? It’s small, weighs a ton and will set you back $4-6. However, it’s comforting and deliciously different from wheat based bread. The millet bread is dense and almost thick + cakey in a way. I like the texture and the flavor is mild.
I topped it with unsalted/unsweetened PB, coconut butter, + raisins.
I made a HUGE green monster, that turned purple from 1c of blueberries. It didn’t even all fit in this glass!
- almond milk
- acai juice [no sugar added]
- chia seeds
- avocado [makes smoothies suuuuper creamy]
- vanilla chai protein powder [amazing grass]
Dakota knows I’m sick. She pouts even more, if you can imagine that. It is on rare occasions like this that I let her up on the couch and then immediately regret my decision.
She is SUCH a couch hog! I was smooshed.
She loves to be buried in blankets and does not try to find her way out…
My afternoon smoothie was slammin’!!!! I made a variation from the orange banana smoothie I made a few weeks ago, which was a variation from Angela’s creamsicle smoothie. This was much more creamsicle like!
Orange Coconut Creamsicle
- 3 clementines
- 1/4 avocado
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1T chia seeds
- ~1c unsweetened almond milk
- ~1T coconut butter [coconut oil will work too]
- 1t vanilla
- 1t maca powder [optional]
- Pour almond milk into a blender.
- Add all ingredients. Peel as much pulp off the clementines as possible.
- Blend on low, working up to high until smooth.
- Let sit ~3min to thicken, if desired. [the ground chia seeds will thicken it]
*Make sure your banana is frozen or this will be too liquidy. You can also freeze the clementines [after peeling them] and the avocado, if you wish.
*If you use a whole banana it will overpower the flavor.
*If you use more avocado it will mask the flavor. I find that coconut milk [from the carton] also masks flavor in smoothies.
This was suuuuper creamy, with a mellow vanilla flavor, slight hint of coconut + banana, and orangey deliciousness. If you want a more robust orange flavor, add zest from the peel.
Back to lounging around and trying to kick this fever out the door!
