I am not usually a fruity girl first thing in the morning.
Wait … that came out wrong.
What I am trying to say is, I do not usually eat fruit in the morning. If I do, I typically get all shaky and freaky and type frantically while I am working at my computer. What’s more, this mad plunking of the keys does not look as though I am very important and trying to get something done. Instead, it is more like I am having a mild convulsion all while having an impulse to put my fingers to a computer keyboard.
It’s not good.
But this morning my fiance made me a smoothie. I was, for obvious reasons, reluctant to drink it. But he told me it had soy milk in it, so I crossed my fingers and prayed the protein from the soybeans would somehow balance out the tremor-inducing peaches, berries and fruit juice.
It did. This smoothie was so good. So, I thought, “Why not share it with all of my wonderful readers?”
Here it is, Smoothie À la My Fiance:
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla soymilk (I use WestSoy brand.)
1/2 cup of R.W. Knudsen’s “Simply Nutritious Mega Green” (You can use any no-sugar added fruit juice, but this has a mix of fruits that I really like — your choice! I found it at Whole Foods, but a lot of major grocery chains carry this brand.)
3/4 cup of frozen strawberries
3/4 cup of frozen peaches
1/2 cup of frozen red raspberries
And an orange slice for prettiness!
Then, you can look like a fishy like me:
And I thought the convulsions were scary….
