Gluten Free/Grain Free/Vegan/Soy Free
I fall of the portion control wagon, fairly often. I eat healthy, but MAN-O-MAN! I can put it down. I try not to be emotionally controlled by my scale, but I fail at that too. Now, if my pants start to feel tight, in addition to those two things,…WATCH OUT! I start to get cranky, cranky and maybe a little more, cranky. Once I get my emotional instabilities in check, I begin thinking quickly and always come up with the same Ah Ha! Moment….I’m eating TOO MUCH! So, I then start thinking how I can put myself in check; for me, healthy smoothies are the way to go. They are delicious, filling, nutritious and my body doesn’t place them directly on my thighs and stomach. **Bonus reasons are that both the King Dad and the Prince enjoy them.
OH! And recently organic pineapples have been on sale, so I knew that I needed to make a smoothie with fresh pineapple.
So be good to your taste buds and to the buttons on your jeans and go whip yourself up a smoothie.
What you need:
2 frozen bananas, organic, (tip *peel and chop prior to freezing)
½ cup pineapple, organic, freshly peeled, cored and chopped (unsweetened canned will work)
Zest from one organic orange
Juice from 2 medium to large oranges (about ¾ cup), organic, freshly squeezed
1/3 to ½ cup almond/coconut milk, unsweetened (amount depends on desired consistency)
What you do:
Place all ingredients into blender. I tend to start with liquids. Blend until “smoothie”, ha!
This smoothie is only naturally sweetened and we LOVE it, if you need more sweetness…squeeze the ole’ organic raw honey bear a time or two.
