Book: I hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine’s Day!!! I forgot to post the sugar cookies I made for the Super Bowl last week, so here they are!
I found a science project book at the library – it was published in 2000 that states that the public is now moving towards margarine and away from butter because it is more “heart healthy”. And then goes on about the experiment. Ha! Too bad he didn’t do experiments on trans fats and cholesterol….
Recipe: I needed to use up my extra spinach and got really tired of salad. This smoothie fit the bill. Even Juliana drank it all 🙂
You really taste the oats which to me isn’t a bad thing. Certainly yummy and delicious, smoothie creamy and tastes like a bowl of cold banana oatmeal… in a good way. Next time, I might try adding a little dash of cinnamon.
- 3/4 cup milk or almond milk
- 1/2 banana (or frozen banana)
- 1 handful spinach (about 1 cup)
- 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 Tb. ground flaxseed
- 4-5 ice cubes (optional but I like it cold)
- Blend it all up and drink! I blend everything but the ice first. Once the smoothie is smooth, I add the ice.
