My daughter Katelyn and I have gone on a few hikes together along with the dog, and inevitably, I crave “something” when I get home-more than water, but less than a meal. Katelyn then opened up the world of smoothies to me.
Did you know that there are not only smoothie drinks, but there are smoothie bowls too? Katelyn made a bowl for me once and it felt a little weird having my smoothie in a bowl. I still prefer something a little thinner that I can suck up with a straw, being the old school girl I am. Chia and flax seeds can be added for a bit more zip and granola can be sprinkled on top for a pop of crunch. This is particularly satisfying when I have a craving for something sweet… like a Coffee Crisp or a Kit Kat.
From watermelon to blueberries, strawberries to mangoes, she has concocted and experimented with creating fruit drinks regularly. Tic Tok gave her a ton of ideas, which she adapted into a smoothie that is uniquely hers.
When I asked her for one of her favorite smoothie recipes, she gave me a list of items and said, “I have no idea about the portions. I just put everything in the blender until it looks right.” So, I recognize this is not overly helpful, but I have watched her a few times make her masterpiece and am providing the portions below.
Give it a whirl, and adapt. Experiment and create your own smoothie for your own taste buds.
Stay sassy friends.
