I feel like I keep posting about fast and easy foods. I’m sorry if I seem repetitive or uncreative, but convenience seems to be the headline for my life lately!!! If it takes me five minutes or less to make it, then I’m all in!!!
I have been living on smoothies. I mean who doesn’t love them. They are a great way to incorporate some extra greens, protein, fruits, and vitamins! They also don’t give you an overly full/ uncomfortable feeling. Yup, smoothies are awesome.
Normally, I just take whatever frozen berries I have laying in my fridge, throw in some greens, protein powder, spirulina, and chia seeds and call it a day. Today I was feeling more creative and inspired by the fall weather.
Isn’t this color green gorgeous?! Usually green smoothies come out a muddy green/brown color, but looks so appealing to me :) Wanna know what went into it?
Still interested?? Ok fine I’ll tell you :)
Asian Pear and Pistachio Smoothie
- 1 small asian pear
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 TBS pistachios
- 1 cup coconut milk (or almond, rice, soy etc)
- Spinach (as much as you want!)
- 1/2 tsp chia seeds
- 1 TBS protein powder
- 1/2 cup plain 0% greek yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 packets stevia (I like mine sweet, but add or subtract as you wish)
- 4 ice cubes
Blend all ingredients and enjoy!!!!
This was so incredibly satisfying. I also was obsessed with the texture. It was so smooth and balanced. Try it out.. I dare you :)
Well, life continues to be absorbed by Big Fish. I suppose it’s not a bad way to spend my time ;)
