Smoothie Adventures...

Still the question most-asked me, is "what's in the smoothie I see you drinking?"

Tonight I made a big, three-Blender-Bottle brew, nearly exploding the Blend Tec. I was holding the top on for dear life during the final cycle! Here's what went into tonight's blender-full:

Half can coconut milk, water, about a cup of unsweetened coconut flakes, a good 18 or so raw almonds, four scoops Progenex More Muscle whey protein powder, eight or so strawberries, a very ripe banana, a Granny Smith apple, a carrot, a mango...... and a whole hell of a lot of kale. I'd say three big stalks, cut off with scissors. Blend hard, then do it again.

Keep in mind, these shakes aren't snacks. They're entire meals. Each has a good 30-40 grams of protein, a decent but not too big slug of carbs, and good fat from the coconut milk and almonds. I consume them slowly, sipping when I am able. Some cold coffee blended in is good, too, if you have it on hand.

Produces three thick, wonderful tasting, ugly-appearing meals in a Blender Bottle. I froze two of 'em, one's in the fridge to carry to the gym tomorrow in my FitMark meal tote.
