It’s a ShaMoothie!!

January 20, 2014

Shake or Smoothie?

What’s the difference? I never really know, but from what I’ve read today, it seems as though a smoothie is made with mostly fruit, and a shake is made with mostly milk? I typically make mine with 1 cup of Milk (Skim Milk, Whey Protein, Almond milk….etc), 1 Cup of frozen fruit, and whatever else I seem to throw in it! So it seems I’m right in the middle, making neither a Shake nor a Smoothie, but a ShaMoothie!! You think I can patent that?

Cherry Banana ShaMoothie!!

1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

1 Packet Truvia

1 Cup Frozen Cherries

1/2 Frozen Banana

2 Ice Cubes

Blend… your blender. 🙂



Other exciting things about Sunday? It was beautiful outside, so I took advantage of that and took a 4 mile walk and was able to breathe in some fresh air!!






I got out of the neighborhood and took one of my old routes. It was nice to have a little different view. However, just starting out, that sidewalk looked really long…….





Here are all the day’s eats……No lunch, but lot’s of snacking throughout the day.
