Generally I am a creature of habit when it comes to my smoothies. I’m trying really hard to get creative with some of these because I also know if I make the same thing every day I am going to get bored and quit.
This recipe was from Day 4 of the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge. I had not been able to get to the store so I was scrounging through my cabinets and freezer to use ingredients on hand. I was actually quite surprised at how smooth and creamy this one turned out.
I was also pretty surprised at how easy it was to blend these cashew in my cheapie Kmart blender. Woot!
I think the added protein of the nuts was a good idea because I did not find myself feeling hungry after a few hours like I had with Day 1 and Day 2 smoothies. I’m also one of those people who eats a piece of fruit and 5 minutes later my stomach is growing and I am about to gnaw off my arm.
