Taking survey of my fridge, I realized the perfect answer to a cooking-free day: a smoothie.
The best thing about a smoothie is you get a lot of nutrients and don’t have to do a lot – just blend and sip. Of course, since this is early spring produce, that means that the fruit isn’t so sweet (okay, the blueberries are downright sour!) so I added a little sugar to make up for it. So sue me. I needed it to be sweet.
1/4 cup blueberries
1 cup skim milk
1 cup ice
1 tbsp superfine sugarCombine all ingredients in a blender and blend until well mixed.
This recipe calls for superfine sugar. Please note that is not the same as confectioners sugar. It is like granulated, except it dissolves faster and easier into liquids. Domino’s makes it, and it can be found in most grocery stores (now before you go off on me because you don’t think yours carries it, check. I didn’t think mine did, but was surprised to find it right next to the Sugar in the Raw).
Also, for added nutrition, you could throw in a little protein powder too. Don’t ask me what kind or how much, I haven’t a clue, but I thought of that while consuming my smoothie this morning.
