Simple Clementine Smoothie

5 WWPP Posted by 4 years ago 1 Comments

I go through smoothie waves. Some months I’m making them almost daily and then for some reason, I forget to even consider them an option. Normally I rediscover the yumminess when my fridge is empty and I’m scrounging around for a half decent breakfast, like today.

The fridge may be empty but I happen to have a full fruit basket of ripening clementines and bananas. Both of which are not going to last much longer. So I decided a quick, refreshing smoothie was in order. Clementine Smoothie

I kept the ingredients simple. I would have added fresh spinach but, as my empty fridge suggests, I had none.

Here’s what I did…

  • 2 clementines peeled and separated
  • 1/2 rip banana
  • 15 ice cubes (separated)
  • 1/4 cup fat free greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tbsp honey

Put everything in the blender or bullet and process until smooth.

I first blend with 5 ice cubes and then add additional ones once everything liquefies to get to the smoothie consistency I want. Sometimes shoving all the ice cubes in at first is too much for my little bullet to handle. :)

Enjoy!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
