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.
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
- ½ rip banana
- 15 ice cubes (separated)
- ¼ cup fat free greek yogurt
- ½ 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. 🙂
