Coffee – and lots of it – has been part of my morning since my late teen years. I’ve cut out the sugar, but still use cream. I can drink it black, but I prefer the cream. And, while the Riverman enjoys coffee, his day is not complete without at least one smoothie. So, our morning ritual now includes coffee and a smoothie.
Part of the reason we planted kale, spinach, and chard this year was to have fresh greens for our smoothies. We typically buy the “power greens” at the co-op, but it doesn’t make sense during the growing season, when we can grow our own. Same thing applies for the berries.
The Riverman uses water and I use kefir for liquid. We both add a little almond milk. The rest of the ingredients are almonds (or walnuts), chia seeds, oat bran, bananas, and flax seeds. The frozen berries make for an almost “shake-like” consistency. Mmmmm. Smoothalicious! What’s your favorite smoothie recipe?
