Smoothie Tuesday

I'm really spacing out today so for today I'm going to give you my favorite smoothie recipe in the morning that is really quick and easy. I was going to write up a long post but I'm nervous about my job interview tomorrow; lets just say it's my second interview in a year. I'm so freaked out but excited and oh so so nervous; so I'm not focusing very well today due to the nerves.

So on to the recipe, it's fairly simple you can change out the plant based milk to almond or even oat. Even the fruits can be switched out too, in this recipe I used strawberries and banana's that's what I had in my kitchen. Also fresh ground peanut butter is preferred in the recipe but I was out so I used jarred. On to the recipe:

Strawberry & Banana Coconut Smoothie:
  • One Medium Size Banana
  • About 5 Strawberries ( 1/2 cup - 1 cup depending on how strawberries you want)
  • 2 tbsp of ground flax seed
  • 1 cup of Unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • A pinch of green powder
  • 8 Ice Cubes
  • 1 tbsp Peanut or Almond Butter (Fresh Ground) Optional
Smoothie before the milk is add in & it's been blend.
I basically throw it all in a single serving size blender like the bullet but mine's not the bullet though. So I put my smoothie in the blender cup in this order: ice cubes, banana, strawberries, flax seed, green powder and then the cup of coconut milk then the nut butter if I want it.  Then you just blend together until it's smooth or to the texture you want it to be.  

I didn't get a picture of a the finished product, I was way to hungry this morning and well it disappeared before I got my camera out.  However instant of the finished product, I'm to give leave you with a picture of my favorite cat right now; he's not mine I wish he was though.

 He's in a animal shelter here in Houston called CAP ( Citizens For Animal Protection), he was given to that shelter from another shelter in Houston for a second chance. His name is Snicker's he's declawed and a sweetheart, I would know I got to hang out and play with him in a room for an hour. I'm sad that I couldn't adopted him, because he's been going from one shelter to another shelter. 

Have you ever come across animal that you want to adopt but couldn't?
Leave a comment Below.


  1. The smoothie sounds great! I have a single serving blender, too, and love it. It gets a lot of use.

    Snickers is adorable & I'm sorry that you can't adopt him. We've been there, too, which is always so hard.

    Best of luck on your interview!!

  2. Thanks Molly, I think I'm going to need the luck cause I have two interviews now. One tomorrow and one on Thursday.

    I think I'm going to have to buy a new single serving blender, I think I might have almost killed my motor in it.

    I love me a good smoothie! What's the green powder you mentioned?

    Good luck on your interview tomorrow! :)

  4. The smoothie sounds delicious. I would probably slurp it up before taking a pic, too!

  5. Sounds delicious! And aww, what a cute cat! I hope he finds a home!

  6. Thank you for the good luck. The green powder I speak of is from HealthForce SuperFoods Vitamineral Green 4.8

  7. Me too I'm going to check on him this week at the animal shelter to see.

  8. Smoothies make for awesome snacks...meals...desserts... they're pretty much awesome anytime and for any reason. I love using frozen bananas, makes the smoothie taste just like a milkshake! :)

  9. As much as I love animals I'm pretty allergic, especially to cats. I can't decide if this is a good or bad thing because I have a bleeding heart. If I wasn't allergic my apartment might be overrun with critters!
