Almost everyday for lunch I drink this smoothie along with leftovers or a quinoa salad. It should be no surprise I eat a lot of quinoa salads. What I like about the smoothie is the ingredients are relatively cheap and the magic bullet is able to make a smooth smoothie. Losing access to a VitaMix is tough, but I’m surviving and improvising.
I drink the smoothie for the nutritional value more than anything. Since stopping a regular vitamin routine, I feel good knowing I’m putting vitamins into my system through whole foods each day. I listed the nutritional value to satisfy my own curiosity about what I was putting into my body and to justify this continued practice. It’s all worth it! Smoothie for everyone!
Add frozen strawberries.
