Summer Yellow Smoothie

It feels so foreign to be typing this post!  I can’t lie, I’ve missed you guys!

Today’s post is just a quick smoothie I whipped up today.  Also, try to spot something that doesn’t belong in the picture 😛

Banana Mango Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 100 g Banana or a Medium Banana
  • 90 g frozen mango chunks (thawed) or about a Handful of Mango Chunks
  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • Sweetener (optional)

Directions

  • Cut up your banana into medium slices and toss into your blender.
  • Pour in your almond milk and blend for 1-2 seconds, enough to break up the banana.
  • Add thawed mango.  I use thawed mango here because my blender will not break up frozen chunks, it just makes a lot of loud noises!  Blend until the mango is incorporated.
  • Add crushed ice and if your using a sweetener throw it in here and then blend until smooth.

I was going to add some Vanilla Protein Powder to mine to jazz it up but I checked the pantry and I am completely out.  This isn’t a surprise since I haven’t had protein powder since last September!

My smoothie was 170 calories, 2 grams of protein, and 4 grams of fiber. It’s a tasty base so you can definitely add some more nutritious add ins.

Since it’s so light, this is a great drink for a Summer Lunch or even Dinner!  The banana and mango go great together and it’s so pretty to eat!

I’ll be posting a lot more often guys, this past week was pretty loco!

Sunday Brunch

I woke up a little past Ten o’clock this morning and really wasn’t in the mood to eat.  So, I chatted on the phone a bit with my Mom and read some of my book.  My Family is at my brothers basketball Tournament and I have to give him a shout out!  Congrats on your first win, Greg!!!  He scored 9 points this morning and helped his team win their first game! (He also promised me the first basket 🙂 )

Brunch today consisted of a Tofu Scramble ‘Egg’ Sandwich and fresh fruit.

Freshly mangled  cut mango and banana.  The mango was really ripe and I seriously mangled that bad boy.  The rest will go into smoothies and oatmeal!

Before assembling:  Scrambled Tofu, Spinach, Bell Peppers, and Ezekiel 4:9 Bread.

Even though brunch was great, I had 15 g (1 tbs) of Chocolate Chips afterwards.  I wanted something sweet and that really hit the spot!  With chocoalte chips, brunch was 416 calories, 21 grams of protein, and 12 grams of fiber.

I think I need to hide the chocolate chips 😛

Banana-Mango Oats!

This morning I decided to play with flavors and came up with a bowl of Banana AND Mango oatmeal!

Fluffy Bananas, Mango, Flax Seeds, a dash of cinnamon and splenda, and Almond Milk!

With coffee, breakfast was 293 calories, 8 grams of protein, and 8 grams of fiber!

I’m almost out of Spring Blend coffee… I need to buy a bag ASAP!  I’m also exhuasted.   I wonder why 😛

Strawberries, Mangos, and Oats… Oh my!

I am in such a good mood this morning!

For breakfast, I went back to my trusty oats and coffee!  Oatmeal keeps me satisfied for such a long period of time, I am starting to think they are magical 😉

Oats, Flax Seed, Almond Milk, Fresh Strawberries, and Fresh Mango!

Mmmm, this fresh take on my morning oats comes in at 275 calories, 8 grams of protein, and 9 grams of fiber.

Kath’s Mango, Black Bean, Coconut Cabbage Stir-Fry

Kath made this delicious dish earlier this week and I knew I had to make it!  I stuck to her recipe, just modifying the coconut-raisin sauce.  For my sauce, I used 2 oz light coconut milk, 2 oz almond milk, and a mini box of raisins.  The cabbage was steamed and then cooked on the stove with sea salt, ground coriander, and pepper.  I seared the mango and red pepper while I heated up some rinsed black beans in the microwave. 

This recipe was seriously as good as it looks!!  I actually doubled the above ingredients and made a plate for my mother!  She really enjoyed it 🙂

365 calories, 14 grams of protein, and 14 grams of fiber!
