Helloooo March. I just have one question:
WHO'S READY FOR SPRINGTIME?!
Lemme tell ya, that vernal equinox can't get here fast enough. Daylight Saving Time too. Daffodils. Sunny afternoons. Warm breezes. T-shirts. I'll take any and all of the above starting now.
My winter appetite for fatty foods is waning (thank goodness) in direct response to the recent increase of not-just-apple-and-root-vegetable items at the farmer's market....the variety could bring a tear to one's eye.
During the month of March, as a tribute to the lush produce displays popping up across the land, I am going to feature a different fruit smoothie every week. So go ahead, grab that extra carton of strawberries and that extra pound of peaches, baby! Bring it all home, dust off your blender, and drink to your health. First up, we have:
For the goddess of wisdom, here is a smoothie with superfoods for the brain.
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1 heaping tablespoon natural almond butter
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
dash almond/soy/coconut milk
Throw all ingredients into your blender. Blend until velvety. This one is sure to get your noggin goin'.
Enjoy! And be sure to check back all month for more smoothie concoctions!
