Hubby and I are usually the last to try new trends or fads whether it’s food or clothes.  About 2 months ago I decided to try making smoothies and we both decided that they tasted good and were refreshing.

Instead of cooking breakfast, I make smoothies for us in my old blender, no fancy machine here, but it works fine. We have them at least 2 0r 3 times a week.

Our favorite is the strawberries and bananas. I always use frozen bananas and just change up the fruit.DSCN0902My recipe is as follows:

1 1/2 frozen banana

about 8 strawberries, fresh or you can freeze your fruit ( or you can decide how much fruit you want in it).

1 cup yogurt ( I like vanilla).

1 cup almond milk plain or vanilla flavored

about 4 ice cubes.

flax seed meal or wheat germ ( I put in about 3 tablespoons).

honey (optional) you can decide the amount

Blend all together.

This makes enough for 2 16 oz. servings.


Pour, serve and enjoy.♥♥♥♥


I am not a dietician, so I’m not sure what the calorie amount is, or the nutrition information, but this definitely works for us.

Thank you for stopping by.♥


Yes, it’s almost January 2, and I’m late in wishing a Happy New Year to everyone, but I’ve been sick and haven’t felt like doing much of anything.

But life must continue and I do hope all of you had a great New Year with good health and family.

For 6 days now we have  been eating, tamales, turkey, cookies, candy, monkey bread and my sister-in-law just brought us bunuelos , so guess what? I am really craving vegetables and fresh fruit!  I will start eating some mañana !

Also, one of my resolutions is to straighten up my end table in our bedroom .  Tomorrow  sounds good. This is what it looks like right now.
