Smoothies!

I apologize for the lack of menu plans lately. I have been so busy that we've just been eating whatever we can find in the fridge. Thankfully most of it is very healthy stuff we made of Memorial Day weekend and froze. I don't think I put this in my Memorial Day post, but we made a ton of peach ice cubes. We had a lot of peaches, but they were getting too ripe, and couldn't be cut into nice little slices. We decided to take them all, puree them, and stick them in the freezer. Worked great! I made myself a smoothie for breakfast - banana, peach puree cubes, almond milk, and flaxseed oil. It was really good. I think I'm going to have to do that more often. It was quick and painless, especially since I have a Magic Bullet. Very rarely do I promote 'As Seen on TV' ads, but the Magic Bullet really is awesome. I got mine for 'free' last year for my birthday. I had a 20% off coupon at Bed, Bath and Beyond, so I bought my fabulous KitchenAid stand-mixer (I got tired of waiting for my dad to die and will me his lol - I love my dad and don't want him to die, I just wanted his mixer!). The discount I got from the coupon paid for the Magic Bullet set I also bought that day.

Anyways - I tossed all the ingredients in a blender cup, blended (obviously!), then put one of the thread covers on the cup and walked out the door. It's so easy! Tomorrow will be blueberry banana or mango banana - that's the fruit I need to eat before it goes bad...

Do you make smoothies? What are your favorite ingredients?
