works-for-me wednesday - smoothies
Wow! My first EVER Works-For-Me Wednesday - how exciting! :) What works for me? Smoothies, that's what. And, in particular, recycled smoothies.
My son is a big yogurt fan but sometimes his eyes are bigger than his stomach. Instead of ditching that leftover 1/4 cup of pricey soy yogurt & fresh fruit, I pop it in an ice cube tray and freeze it. (I also do this with any fruits on the verge of being overripe.) When it's time to make a smoothie - a favorite around here - I just add some fresh yogurt, fresh or frozen fruit, some soy milk or OJ, and a couple of my cubes and blend. A good way to reduce waste and recycle something headed for the disposal!
If you're looking for some good smoothie recipes, I like this book. I'm also looking forward to trying one of these soon...spinach in a smoothie...who knew?!
