Have A Smooth Weekend

Posted by on Aug 22, 2014 in Health & Food, Life & Adventures | 0 comments

Hi little Turnips, I hope you have a wonderfully smooth and fun weekend! This is mine and Chris’s last weekend before we start back to school! I can’t believe it. Where did this summer go? This is Chris’s last year of his undergrad program, and in January I will be applying to 4 year universities. We have spent the last week-in-a-half dreaming about the future, with a lot of what-if’s and wouldn’t that be cool if… It will be fun, exciting and a little scary to see where we will be off to next. I hope you enjoy sharing this journey with us, through Turnip Tootsie.

Here is treat from me to you. If your in the mood for a smoothie, that is filling and good for your brain (because of the flax seed) here is a great recipe for you…

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

1 cup of almond milk

2 Tbs of ground flax seed

2 tsp of unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 tsp of vanilla

1 Tbs of almond butter

1 cup of ice cubes

Yield: serves 1

Blend until smooth and enjoy!

I love this smoothie for breakfast, it’s a great way to set a healthy tone for the day!
