Sinless Smoothie

I’m going to give you one of those recipes that is really just a list of ingredients. I’m sorry. But it’s simple and straightforward and you should be able to recreate it without defined quantities.

I’m trying to reverse the weight damage that’s been done to me by a stressful school year and my idiotic obsession with things like chocolate, peanut butter, ice cream, and cake, and cake, and, well, cake.

So, I’m trying to kick the sweets, and junk, and fat, and carbs, and everything else that tastes good. It’s not easy. The good side of it is that it’s got my creative juices flowing again because I’m eager to have what I’m eating taste as good as it can so I’m not rummaging in the kids’ left over Easter candy anymore. (Yes, my kids still have Easter candy left. It got mixed in with what was left of their Halloween candy. I’m not kidding. Those two have more self-control than I ever do!)

I just hit a jackpot of sorts because of this smoothie I just made. It’s light yet  filling and rich. It’s low in fat and carbs but high on taste.
