Pink is so in right now! I love to wear it... especially on my insides!
This morning, following an intense workout that involved burpees and the Tabata timer, I whipped up a pink smoothie using frozen strawberries from OOB.
Here is the recipe (excuse gratuitous Sana product placement but, I can't help it... that's what I have in my 'smoothie stuff' drawer):
Post-Workout Glow Smoothie
- 1/2 can coconut water (~150 ml)
- 1/2 cup water
- tbsp Sana Unflavoured WPC (could also use Vanilla, but I've got a heap of earthquake damaged unflavoured to use up)
- 6 large frozen strawberries
- 1/2 banana
- 1/4 avocado
- 1/2 tsp Maca
- Pinch of kelp salt
- Pinch of Stevia Intense
How much Stevia?
I'm convinced that most Stevia haters just used waaaay too much of it. Always use less than you think you will need. This is a teaspoon, and the correct amount for a smoothie is just a little bit on the end of it (technically, 1/64). You can always add more if you like it sweeter, but you can't take it out once it's in your smoothie!
I would usually add some cacao beans to the mix for a nice kick, buuuut, I bought ridiculous straws, and the bean fragments don't travel up them without sticking. This makes for frustrating, red-faced, grunting smoothie slurping. (though amusing for anyone watching).
The result. One very attractive smoothie.
And one happy Sara.
Now I've got a paper to submit and then lots of Aunty time for Miss J in the last week of her holiday (those were the shortest six weeks ever! Waaaah!)
