Thanksgiving is upon us. Food, food and more food. I always vow I won’t overindulge.
And then? The stuffing, the gravy, the mashed potatoes – they form a coalition to completely wreck my willpower. Cranberry sauce joins the party and I’m defenseless.
I wake up the next morning in a shroud of regret, doing the food walk of shame. Of course, I try to burn as much as I can hitting up the Black Friday sales, but I can’t go in on an empty stomach.
That’s where my Super Duper Smoothie comes into play. Packed with vitamin c, fiber, antioxidants and protien, it’s just the right mix to help battle the maniacs in the mall. Even if you don’t brave the Black Friday sales, whip up this smoothie for a little detox, and to help avoid eating a turkey sandwich
and a slice of pie for breakfast!
Super Duper Smoothie
Combine the following in a blender:
1/2 cup plain, fat-free greek yogurt or kefir (I love kefir – it’s a like a mix between milk and yogurt)
1 cup frozen fruit – I like blueberries and mangos.
2 T psyllium husks – you can find this at Trader Joe’s or a health food store
1 serving vitamin c crystals – I also find these at Trader Joe’s or the health food store
honey or agave to taste
Blend until the smoothie is your desired consistency, adding water as needed. Serves one.
