Easter Egg Smoothie

I failed to get into the Easter spirit this spring until today! The much needed sunshine and gloriously delicious temperature may have something to do with that.

A very berry smoothie for a light lunch. We’re eating a late Sunday afternoon meal around 4 so I don’t want to be too full to enjoy it!

In the blender:

  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup Lactaid fat free milk
  • 1/2 cup plain lowfat lactose free yogurt
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
  • 3 ice cubes

My mom made a really great point a few weeks ago when I mentioned that drinking your greens is all the rage. Digestion starts in the mouth so isn’t chewing your greens an important part of a healthy diet?

Well said, Mama!

However, today I wanted something to quench my thirst and refresh my palate =) Variety is a good thing!

Tart and sweet, ice cold (brainfreeze cold) and exactly what a sunny Sunday in April calls for.

Since you know I can’t stand a liquid meal, I toasted a whole spelt English muffin and topped it with Cedar’s taboule salad.

This is a great ready-made taboule. I’ve never made my own but someday (when finals and work and laundry aren’t taking over my life).

Off to my parents’ for our Easter meal/birthday celebration – cupcakes in hand. I’ve heard rumors that we’re grilling…
