Oh dear, I need a pick me up!

My afternoon started to drag, and I have a long day ahead of me still.  I had some foods here, but nothing that even qualified as quick and easy PLUS healthy.  I set work aside for a moment and searched for a new smoothie idea, ran to the store to grab the ingredients and had my afternoon snack.  This is what I found, and OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

Banana Blackberry Pomegranate Smoothie

I adjusted the recipe to fit my personal needs.  For example, the recipe calls for two bananas, and two bananas can contain 28 grams of sugar!  Yes, yes, it’s naturally occurring sugar, but you still don’t want to overdue it no matter what type of sugar.  Plus, yeast feeds off of sugar, and if you are like me and have an over abundance of yeast in your body, you don’t want to be feeding the yeast and helping it thrive!  Dude, yeast poops in you.  Dammit, I know all the little critters living in our body poops in some way, but I would prefer to limit the amount of yeast poop in me.  Remember, I am not a scientist or a doctor, so don’t go quoting me as fact!  But I am right, yeast poops.  Go on and Google that s%&t, you know, because the internet is always right.

GOOD GOLLY!  I did not mean to go on that tangent.  But I did, and now I digress and give you my modified version of the recipe in the link above.

Ingredients

1.5 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Pomegranate Powder

2 tbsp Chia Seeds

1/2 banana

1/2 organic apple

1 cup fresh blackerries

1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

Directions

Wash the apples and berries thoroughly. Add all ingredients to a blender and mix until well blended. Serve in a tall glass and enjoy!

I know, not a stellar photo, but I forgot to take one before I drank 1/2. Plus, you are not here for my photography skills.
