Basil Smoothie

Looks like most of us loved the second photo of our mung bean socca cereal!

Photography is something I am still learning. As I mentioned briefly before, I am working on a building a photography website as my final project for class. I am pretty excited for it, have a lot of ideas for the site. I look forward to sharing it all with you once I am done :)

As much as I love having cereal for breakfast, my body seems to still prefer smoothies first thing.

Basil is one of my favorite herbs. I have made a basil smoothie before but made it more savory this time (and sugar free of course).

Lori and I’s basil smoothie was filled with about 2-3 cups water, 2 avocados,  two handfuls of fresh basil, 1 cucumber, 1 celery stalk, and a little sunflower lecithin (emulsifier, helps with texture)

Blend till creamy and sip as you enjoy the day outside :)

Thank you all for the wonderful support of our bakery news.

We are excited to see our bakery grow, but with that comes more long hours in the kitchen, and less time on the computer. So our blogging schedule may not me very consistent, just want to let you all know and apologize in advance.

Twins Question: Have you done your taxes? Lori and I finished ours the other day, and boy does it feel great to have them done!

Till next time,

Michelle

    That sounds delicious!

    I did my taxes a couple weeks ago. Couldn’t wait to get them done and out of the way!

  6. Ohhh I love the idea of adding basil to a smoothie!! I actually have some in the fridge right now and feel like it would be an amazing addition to a green monster with some strawberries….mmmm. So summery!!

  7. The breakfast smoothie looks great, I need to try savory smoothies. I prefer them as my breakfast too as a nice way to get a jump on veggies and nutrients and protein for the day.

    I’m super excited for your bakery! Just wish I lived closer! and what a refreshing green smoothie, great for the tummy.

    I’m going to have to try that smoothie out. Sounds yummy. I usually do a frozen cucumber, celery, lime, lemon, mint, avocado, stevia smoothie. It tastes even better with granny smith apple, but I’m leaving that out for now and add shredded coconut and alcohol free almond extract and sometimes sun warrior brown rice protein. Does the sunflower lecithin really make a difference? I might have to get some.
