a smoothie from only ingredients which i already had on-hand.

after my old blender broke, i went without smoothies for months, but i never drank them that frequently in the first place, to be fair. yet i wanted to get into making them more often because they're often such a healthy choice, and since i am someone who doesn't have much appetite for food in the morning but can drink and sip beverages down when it's still pre-afternoon time, i thought this might be a smart approach to be better to my health. 

fortunately, in deciding to ask around if anyone had any spare blenders since appliances are sometimes in doubles in households, with one sitting around waiting for a purpose again, it worked out that the first person i asked, my sister, had a backup blender to offer since she mostly works with her go-to nutribullet and only used her blender once. so it sat in a box after that initial use. and apparently, it was waiting for me to own it, ha. love at first smoothie.

since becoming the new owner of this blender yesterday, by this morning, while i knew i wanted to test out all sorts of new smoothie recipes, i decided just making up my own not-so-tracked recipe would be the best approach. plus, i felt really thirsty-hungry and wanted it ASAP ! here is a list of ingredients which i threw together in random little amounts for the above-glimpsed smoothie.

  • blueberries
  • cherries
  • mango
  • avocado
  • asparagus
  • baby carrots
  • lemon juice
  • apple juice
  • water 
  • ice cubes
  • nutmeg
  • cinnamon
  • maple syrup
  • hemp seeds
  • chia seeds

a few months ago, a too-sweet smoothie quickly taught me the value of lemon juice, which i adore in the first place since i love all things sour. so i am sure that helped in balancing out the flavor adequately in today's quick practice at the blender. it's so nice when you don't have to be so calculated and yet can still make something healthy, delicious, and filling. yum x 4982945832045.
