First of all - Hello!
I hope you are having a lovely day so far, if not - why not make a cherry pie smoothie? Hell, even if you're having a good day, that is just as good enough a reason to whip up this luscious smoothie!
When I saw Katrina's "Blueberry Coconut Milk Smoothie", my first reaction was "I need this in my life!" then I realised I didn't have any blueberries at hand....The disappointment! BUT what I did have, is also a well known delicious berry-thing that works well in pies: Cherry! And so off I went first thing in the morning and had this for breakfast.
Cherry Pie Smoothie
1 cup light coconut milk, about 200-250ml
1/2 cup fresh cherries, pitted
1 small frozen banana, or 1/2 a large one
2 tbsp oats
3-4 pecans (or cashews, almonds...)
A few drops vanilla extract
A good pinch of cinnamon
A slightly smaller pinch nutmeg
Chopped pecans, granola or crumbled sweet crackers to top with
- You know how the rest goes - pop everything into a blender or use a stick blender and whizz until smooth. Pour into a tall glass (mine was too tall, so I opted for a wine glass - fancy!), and top with the sprinkle of choice. Et voilâ! And that covers two of your five a day, magic!
Aaaaalso, there was a certain mentioning of good news yesterday, was it not? Well let me tell you who handed in her resignation today!
Yours truly, as I will not be working in an office anymore, yay! I've gotten a job in one of the Street kitchens in town, so needless to say - I am pretty excited! I finish up my "old" job next Wednesday, taking a few days off, and then it'll kick off, and I cannot wait!
I hope you are all having a good week so far!
