It may sound weird, but one of the things that I am most about graduating this year is the fact that I will finally be able to eat lunch at my own time.
Any guesses on my absurd lunch time this year?
Yep…if it was my choice I would not even be awake at that time! 9:45…who seriously would ever think that is somewhat close to a normal lunch time?! Anyways, I eat my lunch like an obedient little student, and then by my final class of the day it sounds like my stomach is playing it’s theme song. Yes, I could bring snacks and save some of my lunch for later, but something about being the only one in class, making all the eating and chewing noises pushes me away a little. So there is my life problem in a nut shell for you. It’s a torturous life, but someone’s got to live it (sarcasm..)
So here is a wonderful smoothie I love to make that energizes me and fills me up when I get home. If I woke up early enough, this would be awesome as a breakfast smoothie before I take off to school, but I guess you can’t win em all. One of my favorite things about this smoothie is that it is 100% fruit, and with the frozen banana, a creamy smoothie is made!
“After School Snack” Smoothie
1/2 cup sliced, frozen bananas
1/4 cup blackberries
1/3 cup blueberries
1/4 cup juice (I used cranberry-grape juice, but grape or cranberry on their own would work well, this juice is not totally necessary)
- In a blender, blend together all the ingredients until smooth and you don’t hear the frozen bananas making a ruckus anymore.
