I missed Meatless on Monday #11 (almost)

Many of you are gearing up for fall, getting out those sweaters and pulling out your stew recipes.  I on the other hand am trying to stay cool.  Sunday the temp her in sunny south Florida was 89 degrees.  While that doesn't sound outrageous, it's still warm.  Add to that...On Monday our AC went out.  Guess what, It's STILL out!

So why am I telling you all of this?  There was no way I was cooking or eating anything warm on Monday.  We ate cold salads and yummy veggie/protein shakes all day.  Below I added a few of my favorite smoothie recipes.  Enjoy!

Banana Berry Blast
from Standard Process
source
1/2 cup Blueberries
1/2 cup strawberries
1 banana
2 scoops SP Complete
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil (optional)
1-2 cups water
Ice cubes

Blend all ingredients thoroughly.  Optional ingredients: Flax seeds, yogurt.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
from Standard Process
1/2 cup organic pumpkin
1 banana
1 tablespoon flax oil
a dash of ginger and cinnamon (or ground cloves)

Ice cubes

Blend all ingredients thoroughly.  Optional ingredients: yogurt, pumpkin pie spice.

  3. I've never thought to add grapeseed oil to a smoothie, but I'll have to try that next time. I'm in Texas, so it's not soup weather here either.

  18. Looks wonderful! Is the SP essential? (Whatever that may be - I'm guessing a protein drink of some sort)Or is it good without?

    1. SP Complete is a whole-food protein powder from Standard Process. It isn't mandatory. You could probably add yogurt and it would be delicious. I use SP Complete because it contains vegetables and essential nutrients.
      Thanx for stopping by. Join me for the giveaway tomorrow!
