I recently browsed back through my blog posts for the last month or so. I guess it’s been a long time since I’ve posted any “photographic” or artistic images — more posts about what I’m doing from day to day. I do love looking for beautiful things to photograph. But, I suppose that I’ve been less focused on that lately. That’s ok – my life is full of both the beautiful and the mundane 🙂 so, you get a little of both here on sheila365.
Speaking of the mundane… I thought I’d share something that I enjoy with you. A few years ago my sister, Noreen, introduced me to a really easy to make smoothie. And I think it’s delicious. I have been making myself one every morning for the last several weeks. Try it, you’ll like it 🙂
1 cup (8 oz) V8 V-Fusion juice
1/2 to 1 cup frozen fruit
Pick the juice flavor and fruit you like best. Pour juice in blender, add frozen fruit and blend til smooth. That’s it. The first time you make it, you’ll have to play around a bit to find the fruit-to-juice ratio that works best with your blender. I find that it works perfect if I put in only enough fruit to stay below the level of the liquid… but if you add too much fruit, and your blender gets a bit bogged down, just add a little bit more liquid.
I avoid any diet drinks with aspartame, but found that I do prefer the V8 V-fusion Light version of the juice. The regular version is just too sweet for me. The Light version contains sucralose, though, so if you don’t want any of that, stick with the regular.
An added bonus: 8 oz of V8 V-fusion juice contains 1 serving of vegetable and 1 serving of fruit.
