Happy Monday and MLK Jr. Day to you!
I thought I’d try a new smoothie recipe this morning. Years ago when I first started making smoothies I would see recipe after recipe using a packet of jello mix as the base- I never got around to trying it, until this morning. Here’s a tip for you DON’T! 😉 The jello base left it very grainy and that (mixed with the packet of stevia I threw in) made it way too sweet.
For sticks and giggles I figure I’ll share with you the recipe, so you can add it to a DO NOT MAKE list…
What you’ll need to NOT make this:
- 1 banana
- 6 frozen strawberries
- 1 large handful baby spinach
- 1 packet of sugar-free strawberry jello mix
- 1 packet Stevia
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon walnut pieces
- 1 tablespoon toasted wheat germ
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 cup water
- Blend all ingredients and DO NOT enjoy instead pour it down drain.
So yes, I will not be making this again. At the moment I am trying to determine if it can be salvaged- we shall see later if I am able to.
It’s my dad’s birthday today! YAY! I have lots to do before we meet up with the family for dinner and cake (or cupcakes). I’ll check in with you later. Have a great day!
Questions of the day
Do you have any smoothie fails to add to the list?
