The day after we returned to Raleigh recently, I awakened with tonsils so inflamed, I might hardly swallow water, a non-stop hacking cough and I seemed like Big Ang when I attempted to talk. (Yes, I recognize that precisely 2 of you get the Big Ang referral, however I’m alright with that.) I instantly got my iPhone and Googled to discover the signs of SARS and I was alleviated to discover that I did not appear to have SARS. But then I recognized that might just suggest something:
I need to have usage.
So given that I have usage and all, this weekend looked like an excellent chance to review this Raspberry Banana Chia Smoothie recipe. I began dealing with it about a month and a half earlier. You ‘d believe a smoothie recipe would be quite straight-forward, however for some factor it took me a great deal of attempts to get this one right. Seeing as my tonsils have to do with the size of golf balls today, I desired it to be a bit thinner than I normally make my shakes, so I chose to include less raspberries this time around. I believe that was the crucial to lastly (FINALLY!) nailing this recipe– less raspberries indicated the smoothie wasn’t so tart. In truth, I didn’t even include any sweetener to mine, although you might wish to taste yours and include a little if required.
