Banana Nut Smoothie

Most mornings, I eat eggs. And veggies. But some days I am just Over. Eggs.  

Yes it happens!

Then I think back to when the bosses surprised me with that Vitamix for my Christmas bonus. THAT was a huge surprise ... and then I was on a mission ... success or failure, to make every attempt to post one recipe a week using the VitaMix to see if I can really incorporate it into my life ... 

I was so sad that I wasn't more excited about using it ... and I am still open to tips and recipes to try and share .... PLEASE!

Enough whining (I just feel real bad STILL as it's not a cheap gift by any means) ... 

Today's featured attempt was a fairly good success and I'm actually looking forward to making it for breakfast this week! 

Banana Nut Smoothies

2 frozen bananas (yes, do peel them before you freeze them. You are freezing your borderline overly ripe bananas, right?)
1 ripe pear, cut in half, seeds removed
1/4 cup raw nuts (not peanuts!), I used cashews (unsalted, unroasted)
1/2 cup water

Toss all of this in the VM and let it rip for about 2 minutes or til smooth. 

The original recipe called for vanilla flavored stevia and ice cubes. not sure why as it definitely does NOT need to have!

Give it a shot, let me know what you think?  Personally, I REALLY REALLY liked this ... not so much after brushing teeth but took it to work with me and whoa momma, it was good ... filled me up too for 3 plus hours which is a HUGE bonus!

I highly recommend this IF you like bananas ... Hubby would probably not appreciate it but I LOVE IT!

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
