Apricot, Peach and Plum Breakfast Smoothie

I’m not a huge smoothie/juice person but I do enjoy them from time to time, especially when I can feel good about not wasting fruit that’s starting to look forlorn. Yesterday morning I mixed one up with some peach soy yogurt, two small apricots, a plum, and two ice cubes. I have a stick blender that my mother in law gave me and not only is it completely easy to store, but it’s one of the most useful and versatile things I have in my kitchen. Thanks, Linda!
I was going to add some spinach but the smoothie turned out to be such a pretty color I just couldn’t bear to mess it up.
At the last minute, as I put the spinach back in the fridge, I grabbed the chia seeds and threw in a tablespoon. Check out what you get out of a tablespoon of chia seeds:

According to Spectrum Organics, chia seeds also have a higher antioxidant level than blueberries! Woot.

I didn’t use banana only because I didn’t have any. Chia seeds gel up like flax seeds though so the texture was fine.

You can also check out my inventory page. I’ve updated it by crossing out stuff I’ve used. I can’t believe it’s been three days and I’ve hardly made a dent. If I’ve learned anything thus far, it’s that I don’t need nearly as much food as I think I do.

A confession that I ought to make is that I cheated on Tuesday. It’s true. But, it’s not totally my fault: a friend and I were supposed to go to the beach but the weather didn’t hold so we got coffee and went to Flying Apron, a vegan and gluten free cafe. She’s GF and I like to try to be vegan most of the time, so it was a fun little adventure. But, other than that, I haven’t bought a thing for the kitchen (except for some wine, but that doesn’t really count, right?). I love this challenge!
