For some weird reason, I have been experiencing loss of appetite since two days. You know how breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I try not to skip it but today just the thought of ‘food’ was highly unappealing. As the day passed, I felt weaker.. something HAD to go inside my system to keep me going right? So I checked fridge, there were a lot of goodies except, I didn’t feel like eating.
Found some apples and guavas.. But who wants to go through the lengthy process of cutting. biting and chewing the fruity chunks. (I can get so lethargic at times :$)
Eating a banana looked like my last resort as it’s the only fruit I live on when I’m in this mode of decreased appetite. Banana is a no-fuss fruit for me. Just peel and you are good to go. But then some dates caught my eye. Pronto that gave me the idea “why don’t I just cut these fruits roughly, simply throw them into the blender, puree and chug the resulted smoothie ?”
Sounded something I could use to give me instant energy boost plus “drinking” seemed more palatable to me than “eating” right then. So I went ahead and this is how it turned out…
The texture looked so smoooth and custardy (I LOVE custard) that it sparked some appetite in me. The mellow taste was delightful to my temporarily bored tastebuds, which I enjoyed with every sip. And this delicious whipped smoothie immediately revived my energy!
Here is what was needed:
- 2 golden apples
- 2 bananas
- 1 guava (you can scoop out the seeds because they don’t blend well)
- 3-4 semi-ripe dates flesh (go for the ripe variety for more sugary taste)
- Half glass of chilled orange juice
- You can even include half teaspoon of grated ginger if you want to spice up your smoothie
- If mango is in the season, it could make another wonderful tropical addition to this yellow smoothie!
So these were all the ‘yellows’ that was needed to make this delightful tropical smoothie. There is so much rave about GREEN smoothies these days, they are almost ruling most diet plans. Do check out CHUG YOUR GREENS, they have some incredible green smoothie recipes!
