An Apple, With A Cherry Smoothie

IMG_5184

After our usual giant Sunday breakfast, I wasn’t hungry yet for lunch when DH was, so I gave him the rest of the lentil soup, and an hour or so later I had a typical “GIRL FOOD” snack.
I took one of the whole wheat pancakes from breakfast and smeared it with coconut cream, and then a layer of peanut butter.  I washed it down with the quasi smoothie drink you see above.  It is yogurt, orange juice, and tart cherry juice.
Both items were very yummy and satisfying.

    Looks good – I like the idea of the cherry juice. I usually put yogurt and half a banana in my smoothies to thicken them up, and then the usual veggies and/or fruits. So good. Especially on hot days when I don’t feel like cooking.

      This wasn’t a real smoothie, i.e. I didn’t whirl it in any kind of appliance. I just shook it up together in a plastic container and then poured it into the glass. That’s why you see little flecks of yogurt. It would be easy to do in a pint jar – just break up the yogurt (my homemade stuff is VERY thick) if necessary, and shake it heartily. If you have a spring whisk, that would do a good job of breaking up the yogurt. Then drink it straight out of the jar. Drinking it out of the jar provides the bonus that you aren’t losing the coolness in the jar to the glass that you pour it into, so the whole thing stays colder.

      I just have a regulation spring whisk, but I see this one at Amazon

      and that would be my choice were I buying one today. You will be surprised at how well they work for the small amount of space they take up. They come with short handles and long – get one that is at least ten inches long. My short one is languishing in the holder on the counter. It is awkward to get any “push” into it because there isn’t enough handle to hold onto to really get anything accomplished.

      It whisks a lot of air into eggs for an omelette, so if you like fluffy omelettes, this does the trick quite nicely. I also whisk up the eggs considerably for pancakes, too, and that seems to make them a bit lighter. I haven’t tried it on just whites, so don’t know if it would do enough to whip them up for a meringue.

    The apple doesn’t look very edible, but the juice definitely does! Yum!
