I’ve decided that I’m going to try this new thing on my blog. I’m going to try to give some recipes for things that I eat on a regular basis or try for the first time. This is mainly for my own personal record, because sometimes I can’t remember something really good that I made, since I rarely follow the directions of recipes.
My mom always taught me that you’ve got to know the rules to break them. I follow this general philosophy in my life life for just about everything, but especially in cooking. I watch Food Network or read recipes online and think…WOW that looks good, but there are too many steps and I am not about that life. So, I improvise. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn’t.
It’s like a science experiment.
Here are some guidelines for a Date Shake that I made after class this morning:
What you need
Almond Milk (1 cup-2 cups)
2 heaping spoonfuls of greek yogurt
1-2 Handfuls of Spinach
A couple frozen strawberries or ice cubes (basically something that will make your smoothie cold)
1/2 of a banana
pinch of pumpkin pie spice
BLEND THAT SHIT.
Side note: make sure you chop your dates super fine, otherwise you will get huge-ass chunks of dates at the bottom of your glass.
I call it a shake because it’s super sweet, it almost tricks your body into thinking it’s drinking a shake. Also, it’s quite filling, it’s a meal.
