How I got from fat to fit, among other bits of wisdom.

Going Bananas!

No evidence of green in this beauty!

We had some bananas that needed to be eaten.  Well, they weren’t quite to the point where my mother likes to eat them (almost black), but they were very ripe.  You should never run bananas through your juicer (too soft), so I juiced a recipe and then added the juice mixture to the blender with the banana and a cup of ice.

This is my third time adding banana and each time I think to myself, “Mmm, this is nice!”.

So – today’s breakfast was as follows:

Cranberry-Citrus-Banana Juice

  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 2 clementines, peels removed
  • 1 apple, cored and cubed
  • 1 cup cubed sweet potato
  • 1 cup packed chopped kale leaves
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup ice

Juice the cranberries (careful, they’re jumpers!), clementines, apple, sweet potato, and kale.

Put banana and ice in the blender.  Pour in juice.  Liquify.

Delicious and satisfying.  If it produces more juice than you care to drink, stick it in the fridge with a lid on it and save it for later.  I’m also going to try to freeze some juices so I can pull them out the next day and have them ready at lunch time.

  1. THanks for post! Hadn’t thought of cranberries…Ya know what I add to my smoothies? The tinsy crumbles from the frozen broccoli bag! 🙂

  2. @Sunny: Smart! I haven’t juiced broccoli yet, but I did buy a fresh bunch today. I want to make your kale and sweet potato soup!
