Happy New Years, Slow Roasters!  Hope you all had an amazing Christmas and New Years.  We really enjoyed spending time with our loved ones.

It doesn’t quite feel like January, it was 83 here today in Arizona.  I imagine our picture gave that away. 

First of the year means time for resolutions.  I have been teetering on this healthy eating wagon for many months now, so I have decided that I am going to get on that wagon!  So over the next few weeks (and hopefully months) you will find flavorful, delicious dishes most of which will not bust your calorie budget.  You will also find incredibly tasty options for entertaining (Wednesday’s The Happy Hour) and also delicious healthy snacks for your munchkins.  There will be more decadent dishes from time to time, as I am feeding a family and will share some of those dishes with you too.  We will of course still have our cocktails (Ladies Night on Thursday)!

Today we have a fabulous smoothie to get your week started.  Mr W and Em enjoy this smoothie nearly every morning!  For my family this is a healthy breakfast replacement.  With the ingredients we use, this delicious filling smoothie has 238 Calories, .5g Fat, 46 Carbs, 10g Protein.  The carbs from the banana are great for early morning energy.  This recipe makes 2 -24 ounce smoothies.  You could serve it as a delicious mid-morning snack by cutting it to 4 servings!  That would be 4 – 12 ounce smoothies at 119 calories each.

Hope you enjoy this simple and delicious smoothie!  If you are looking for something more substantial to start your day try my favorite Sun-dried Tomato and Scallion Egg White Omelet.

Enjoy!

With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

  1. It's just as hot here in California…didn't really feel like Christmas! But, I guess we can't complain too much. 😉 This smoothie sounds fantastic and would be sure to cool ya down!

  2. Looks great, Donna!
    I'm hoping this warm weather isn't an early spring. If it is, it could be a lloonngg summer!
    Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year's!

  3. Thanks for this post! I am into a healthier "me" this 2012. Start the morning right with this fruity smoothie…Yum! Thanks!

  4. Oh my goodness, this banana orange smoothie is so amazing! I want it now! Glad to do citrus-love with you!

  5. I looove smoothies!! I never tried it with oranges but I am sure it's more than delicious! I so have to make this!

  6. Donna – this is a great smoothie – very flavorful – but one note of caution – Trop50 is a huge scam being hoisted on us – advertised as 50% fewer calories, it is in reality only 50% orange juice and 50% water – but sold at the same price as 100% orange juice – save your money – make your own – tanx again for your great recipes…..bob

    5 fewer

  7. Really like your idea of 'new year'….time to eat healthier! I'm gonna try all of these; they look delish! Wishing you a happy healthy new year from norther Illinois where it is 3 below zero today bbrrrrr
