Anything Interesting Happen?

Today was another super busy day for me – loads of ‘life’ to get through. I was feeling good until about 5pm and then needed a pick me up. I made a super delish cacao smoothie  (dates, almond milk, frozen banana, pear) I really did get a big energy burst from it and powered through an extra few hours work before meeting my mates for dinner.

Tonight I’m heading out to a party. Any evening I’ve tried to go out I’ve found that I’m SUPER tired and struggle to stay up late. Right now it’s 11:55pm –  I’m yawning every few minutes and feel like I need toothpicks to keep my eyes open. It will be interesting to see how long I last…

Great! Insanely tired now but I felt pretty great all day.

Recipes And Facts

The first time I froze banana to use in my smoothies I made the rookie mistake of freezing them whole, with the skin on. But it’s a biatch to try and peel them frozen! :-) The best way I have found is to wait until they are nice and ripe, peel them and cut them up into 1 inch chunks. I then put them into the freezer in a plastic container and just use as much as I need.

Here is a wee tutorial on how to prep and freeze your bananas for smoothies!
