We're snowbound again, and so far it's been pleasant. SoJo is taking a loooooong nap (2+hours!) and I got a little sewing done since Mr. Geek had an day off due to the blizzard-like conditions outside.
Our neighborhood has gotten another foot of snow so far, with more to come by evening. It's gorgeous, and after having the luxury of watching Lost (absolute favorite show of all time) last night and getting to sleep in this morning, I'm in great spirits. I even made some delicious smoothies for breakfast. Yeah, that's the first thing that pops into your head when it's freezing outside, having an ice-cold smoothie. But, hey, you can use clean, freshly fallen snow in this recipe! Since we had all the ingredients on hand, which rarely happens when the mood strikes for a certain food, I decided to make them.
Banana-Oat-Peanut Butter Smoothies (with snow!)
~1 pint vanilla yogurt
~1 tbsp honey
~1 tbsp flax oil (optional--I add it for the extra health benefits)
~1-2 tbsp peanut butter
~1/2 cup uncooked oatmeal
~1/2 cup milk
~1 cup ice, or several cups of clean SNOW in our case (add it in until it's the consistency you want)
Break up the banana, and add it to the blender along with the other ingredients. Blend until smooth. Makes about four 8oz. servings.
