Happy Valentine’s Day! Today, we are supposed to be focusing on love and all things heart related. To me, this means add flax seed! Romantic, huh?
I am taking a quick break from the Road Trip Series this week and wanted to bring you a new smoothie recipe. It can be easy to get in a smoothie rut, always using the same ingredients and coming up with the same results. This heart-y (get it?) smoothie is super heart healthy and tastes as good as it looks. Because it uses juice concentrate, it is a little extra sweet and should be considered a special treat instead of a daily staple.
- 1/3 cup grape juice concentrate
- 1/3 cup cranberry juice concentrate
- 2 cups strawberries
- 2 scoops protein powder (I like Jay Robb’s Egg White)
- 3 T. ground flaxseed
- 1-2 cups water
Begin with one cup of water, blend and add more for desired consistency. This should make 3-4 smoothies!
Something really strange happens every time my husband and I take a picture together. Our love just radiates. See?
Once again, Happy Heart Day! Cherish those around you and be sure to send a warm message to those who are not. Today would be a great day to send a thank you note to a member our of military. Go to a millionthanks.org to learn how.
