Hello my Dear Wonderful Readers!!

Happy Monday morning to all you wonderful people!! So I am still on my clean streak and this time I am back with a sweet, sour and super healthy smoothie.  “Summer” basically translates to – “time for cold and soothing breakfasts” During the cold months, I stay away from smoothies and therefore you will see how my waist line increases. But summer is when you wanna wear a nice  soft linen dress or cotton clothes right? I hate the idea of wearing denim during these hot months. I made the mistake of wearing jeans in Kerala!! OMG!! I had to peel it off my legs to get them off. LOL. A while ago I remember seeing this video of how girls/ women try to wear skinny jeans and how they look so pink and flustered at the end. So funny!! I am sure its there on YouTube. Another reason is, some mornings you just cannot get yourself to sit down and have a traditional breakfast right? After I have sent the husband to office and finished the baby boys morning chores I wish I had a nice tall glass of something cold and thats what makes smoothies just the best thing on earth. Like I have said before, smoothies are so versatile you could make any combination and it would taste remarkable!! and what’s more, they keep you full and happy till lunch time. Oh by the way you could totally do this for lunch too, but I like to sit down with my son on his chair by my side and we eat together. Separate plates, he playing with his food and me trying to teach him to eat on his own.

There are so many things you and me take for granted and so many things that you and me have to be thankful to our moms. Like how she thaught us to feed ourselves!! I mean the action of properly placing food into your mouth, without dropping a grain. Or how to hold a glass of water and place it back without spilling a drop. These are things we do every day, every time and have never stopped to think, how we developed these skills!

Ingredients :-

  1. Spinach – 200 gms ( washed and dried)
  2. Frozen Pineapple – 2 cups
  3. Kiwi – 2 ripe
  4. Coconut Water – 1 cup
  5. Amaranth Seeds – 1/2 cup ( optional)

Instructions:-

  1. Heat a pan on medium flame. Pour the Amaranth seeds into the hot pan and let them pop. They look like mini pop corn
  2. Set aside to cool
  3. In the bowl of your blender add the remaining ingredients and blend to a smooth consistency
  4. Pour into separate glass and top with the popped amaranth seeds
  5. Serve right away!!
