The day after we acquired again to Raleigh final week, I awakened with tonsils so swollen, I may barely swallow water, a continuous hacking cough and I appeared like Large Ang once I tried to speak. (Sure, I notice that precisely two of you get the Large Ang reference, however I’m okay with that.) I instantly picked up my iPhone and Googled to search out out the signs of SARS and I used to be relieved to search out out that I didn’t appear to have SARS. However then I spotted that would solely imply one factor:
I should have consumption.
So since I’ve consumption and all, this weekend appeared like an excellent alternative to revisit this Raspberry Banana Chia Smoothie recipe. I began engaged on it a few month and a half in the past. You’d suppose a smoothie recipe could be fairly straight-forward, however for some motive it took me a number of tries to get this one proper. Seeing as my tonsils are concerning the dimension of golf balls proper now, I needed it to be somewhat bit thinner than I normally make my smoothies, so I made a decision so as to add fewer raspberries this time round. I feel that was the important thing to lastly (FINALLY!) nailing this recipe—fewer raspberries meant the smoothie wasn’t so tart. In reality, I didn’t even add any sweetener to mine, though you could need to style yours and add somewhat if wanted.
