The day after we obtained again to Raleigh final week, I awoke with tonsils so swollen, I may barely swallow water, a continuous hacking cough and I seemed like Huge Ang once I tried to speak. (Sure, I understand that precisely two of you get the Huge 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 might solely imply one factor:
I should have consumption.
So since I’ve consumption and all, this weekend appeared like alternative to revisit this Raspberry Banana Chia Smoothie recipe. I began engaged on it a couple of month and a half in the past. You’d assume a smoothie recipe could be fairly straight-forward, however for some purpose it took me lots of tries to get this one proper. Seeing as my tonsils are concerning the measurement of golf balls proper now, I wished it to be a bit bit thinner than I normally make my smoothies, so I made a decision so as to add fewer raspberries this time round. I believe that was the important thing to lastly (FINALLY!) nailing this recipe—fewer raspberries meant the smoothie wasn’t so tart. In truth, I didn’t even add any sweetener to mine, though you could need to style yours and add a bit if wanted.
