7am – Make an amazing green smoothie with spinach, mango, pineapple, strawberries, carrot juice and flax. I made a large batch so I could have some later in the day as well.
12pm – Finished spin class. Feeling kind of hungry…might as well finish up that green smoothie.
“What the heck!? It’s congealed!!” …oh right, I put a ton of flax in there. For all of my vegan bakers out there, you know that ground flax mixed with water = flax egg. A smoothie with the texture of an egg…not cool.
So I learned something today. No flax in the smoothie until I’m about to drink it! Or else it turns to pudding haha. I know there are a lot of people who make overnight oats with chia seeds and WANT that gel texture but I’m weird when it comes to texture and this one was NOT doing it for me.
I’m SUPER mildly excited for tomorrow’s green smoothie. I am going to spinning tomorrow morning, so I prepped all of the fruit and veggies tonight to make it easier. I even decided to buy some bananas and freeze them in chunks to see if I can tolerate that in a smoothie. (Cross your fingers for me!)
