8 Healthy Smoothies Made With 3 Ingredients
A lot of people like smoothies. But few people make them at home. Because think of all the measuring, the effort, the mess. It doesn’t have to be that way. Pick a few of these recipes, hit the grocery store, then make “smoothie packs” for the whole week by placing measured-out ingredients for each smoothie in a plastic bag. When you need to be refreshed, pull a bag out of the freezer, dump its contents in a blender, and YAY. The below recipes are perfect because they only have three ingredients each and they use frozen fruits and veggies so you can skip the ice.

How to: Place ½ cup frozen kale, ½ cup frozen pineapple, ½ cup plain kefir or pourable plain yogurt, and ¼ cup water into a blender.

I have to be in a relationship in which the other person can’t live without me, can’t function without my being right there by its side, adjusting the temperature, stirring constantly, for the entire 20 minutes, 15 for chewy. Oh yeah, we’re talking about oats. (Relationships are for that other blog.) But I just realized that while it sure makes me feel good to go out of my way, to take more time than necessary, to be inconvenienced out of love, to be needed, there are times, very rare, but there are times, when “being needed” is ever so teeny tiny bit donttakethiswrongway…annoying.
