The vast majority of the mail I receive from my mail carrier ends up in my recycle bin. But the other day Dry Bean Quarterly showed up and it put me in the best mood. Apparently there is a Bean Institute! Look here I knew there was an Almond Board, but did not know about the bean people. Good thing they exist. Beans are good for you and I highly recommend you feed them to your family. Inside the newsletter there was a smoothie recipe that caught my eye and I plan to make it. You should too. Try it and let me know your thoughts. Here you go…
BERRY BEAN SMOOTHIE:
1 cup orange juice (You know I am NOT a fan of juice, but this is for 8 servings so it’s minimal) 2 cups quartered strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 – 8 ounce can crushed pineapple
3 Tbsp honey
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract 6-8 ice cubes.
2.) Once whirled together, add the ice cubes and blend until smooth
3.) Serve in a glass to your kids.
