Weekend Experiments

by Lisa on February 21, 2010

Yesterday, I made a smoothie that was similar to the Valentine’s Day smoothie, except I didn’t measure the ingredients, left out the hemp protein powder and cacao, and added about 2 cups of spinach.  I thought it would turn brown…but it didn’t.  It was awesome, didn’t taste the spinach at all, and it was a good end cap to smoothie week.

My experiment for this morning was Chia Superfood Pudding.

To the blender, I added:

2 cups almond milk
2 Tbsp yacon powder
2 Tbsp lucuma powder
2 Tbsp hemp protein powder
1 Tbsp Maca powder
2 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup chia seeds
stevia to taste

During blending, this immediately thickened.  I think I used too much chia, and the leftovers in the fridge may be cement-like when I go back to it later….but the small amount I ate was really good.  I added frozen raspberries to it, and the pudding itself was the texture of almond butter but just a little creamier.  It’s definitely one of those things you don’t need to eat a lot of to get full.

Unfortunately, after I ate it, I decided to do a headstand.  Considering that, and the wheatgrass shot I had about 20 minutes before the pudding…I’m not sure which thing made me nauseous.  I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the pudding!

For lunch, hummus and veggies—maybe I’ll post that too since I’m really busy procrastinating today.

    being busy procrastinating is the best kind of procrastination! you can kind of feel good about it because you’re doing something… even though it’s might be not what you’re supposed to do… it’s not just sitting around doing nothing!
