Beige Smoothie

10 Apr

Pardon the name of this smoothie, if you will.  I can’t go by the general tenet of naming a smoothie by its main ingredients, because it would be even worse – or at the least, it would be too long.  Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Smoothie?  I think not.  So we’ll go with Beige Smoothie instead and hope that you try it anyway.  Because this smoothie deserves at least a weekly appearance in your mornings.  It’s creamy.  It’s peanut buttery.  The vanilla adds great flavor without sugar.  The oatmeal lends a little nice texture.

Am I weird about this, by the way?  That I like my smoothies to have a little texture, not be completely smooth?  I suppose it’s because if I have something to chew while I’m drinking my smoothie, I feel more full.  Mind games.  They’re not just to play on other people.
