Phuza Thursday: Something special

Thursday, May 26, 2011

Hello lovely people who like to read my blog everyday! I have a special surprise for you today, a guest post! Yay! But before we cross over to the very pretty mommy Haley from Life is Sweet, I though that I would give you some insider information to Phuza Thursdays. 

Did you know that it doesn't necessarily have to be an alcoholic drink? And that it can be anything from goat's milk to coconut juice? Blegh. That doesn't sound very nice. What does sound nice is this yummylicious recipe Haley is dishing up today!

Get your blenders ready! Go!
Hi there Second Floor Living readers!!

 Megan was so sweet to invite me to share with you a favourite drink of mine.
 I was inspired by this recipe...I love smoothies.
 They're a breakfast, an after workout snack, and a dessert! This one has healthy carbs, antioxydants, and some great protein too...
and and it tastes awesome.

Win-win :)

Very Berry Tropical Smoothie

2 cups frozen fruit...I used mangos, blueberries, & strawberries
1 cup coconut milk (I get the Silk can also use almond milk)
1 cup greek yogurt (Greek Gods honey flavor is A-MAZING)
Optional: sweeten with Truvia or Splenda

Toss fruit in blender, pour coconut milk and add yogurt on top...blend!! If it's too thick: add coconut milk (little additions). If it's too thin: add frozen fruit.


Then sip it with your sweetheart, or your girl friend.

What is it about sharing food with the people you love that makes it taste even better? :)

Thanks again for having me Megan!! Happy Thursday Eve everyone!

Now go check out sweet, sweet Haley's blog.

Happy Phuza Thursday.
Oh, and when drinking something stronger than smoothies, please don't drive. Ever.

They usually come in tins. In the baking goods aisle. I've seen them there I think.

Love smoothies for breakfast - they're light enough to not make you feel stuffed, but also give you that nice boost of energy before the start of the day.

When I went home in April (to California) I also noticed that silk coconut milk in my parents fridge - I think it's a new non-fat non-lactose option that's supposed to be healthier than soy. If you buy the canned coconut milk here, make sure to go for the light version - the normal one will make your smoothie more of a dessert than anything else!
