Cherry Almond smoothieHappy Valentine’s Day!

There has been lots of Valentine’s Day candy laying around my kitchen the last few days and it keeps finding it’s way in my mouth.  Caramels, M and M’s, chocolate hearts…it’s just not good. Actually, it’s tastes very good but you know exactly what I mean.

Instead of a sweets recipe today, I need something healthy. This smoothie is perfect to make for your Valentine. Since I will be indulging in homemade shrimp ravioli and beef tenderloin for dinner, I think a nice light breakfast is in order.  This cherry almond smoothie is what I want.

Cherries and almond milk are a perfect combination. I added a banana for sweetness and some red spinach for more nutrition. You can use green spinach if you cant find red. But it is valentines day and when I saw a bag of red spinach at Trader Joe’s I just couldn’t pass it up. It has a bit of a strong earthier taste so you don’t want to use too much.

Try this healthy vegan smoothie. It’s a great way to start your day.

Doing anything special for Valentine’s Day?

I just got the apron in the mail today – EEK! I love it! When my daughter read the label and said “who is Lisa Grant” I yelled “Jersey Girl Cooks!”

You are so sweet to think of me. It’s been a surreal couple months, but I know I have to keep moving forward, as difficult as it is. So I really appreciate it!

Hugs!
