#lonelybfast #greensmoothie Sunday grab bag; finally used my Muscadine-Tomato gastrique

January 27th, 2013

It’s time to go to the grocery store. Since I don’t have time to go before breakfast, I’m just going to have to see what I have to make our green smoothie breakfast this morning.

Still have some kale. I also saved a little bit of red pepper from my dehydrated peppers yesterday. Have one sliver of a hot pepper left also.

We have a lot of kiwis that are ripening, and I just discovered yesterday that a less ripe Kiwi makes a nice peppery addition.

I also remembered an attempt this summer to make a Muscadine tomato gastrique. I took a container of muscadines, some fresh tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and reduced them together for quite a while. It was only okay, so I froze it until I could figure out what to do with it. I realized that might make a fine addition to a green smoothie.

So, this morning’s lonely breakfast, green smoothie is:

(Recipe for two)
4 cups kale
One frozen banana
Half of a fresh red pepper
One slice of hot pepper
Two medium kiwis
4 tablespoons flax meal
One scoop lecithin granules (for my hubby; I’m not really sure if this is important, but he bought ‘em so I’m using ‘em).
1 cup frozen Muscadine- tomato gastrique

This was a risky one, but it was really good. I give it a solid four stars. I don’t think the hubby liked the fact that the muscadine skins didn’t get well puréed, and you had to chew. That didn’t bother me; I simply thought it was healthy fiber.
