2 ingredient smoothie and book update

27 Jan

When I was a kid, I hated anything bitter. Grapefruit was the breakfast antithesis of all that is good in my chubby little world- sugar coated crunchies and custard filled donuts. Now as an adult my palette has changed quite a bit and bitter foods, like tahini and grapefruit, have come to hold a special place in my heart.

This simple, two ingredient smoothie has become a breakfast mainstay and I have to say, it’s truly awesome, even if reveling in the flavor of grapefruit makes me feel like like I’m getting on in years. Meh. Grapefruit’s good for the health, no? The late, great Jack LaLanne would certainly approve.

Kris’ Awesome Anti-Aging, OMG-I-AM-Aging 2 Ingredient Breakfast Smoothie

1 red grapefruit
1/2 a ripe banana, frozen

Segment the grapefruit, being mindful not to put your eye out. Place grapefruit and any additional juice from fruit rinds into a blender. Add the banana, chopped into chunks. Process until smooth. Add sweetener if desired, but know it will debit points from your geriatric street cred. πŸ˜‰

And now, in other news…

The final touches have been made on the manuscript and it is off to the printers! My upcoming book Have Your Cake and Vegan Too is available for presale on Amazon! It features 50 vegan cake recipes, including some yummy gluten-free options and FULL COLOR PHOTOS! As fun as it is to presale books you’re anticipating, don’t forget that super cool vegan owned stores like Cosmos Vegan Shoppe will be carrying the book once it’s released. Our target release date is April 1st, no joke.

I have been working on a lot of really cool new things for nom! nom! nom! blog. The site is undergoing a complete redesign that will make it much more dynamic. In addition, the content and the ways I share said content will be changing. nom! nom! nom! will be growing from a blog to a very full and robust site. It’s still a couple of weeks out until the new site is up, but know that a change is comin’- and it’s going to be rad!

    Oh my goodness, this is all happening so quickly! That cover looks amazing – who knows what secrets it holds. Congratulations oh and nice smoothie too! I see you’ve got your own grapefruit spoon ready. Those are the best.

      Thanks! Yes, a grapefruit spoon is essential for successful grapefruit destruction!

      Almost! It’s technically scheduled for April, but I have a feeling it will probably ship in mid-March- our babies will be delivered around the same time! πŸ˜‰

    Pshaw! I’ve loved grapefruit ever since I was a kid… I take offense at the geriatric comments! πŸ˜›

    Congrats on the book! That’s super exciting. πŸ™‚

    • Kris January 28, 2011 at 10:39 pm #

      Aw, don’t take offense! I’m just kidding, when I think of grapefruit I always think of my grandpa because he ate them all of the time.

    Awesome! I’m marking my calendar!

      Also, I really appreciate this smoothie recipe. It looks so refreshing! I have a grapefruit tree (doesn’t everyone in Florida?) and I can never find enough stuff to do with those things!!

    Ooo, that smoothie sounds so delicious! I love grapefruit…my favourite fruit of all time. I must have been old right from the start because I used to eat lemons like oranges when I was younger. I still love them although I’m not quite that hardcore anymore!

    That’s it. I need to go buy some grapefruit.
    Love your blog!!
