Not your grandmother’s cereal and milk:
Souped up milk:
In the Vita-mix I blended:
- 3/4 a cup of milk
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese
- ~1/3 cup pumpkin
- 1 tbsp chias (which don’t get stuck in the Vita-mix like they did in my Cuisinart due to the open (and easy to clean!) base of the Vita-mix)
- Half a banana from yesterday ( which I store in the fridge and it doesn’t turn brown)
- 1/4 cup OATS
About 1/3 a cup of juice pulp! For the fiber, since most of the good nutrition was squeezed out. While it turned the mixture green, I could NOT taste any veggies. In fact, this bowl tasted like a thick dough! The cottage cheese + oats + banana gave it a great flavor. Couldn’t taste the pumpkin or veggies at all.
Topped with Cinnamon Mix My GranolaAnd served with my Kenyan spoon!
Some super strong chandelier coffee!
I gave the grounds a second whirl through the grinder to see if they were too coarse for yesterday. I did get more bloom today, but nothing like usual! I’ve been using the Fresh Market’s pre-ground mixes so I wonder if that’s the difference compared to these freshly ground beans. They say to use a coarse grind in a French press but I’ve found anything works! (Although if the grinds are too coarse the coffee is weak).
Hasta la Vista!
