I just realized the granola I've been eating for the past 2 weeks has close to 500 calories a serving! Holy moly. And I don't even like it that much...it makes my belly hurt a bit, perhaps because its so heavy or maybe a result of the amount of sugar in it. It has raisins in it, fair enough, but also extra cane sugar. That's why I like to make my own granola at home, so I can control the sugar level, but I haven't perfected it quite yet. Oh how I miss the low fat granola @ the Berkeley Bowl.Anyway, I've been super into smoothies for a while and managed to get myself to abandon my date, almond, raw cocoa powder favorite for something new. This was really simple and delicious.
1/2 - 1 banana to your preferences
2 tbs dessicated coconut
1 cup frozen mango chunks
about 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk
Blend and serve. The coconut and soy provide some protein and help to fill you up. I like to serve mine in a wine glass to make it a little extra special.
