Chocolate Blueberry Smoothie is just what the doctor ordered. Get a gluten-free boost of flavor to sooth away any type of blues. (Gluten-free, Vegetarian, Vegan)
Saying that I’m becoming stir crazy in this house would be an understatement. In 12 days post surgery and I have been out of the house twice. Once to see a movie and yesterday for my post opp appointment. I am now halfway through season 5 of FRIENDS.
Man, I forgot how much I loved this show. When sitting around the house my I. Just. Want. To. Eat. Everything. goes into high gear. Along with my nut butter cravings. Going through 4 bags of pistachios, a jar of peanut butter AND a large jar of almond butter in just 12 days. This girl is not afraid of fat if you can’t tell. Still can’t believe I ate that much though in only a week.
This gem of a smoothie was created a week before surgery week to curb my chocolate craving one morning. Yeah, you read that right, I was craving chocolate in the morning. Very rough start to the day. However, this smoothie swept me off my feet into a chocolate dream.
Before my surgery I dealt with a flare up and was so not feeling good about going into surgery in less than 2 weeks while working on subduing a flare. I was pretty sure I’d have another flare recovering from the surgery.
I kept a very strict food plan with nutritionally dense food including healthy fats.
After the holidays though it was almost impossible to ignore the sugar cravings. My body was going into total detox mode and I just needed to get my body and sugar levels back on track. That’s when this chocolate smoothie baby came along.
It also was when I really realized I need to buy a new blender. Like real bad. The troubles of a foodie, never know what I should buy next for kitchen equipment. The list is endless.
Short and sweet today. Typing with one hand takes alot of time. I’m gonna get faster eventually. Make this smoothie tomorrow morning, you won’t regret it. 🙂
