Blueberry Cheesecake Smoothie
My boys seem to be catching on to the healthy choices. Tonight they were begging for a smoothie. I used the new Magic Bullet Single Shot that Christian gave me for Christmas. It's awesome! Christian wanted a Strawberry Cheese Cake and Alexander wanted Blueberry Cheese Cake Smoothie. Both were delicious... so delicious that I had to make a blueberry one for myself. :)
I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.
It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.
