Blue-Cran-Berry Smoothie (Non-Dairy)


Today I had a wonderful day!  I headed to New York City to visit my cousin's wife (who is more like a sister and friend to me), Nandini, and her sweet, angelic, pretty, baby girl.  Knock on wood!  I worked from home earlier in the day and made some time to whip up two items for Nandini, this way she wouldn't have to worry about dinner... yeah, I can be sweet like that.  :-)  I decided to make Aloo Poha and Aloo Tamatar Gravy, let's just say, I had a pretty hectic morning. 


I made a little something for myself too. For breakfast today I had a blueberry cranberry smoothie.  I felt so good consuming all antioxidants in this drink.  So after all the cooking, working, a stroll, a train, and a cab ride away, I arrived at my destination.  I can't do this good deed for everyone, but I certainly "will" do it for the ones dear to me, just not everyday... hehe!  I get tired!  We ended our night putting the baby to sleep followed by dinner and wine on the balcony.  Sounds romantic, right?  It was so fun!



NUTRITION: Blueberries are a very good source of Vitamin C and Fiber.  They are a good source of Vitamin E. In addition, blueberries are an ANTIOXIDANT POWERHOUSE.  Cranberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C.
