Super Smoothie

I love having my smoothie in the morning. I make one that is good for me, and delicious. First I add my oats, (about 1/2 cup) to a bowl with just enough boiling water to cover the oaks. This allows the water to soak into the oats. In the meantime. I gather my other ingredients. One whole banana, One cup of strawberries. Fage Greek yogurt, skim milk, and Ball jars.

I use the Fage plain, 0 percent. I use half of the container. Combine all the ingredients into the blender. Blend them all together until it is smooth. I promise…it is so delicious!

I use frozen fruit, put that in the blender fist, and then the banana, oats, yogurt, and the skim milk over the strawberries. Make sure you put the lid on the blender, and liquify!

Pour some for today, and some for later. I like to have enough for either the next day or a snack. ImageImage

Avila Valley Barn

Last week we were craving some fresh apples. The grocery store apples are just so, how do I say…sucky! I can’t even eat them!

My husband found out about a great place to buy fresh fruit. The drive is lovely going to Avila Valley Barn, and the parking lot was full. There are farm animals from horses, chickens, llama’s, and goats. I am pretty sure there were a couple of milking cows. Hay rides for people to enjoy, and Santa and Mrs. Claus were there too.

My husband had to buy a couple of pies, and we purchased fresh fruit. We will be retuning soon to Avila Valley Barn. Here is a photo I took of the windmill.
