Today I was cleaning out my fridge and saw some old grapefruits that were about past their prime. I didn't want to eat them and was about to throw them out, when I decided to experiment. The result?
A delicious grapefruit smoothie!
I simply peeled and cut up the grapefruit, threw it in the blender with some apple juice, strawberry yogurt, and frozen strawberries, added a little ice, and ta-da! Yumminess. I, of course, had to add a little whipped cream on top. 🙂
Today's tip? If you are considering throwing out some over-ripe or bruised fruit or veggies, try to make them into a smoothie! You can even throw a handfull of spinach or other veggies in a smoothie. It makes it ultra healthy, and gets rid of veggies that are about to go bad.
If you go to websites like THIS it gives lots of yummy smoothie recipe ideas!
And there you have it!
Happy savings to you…enjoy!
