smoothies and muffins on weekends

It becoming a bit of a ritual to make muffins on a weekend morning and while they bake, enjoy a tasty smoothie. It doesn't help that it's so rainy outside!

These beauties were a huge hit!

Blueberry Peach Smoothie
makes 2 large glasses

1/2 cup canned peaches (packed in water or fruit juice)
1 handful frozen blueberries
1 frozen banana
1 tbsp ground flax
skim milk to desired consistency

Blend until smooth!

The smoothies were inspired by these muffins. I was in a peachy mood today!

Strawberry Peach Muffins
makes 12

2 cups whole wheat flour (I use the pastry kind)
1 cup whole rolled oats
2 tbsp ground flax
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt (optional, I actually forgot it and didn't miss it!)

2 very ripe bananas, crushed with fork
3/4 cup skim milk
1/4 cup canola oil (I put a bit less in)
1 egg
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 cup chopped canned peaches (or use fresh!)
1/2 cup sliced strawberries (fresh or frozen)

Mix wet and dry together until batter is moist (don't over mix!). Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top and spaghetti noodle comes out clean.

Serve with a smoothie or glass of milk!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday!
