Happy St. Patrick’s Day!! I felt that it was necessary to start my day off with something green in honor of today. A Green Monster in a Green Bowl and topped with Galaxy Vanilla Almond Granola (aka my new love…but I’ll get to that in a moment.). In to the blender went: 3 ice cubes, 1 frozen banana, 4 frozen strawberries, 1 handful of spinach, 1/2 cup Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt, 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk, 1 TBS chia seeds and 1 Scoop Amazing Grass Green Superfood.
Okay now… HOW HAVE I NEVER TRIED GALAXY GRANOLA?!?!?!?!?! I have seen it in a few blogs, and had to pick it up when I saw it at the natural food store. I am a granola girl through and through. I top everything with it, eat it straight and it is my staple for breakfast all summer long. My favorite in the summer is another variety of vanilla almond that I use to top yogurt and sweet summer berries, and I have to say the Galaxy version absolutely amazed me. It is made with applesauce instead of oil, and I only think that it inhances its flavor! I had to have a handful out of the bag after eating this, just for good measure! It is crunchy, naturally sweet and has hearty pieces of almonds in it. I love when granola holds it’s structure and the flakes/clusters are solid. Galaxy Granola is out of this world…pun intended. I might have to become a Fruit Not Fat (company name) granola convert.
Luck of the Irish to you,
