Clementine Banana Bliss

So....yeah, it's been a long time since I've been here. I'm back now though!

I've been doing Weight Watcher since the beginning of the year and am really working on eating more healthy foods. Most fruits and veggies on WW are 0 PointsPlus. I love the PointsPlus program because it helps you make wise food choices, like eating more fruits and veggies to keep you from being hungry. Since fruits are "free", I've been playing around with different combos and ways to eat them.

This combo is the bomb! I had a whole box of clementines that I wanted to make sure got eaten before they went bad. I can only eat so many of them before I get tired of them. My mind wandered off to an Orange Julius. Not wanting to use anything but fruit, I came up with this "recipe".

Peel three clementines.

Separate them into sections and place them on a plate. Place in the freezer and freeze.

When they're frozen solid, you can put them in a plastic baggie so it will take up less space in your freezer. 

Place the sections into a food processor. Blend until you get a powdery substance like this.

Add 1/2 C. cold water and continue to blend. You'll have kind of an Icee texture now.

Add in one banana and continue to blend. Now, you will have a smoothie texture.  

It's amazing how good and refreshing this is! I hope you enjoy it like I have been!
