Lately, I have an odd habit, that is snacking small bowl of easy light smoothie, eating in small portion turn out quite fun, even though I need an extra effort to cook small meal, in every meal time. I am not wishing this habit is seasonal, since I am easily getting bored, eating in small portion also more healthier in my opinion, since it will preventing snacking on unhealthy stuff.
I love to play with smoothie, putting on ingredient that uncommon to mix, at least for me. Also I love to play with leftover or something too small to be enjoy by itself, this morning I have half mango leftover from my son, half of lime from my soup and my always there freeze banana, so I just put them together and topping it with mix nut and dried fruit from my hubby stock hehe. What make this smoothie in edge is I also put some roasted grind hazelnut and peanut, as a result the smoothie was quite nutty and fruity in the same time.
Here some for you, maybe this could be an idea.
LIME HAZELNUT MANGO SMOOTHIE (SNACKING IN BETWEEN MEALS)
SERVE 1 small bowl
- Half mango
- 1/2 cup of almond milk
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 tbs grind of roasted hazelnut and peanut (or you can put whole roasted nut, choose your favourite)
- Juice from 1/2 of lime

Blend them together until smooth and thick, then put your favourite topping. It is quite easy, the hardest part is washing the blender *sigh.
