Does anyone remember clear back to September when Bossy didn’t know what a vivanno was, and she held smoothies in the same esteem reserved for things like toe hairs, and she recognized ice cubes as those items she fished out of her nightly gin and tonic?
No, Bossy doesn’t remember either.
Anyway. Bossy is on a budget—which she will tell you all about
when hell freezes over in a day or two when she launches her new blog design—but in the meantime: Bossy learned how to approximate the Orange Mango Banana Vivanno at home, using a blender with one hundred speeds, all of them
Shall we begin?
First Bossy drops a whole banana into her blender and adds some orange juice and 1% milk:
Then Bossy ads a few heaping tablespoons of nonfat plain yogurt:
Now it’s time for a sprinkling of flax seed:
And a shake or two of wheat germ:
That’s a drum roll you hear, because now it’s time for a spoonful of Bossy’s
very secret, very proprietary fiber:
Next Bossy adds a cup or two of frozen mango chunks and a cup of ice cubes:
Then you blend, although Bossy likes to leave her ice cubes partially chunky. Pour into a tall glass with a straw and serve!
For a month, Bossy has been drinking these healthy, low-fat shakes in the place of dessert! And occasionally Bossy has even enjoyed one of these shakes in the place of a meal!
And the low-fat result?
Bossy hasn’t weighed this much since she delivered her second baby.
