So after getting this horrible evil illness known as Strep Throat, I tried a number of things to help the pain. What ended up helping the most were really cold things like popsicles and smoothies.
So today I ended up making a smoothie made out of the following:
1 cup of mixed frozen fruit (strawberries, mango, peaches)
1 cup of frozen strawberries
1 cup fresh spinach
1 cup of rice milk
1 cup of vanilla yogurt (Tillamook)
2 T flax seed meal
a packet of Emergen-C
2 capsules of Omega complex (squeezed the oil out, didn't put the gelatin capsule in)
The result was a greenish, creamy, frozen concoction that my 4 year old promptly dubbed "The Alien Smoothie"
It tasted absolutely amazing!! And felt great on my throat.
