It’s Tuesday – which means we made it through the first day of the week!
I went to Sainsbury’s on Friday night to pick up my favourite Weight Watchers pizza but left with a whole host more.
One of those was Doves Farm xanthan gum.
I posted on Saturday how luscious and creamy it made my green smoothie but holy crap it deserves its very own post because this stuff is just that good. I had read about it on HEAB and she RAVED about it. I had backtracked through her links and read Smoothie Girl’s take on them and knew I had to try it.
This is just a cup of skimmed milk, 4 ice cubes, a handful of spinach and a banana. Blitzed with about 1/10th of a teaspoon of xanthan gum it somehow increases in volume and thickness and becomes the consistency of a super milkshake. It made my typical morning drink so delicious that I ended up having a second one after dinner just because it was so creamy and tasty.
Words are not even doing it justice, but in the words of the Fitnessista herself – FOODGASM!
I absolutely urge you to try it and if you do, let me know!
I picked up another food blogger inspired product on Friday that I’ll feature as soon as I figure out what to do with it!
