Esta es mi merienda hace ya un par de semanas, y me encanta! le he encontrado varias ventajas: primero, me evita comer galletitas, torta y cosas por el estilo en la tarde, de manera habitual. En segundo lugar, me como una manzana si o si todos los días, y en tercer lugar como un poco de avena todos los días... en fin, creo que está genial y me parece delicioso! y la satisfacción y sensación de bienestar y llena, dura mucho mucho rato.

This is my afternoon's snack (thanks to VictoryGirl for helping me, I used a wrong word for snack) it makes me happy, cause, first of all, it helps me avoiding things like sweet cookies, cakes and stuff, on regular basis... second place, it makes me eat an apple yes or yes everyday, and a bit of oats... I love it!!! it's EASY and fast to make, and it makes you feel full quite a lot of time, can't ask for more :D


Mi receta es:
para 1 persona

- 1 manzana roja limpia
- 1 taza de agua tibia, poner en licuadora
- Agregar 2 cucharadas de avena y dejar remojar unos minutos
- Agregar en trozos la manzana
- Agregar miel a gusto (o el endulzante que uses, aunque la miel le da un toque especial)

Licuar bien, y servir!!! Al tener, en mi caso, el agua tibia, y la manzana fria, queda a una temperatura ambiente agradable para invierno :)


My own recipe is:
1 serving

- 1 red apple, cleaned
- 1 cup of warm water, into the blender
- Add 2 tablespoons of oats into the blender and let it soak for some minutes
- Cut into pieces and add the apple to the blender
- Add honey to your taste (or the sweetener you like, though honey gives this special touch...)

Blend it very well, and enjoy!!! I use the warm water so oats get more soft, and with the cold apple, all mixes up in something at a kind of room temperature, nice for winter :)

  4. This looks very delicious. Is "snack" the word you are looking for?

  5. thank you VictoryGirl! I knew you'd help me :)
    I thought about "snack"... isn't it snack for little things in the middle of big meals? I thought this smoothie is not really as little as snack... would be something like "afternoon tea" + something to eat

    I'd say like a breakfast... but american breakfast is far far bigger than our popular breakfast :)

    Anyway, snack is the greatest word to put there :D thank you!
    I realized we have a particular word for that (merienda) and it has no translation to english...
