Plumtastic Fat Cat

n 001 It’s 8:00 A.M. and I have a few minutes before I need to leave the house,  so without much thought I grabbed 3 plums, some spinach and threw them in the blender.  I then  realized I hadn’t consumed any fats in the past couple of days so I tossed in half an avocado, hence the “fat cat” part of the title.  After adding ice, water and a tsp of stevia, I was in dork smoothie heaven.  I loved this so much that I’ve made it for three consecutive days.
