I just made my first smoothie like ever, lol, I put strawberries, half a banana, strawberry yogurt and some strawberry lemonade in it. Anya is loving it, so what do you put in yours? I want to try out different ones.

I buy bags of frozen fruit. So whatever I have, yogurt, and ice.

orange juice
vanilla frozen yogurt



#2
frozen strawberries
frozen watermelon cubes
passion fruit juice or pomegranite juice

I have some frozen fruit in my freezer, but our strawberries in our fridge were a few days old so I wanted to use them up before they went bad. I probably make another one tonight once hubby is home.

This. I tried the fresh fruit/ice thing and my blender works better with frozen fruit vs ice.



I like to buy those Jamba Juice ones to get an idea of what fruit to buy. You just add apple juice and it already has all the frozen fruit and yogurt.

not as good as a regular fruit smoothie, but they're not as bad as they look either. the fruit masks the taste of the veggies. if you want to ease into make your normal smoothie but add some organic baby spinach to it. if you like that then try adding spinach and kale, then add the cucumber. i use water to blend mine, because im dairy free. also, i use vanilla protien powder, one that has no sugar and stevia as the sweetener.

I know, he's 4 months already. He grew too fast. We're good, just planning the baptism so I'm all over trying to get ideas. How are you and Anya?

I do all kinds of healthy smoothies. I did a Kale/Apple Smoothie the other day & it was pretty delicious.
I added 3/4 cup milk ( I was out of almond milk) Buckwheat honey, Chia seeds a dash of vanilla and a tbsp. of peanut butter & Greek yogurt



I'll probably make one for breakfast tomorrow & I'll add spinach and use almond butter and almond milk and flax seeds. I will also use a frozen banana.

Time goes by so fast. Anya is almost 4 and I can't believe it. We are both doing good, want warm weather to get here already, she keeps talking about going to the beach. My parents just bought a vacation home in Delaware right on the water, and Anya loves playing there and its all she ever talks about. All I am currently hearing from her is mmmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm as she drinks her smoothie, lol
