Sneaky Smoothies

                         I really like breakfast. Or maybe I just like food in general. Yeah that's probably it. I could easily go for a huge stack of waffles with a side of bacon every morning, but my body wouldn't like me if I did that very often. And I'm usually not that ambitious in the wee hours of the morning.
                          Lately I've been trying to add a little healthy to my smoothies. And, to my delight, they taste pretty good! Once you get past the green color, you can't even tell there's green in there. Now I feel like an official health nut. Here are a couple concoctions I blended up. These aren't really recipes, more like guidelines. Try different fruits you have on hand and switch up the proportions as needed- I'm thinking papaya and mango would be delicious!
                         Banana Blueberry Blast
                                  3/4 cup fresh blueberries
                                  2 frozen bananas
                                  2 large handfuls fresh spinach
                                  1/2 cup milk of your choice(I used almond milk)
                          Pineapple Cooler
                                  1 cup chopped fresh or canned pineapple
                                  1 frozen  banana
                                   2 handfuls fresh spinach or other greens(might not want to use mustard greens though...)
                                  1/2 cup milk of choice(coconut will make this like a pina colada!)
                            Makes about 2 servings(or 1 giant if your really hungry)

                            Blend until smoothe and enjoy!

                        Do you have and ways to sneak extra healthy into your meals? I'd love to hear about them!



  1. I make Kefir (fermented milk) smoothies each morning for the family. I add berries, 1/2 frozen banana, a little honey, a few drops of my YL tangerine essential oil, the kefir & the secret ingredient>>> 1 T. of flax seeds! Sometimes I add some spinach.

    1. Ooh, that sounds wonderful Miss Kim! Flax seed is so great for adding fiber and omega 3. How do you make your own kefir? I've had it from the store, but I bet homemade is even better!
