I am really into smoothies right now. Or, I’m getting into smoothies right now.
I am very, very excited about this and I hope you are too, because you will most definitely see me blogging about it more as I learn new yummy recipes (that I create, obviously, because I am a master chef) as a way to get more nutrients in my life!
I think smoothies are the perfect way to get in fresh foods, like fruits and vegetables, that contains tons of vitamins in nutrients without having to eat them. You know? I sure as heck am not going to eat spinach or broccoli, but if I can sneak it in a smoothie without tasting it, then we have a grand prize winner.
Tonight I made a simple one with a few things that I already had on hand. It was super delicious.
1 cup whole milk (that’s what that white stuff is on the top of my smoothie in above pic.)
1 cup mixed frozen berries (blueberries, blackberries and raspberries)
Mm. Mmm. Mmmmm.
Lucas loved it too. I’m (also) excited for smoothies as they’ll be a great way for Lucas to get in vegetables. So sneaky! He thought his smoothie was the best dessert ever- and I felt like such a good mom for letting him have a “dessert” with healthy goods.
He got in BIG trouble because he poured out my beautifully made smoothie all over the table and made a HUGE mess. I, of course, started taking pictures. Probably bad parenting moment, disciplining a toddler while also taking pictures- ha. My husband said I was encouraging his behavior, but come on.
