Hello all and welcome to Foodie Friday Link-ups! I am joined by Farrah from Fairyburger, Montana from Pretty Lil Mudder, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama! Today’s theme is the Smoothies!!
I have always loved smoothies! When I was in college I pretty much made one every morning in my dorm room! I was an RA my junior and senior year and my girls would hear my smoothie maker going in the mornings and come over for some! Hello easy breakfast to drink on the way to class!
This was similar to the one I had in college and grad school! It literally gave me a way to get lots of nutrition in my life! I know blenders/smoothie makes have come along way over the last 12 years!
So back to some smoothie recipes! I am a huge fan of ‘Green Smoothies!’ Until the last 2 years I never had heard of this concept, but I am SO glad I did! It makes me happy to know that I am adding extra nutrition and cutting the sugar I am drinking in my smoothies!
My basic recipe is:
2 cups greens (kale or spinach or both) + 1/2c – 3/4c liquid (coconut water or almond/coconut milk) + 2 – 3 fruits (a mix of fresh and frozen).
1. Blend greens and liquid
2. Add fresh fruit and blend
3. Add frozen fruit and blend
In April I did a smoothie challenge and did at least 1 smoothie a day! It was really fun to try new recipes and to change up my normal routine! Of the new ones I tried was spinach, coconut water, raspberries and frozen mango chunks! It was heavenly!
Basically get some yummy fruits and veggies in an easy drink! You can also add protein powder or nut butters for a nice post-workout recovery drink!
