I have been talking about doing shakes and smoothies in the morning for a long time, but this weekend I finally had time to get the blender out, find it a home on the counter and GET STARTED!
I have been using whatever we have in the house because I have a stockpile of frozen fruit that I saved as it was going bad. But after just one week of this, I have blown through most of it already. It's time to plan my breakfasts so that I can have the necessary produce and ingredients on hand.
P.S. Smoothies are also a hit with my kiddos. Even the baby (not such a baby anymore) likes some yummy fruit blends to go with his breakfast :) I am making super huge batches and still running short when it comes to filling my glass, because, you know, mom always gets what's left. It's easier than hearing everyone else complain ;) If I plan better, maybe I will get a whole smoothie.
Bananas are the cornerstone of my smoothies. It's just not the same without it.
I will probably add a banana...
I was going to pick out a few of these that sounded good to recommend to you, but I think just pointing you over to their websites is the best and easiest way for you to see the variety that they have listed. I am Particularly excited by the Black and Blue, Coconut Kale and Pina Colada. There is also a whole bunch of dairy free, which is awesome! The Sunrise is right up my ally :)
Also, I am always down for a simple Strawberry Banana Smoothie, heavy on the ice. But other people like a variety... and I am now putting It Works! Greens in with my smoothies. It has been approved by my OB (no surprise, it's all natural!) for me and baby so in it goes!
I had stopped all supplements until I could speak with my doctor and my morning sickness went from 0 - 60 in about two days. I am so happy he thinks that it sounds like a great addition to my diet and I have already noticed that the nausea is much more manageable. Hallelujah!
Greens are great in addition to or in lieu of spinach and kale in your drink. I like to do both. Can't hurt, right?
Happy smoothie making everyone!
