Topics have been a little heavy around Mommin’ It Up this week, so today I want to talk about something happy…
Green smoothies! Woo!
I came across green smoothies about a year ago, and while I loved them, I had a hard time figuring out the best way to make them fit into my lifestyle – I am always running out the door in the morning, and chopping fruits and vegetables doesn’t work well with that scenario. A few weeks ago, though, I decided to make packages of the ingredients and freeze them, and it’s worked out really well. I grab a couple of them out of the freezer every morning, run hot water over them, and blend them up. Voila, breakfast and lunch!
Green smoothie recipes are all over the internet, but my go-to site is IncredibleSmoothies.com . I like them best with just fruits and vegetables – no milk/yogurt/whatever. Dr. Oz also has one, but he and I aren’t on speaking terms after the $25 bottle of raspberry ketones he told me to buy didn’t melt fat off my body. Anyway, my very favorite is spinach, apple, pear, banana, and celery.
