Todays post is dedicated to smoothies! In a effort to get more veggies and fruit in my day I have started having a smoothie for my lunch. Its been quite effective. I mix veggies in so I get at least one serving of veggies. You cant taste them at all!! Its been good to get Kianna her veggies to because she hates veggies except for peas. I make my smoothie then whatever is left in the blender I mix half with water and put it in a sippy with a straw. That way its runny but she gets her veggies and fruit. Here is my favorite mixes so far. . . . .
I hate avocado but i couldnt taste it at all in this! Avocado is a excellent vitamin filled veggie!!
This makes 2 glasses
1 Cup frozen strawberries
1 Avocado chunked
3/4 cup juice (i use mango orange but any will do)
Combine all items in the blender. Add more water or juice if its too thick for you yet.
This one is yummy! The cottage cheese adds protein and it makes it taste kinda like cream cheese. So it was a berry cheesecake!
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 cup blueberries
3/4 cup juice
handful spinach leaves
Mix all together in blender. Add more juice or water until its the right consistency for you.
