smoothies.


The boys love smoothies with breakfast, and so we blend up something yummy at least a few times a week.


We first juice up a few veggies. Today we juiced 2 carrots and 2 stalks of celery.



Then to the blender we add fresh and frozen fruit, yogurt, and the fresh juice...plus any extra goodies.


Both of the boys love making smoothies - I just help chop and operate the blender!

Here is our smoothie of the day.

ingredients::

juicer:
Juice of 2 carrots and 2 stalks of celery
blender:
1 banana
1 cup fresh organic yogurt
1 cup frozen peaches
1/2 cup frozen blueberries

Juice the veggies. Into a blender add the banana, yogurt, frozen fruit, and fresh juice. Add any extras (we added cod liver oil and probiotics). Blend until smooth. Add a little more liquid (juice or yogurt) if it is too thick.

The tasty combinations of fruits and veggies are endless! Just experiment a bit to find your favorites.

I want to drink that picture. Never made smoothies, love to drink them and have the equipment (juicer, blender). I'll have to start experimenting.
