I've started making breakfast smoothies for the kids again. They've been gobbling them up and I feel good knowing that they're filled with all things good-- fruit, veggies & protein. And the best part? The leftovers become popsicles!
So easy and nutritious too-- especially with a handful of spinach thrown in. The kids have no idea since the blueberries mask the telltale green.
I don't have a "set" recipe, but I do try to include 3 kinds of fruit (at least 2 should be frozen), 1 vegetable and 1 or 2 proteins.
handful fresh/frozen blueberries
handful fresh/frozen strawberries
handful fresh/frozen peaches
handful frozen mango
handful apple chunks
1 handful of spinach (use blueberries to mask green)
1 handful shredded carrots (good with mango)
1 handful chopped zucchini (if unskinned, use blueberries to mask green)
1-2 scoop of vanilla protein powder with 5 oz water, juice or milk
vanilla to taste
honey to taste
these 70's tupperware popsicle molds bring back good childhood memories!
This particular batch has the following goodies:
1 cup yogurt
1.5 cups fresh spinach
1.5 cups frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen mango
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 frozen banana
1 cup milk
1 scoop of protein powder
And when the kids start bothering me for candy and cookies, what do you think they get?
they think they're getting away with murder!
