smoothie lovin'.

Oh - breakfast.

There's no use debating the goodness of getting some healthy food in our bellies in the morning, but come on - knowing it's healthy doesn't make it any easier. There is just something super helpful about giving the baby some dry cereal, the big kids a granola bar, and yourself a second serving of coffee. But alas, their hungry bellies will betray them a few hours later and you'll have yourself a Class V meltdown in the middle of Barnes & Noble. I know from experience.

So, if you're looking for some good smoothie recipes and you're a newbie like me, here are some of my favorites. I'd just LOVE to hear yours too!

i call this the birthday smoothie. because I just ate it on my birthday.
{it's desserty and nutritious all at once}
1 banana
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tbsp chia seeds (or flax seeds)
1.5 tbsp almond/peanut butter
2 small pieces of dark chocolate
blend & enjoy

classic green monster
(healthy & appealing to your three year old son if you make it seem super-heroy)
1/2 banana
1 tbsp honey
1/2 cup of almond milk
1 tbsp almond/peanut butter
massive bunch of kale
2 tbsp chia seeds or flax seed
1/2 cup of blueberries

classic strawberry banana delight
6 or 7 strawberries
1/2 banana
1/2 cup of almond milk
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp flax seed
1/2 apple

(for all of these babies, you could substitute any & everything. especially milk - I prefer almond milk for allergy purposes but go for your fave)
