My baby girl and I have been enjoying fruit smoothies for breakfast in the morning. When I say smoothie I really mean HEALTHY smoothie. Not all smoothies are that healthy! I used to think I was making healthy ones because I used low fat non fat ICE CREAM and apple juice! YIKES! Now I REALLY make HEALTHY ones.
This mornings smoothie was
10 blue berries
a hand full of spinach leaves
about 3 or 4 baby carrots.
Sounds really weird right? Carrots and spinach throwing you off? Let me tell you, they cut out all of the sweetness of the fruit. I added a little bit of water too. Sometimes I add flax seed. If I add flax seed I try and drink it all. The flax seed blows up if you freeze it and then defrost it. :) Sometimes I also add low fat plain yogurt.
Sometimes I also add bananas, oranges, peaches and apples. I HEARD broccoli doesn't leave a taste in the smoothie either but I haven't tried it yet. I SWEAR to you you can NOT taste the carrot or the spinach. Try it.
My daughter LOVES sharing these with me. She says, "I want fruit momma!"
This is right after she enjoyed the one from this morning. Can't argue with that face! Enjoy
