another food post?


I know, 2 in 1 week, what's going on here?! I was up late last night talking and she mentioned that she gives her daughter green smoothies. This isn't the first time a friend has mentioned these and since I've been wanting to get Israel off of so much dairy milk anyways, I thought I'd give it a go. You know what? They're pretty good too!

I'd like to call this my Mad Scientist Smoothie because I dumped a little bit of almost everything in my blender. Here's what I did.
Fill the blender with 1 1/2 cps water & 1/2 cp almond milk.
Add a handful of fresh or frozen spinach and puree before adding the rest.
I poured in some agave nectar
frozen organic blueberries
strawberries
mango
blackberries
raspberries
flax seed
organic yogurt
organic coconut oil
half an avocado and a banana.

Did you get that? Extensive isn't it. It doesn't have to be but I thought the more the merrier. Next time I might try adding another vegetable or freeze the yogurt first but we love it. Unfortunately though, I gave it to Israel before bed and he didn't sleep more than 50 minutes, which is not like him at all! Shoot.
Maybe just for a snack?

  1. My daughter wakes up pretty early every morning and asks for breakfast right away. Poor thing has to practically drag me out of bed! I started blending frozen fruit, yogurt and a dash of almond milk a couple weeks ago and we've been doing it every morning since. Now she asks for "Yolg-yo!" in her cute little voice. It's quick, easy and can be as protein-rich and nutritious as you want. Plus, if you like creamy drinks like milkshakes, it kinda feels like a treat (even though it's healthy)!

  2. My favorite smoothie is raspberries, banana, Greek yogurt & soymilk.
    Yours sounds adventurous. I've never tried spinach with fruit. I guess I should be brave and try it.

  5. This is pretty similar to what I have every day. My daughter loves it but my son is more of a cereal kind of guy. My favorite is rice milk (or almond), flax/borage oil, ground flax, almond butter, banana, kale, spinach or whatever other greens are in the fridge and frozen berries. I like to throw in a scoop of some organic protein powder too for a meal in one!! I'm loving your avocado idea though...gonna have to throw that into the mix.
