Peach Raspberry Smoothie

I know, I know. Another smoothie recipe. But I have good reason to be posting this filled-to-the-brim-with-peaches-and-raspberries smoothie. IT’S FREAKIN’ DELICIOUS. (I say that about all of them, don’t I?) AND… With peaches being a part of the stone fruit family, I would go out on a limb and say that any of the stone fruits would be great. That means nectarines, cherries, plums, or apricots could all be substituted for the peach if that’s what you have on hand (or want to experiment with something new)....

Vanilla Almond Smoothie

I feel like my smoothie obsession has gone from healthy (and delicious) to I’ve got a serious problem and should start considering another option for breakfast. I’ll consider it … while I sip on a tall glass of vanilla almond smoothie. All joking aside, I wanted to play around with adding a dairy-free yogurt into the mix. So, this smoothie is the result of that playing. I’m not sure I’m a huge fan of yogurt in smoothies, but have a feeling that may have more to do with the kind of yogurt I was using versus an actual distaste of yogurt in smoothies. But that will require a lot of testing. And I’m 99% sure I’m...

Pineapple, Orange, and Mango Smoothie

I half expected that smoothies would have faded out of my life by now. But the truth is, they haven’t. It almost feels like the obsession has only gotten deeper. I have a different smoothie combination penciled in for each day of the week on our weekly menu plan. I’ve been taking obsessive notes about what has been going into each smoothie, and how much, so that I can come back here and share those things with you. I’ve even gone through my Instagram feed and looked over what smoothie combinations got the most interest so that I could recreate my haphazard throwing of fruit in the cup. And even...

Grapefruit + Spinach Smoothie

Have you ever noticed that kids get enamored with and/or fixated on the strangest things? During our last trip to the grocery store, The Babe was all about grapefruits. Her favorite section (and mine, too) is the fresh produce — so many cools things to look at and touch. I apparently spent a bit too much time lingering in the citrus section, because The Babe kept pointing at the grapefruit area and asking “What that?” I handed her a grapefruit and told her about their sweet and tart insides and she smiled, hug it tight, and said “Let’s get.” Your wish is my command, kiddo. And then it promptly got...

Green Grape + Spinach Smoothie

What could be a more enjoyable way to start your day than with a deliciously green smoothie in hand and a happy kiddo laughing and giggling next to you? Nothing, really. Unless, of course, we’re talking about the bowl of cookie butter and pretzel thins I just downed in response to an afternoon full of toddler antics. Because THAT was freakin’ fantastic. Our morning was filled with laughter and giggles and “Mama, more smoothie please!” It was also filled with playtime and kisses galore. But our afternoon? That was filled with a heaping cupful of misery, ear curdling screams, and as many toddler antics The Babe could cram into the...
