Day 3 we woke up with a case of the sniffles so a dose of vitamin C was in order. This smoothie, Tropical Sneak Attack, fit the bill with an added bonus of iron from the spinach. Gotta love those sneaky vegetables!
1 cup frozen pinneapple
6 oz coconut greek yogurt
handful of spinach
1 1/2 cups orange juice
Day 4's smoothie, Strawberry Lassi, tasted exactly like a milkshake! It totally blurred the lines between meal and dessert.
Like shark week only with tasty, fruity beverages! Rory loves to have smoothies for breakfast but we often get stuck in the rut of drinking the same one every day. This week we are branching out with a new recipe each morning. We started off our Monday with a creamy dreamy yet healthy peach and oat smoothie. The Kiddo loved it, score! Here's the recipe:
The night before combine 1/2 cup quick cook oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, and 1 cup milk (cow/almond/coconut, whatever floats your boat). Let sit overnight to soak.
In the morning place 1/2 of pre-made oat/chia mixture in blender. Add 1 banana, a handful of frozen peaches, 1/4 cup greek yogurt, 1/4 milk of choice (I used cow but feel free to use almond or coconut), and a couple teaspoons of honey to sweeten. Blend until combined. Pour in glass and enjoy! How easy was that?! Join us tomorrow for smoothie #2.
