With the birth of Arlo, I knew that I could no longer eat like a college student [goodbye nightly mac n cheese!] And having a natural aversion to all things green and healthy, I knew I had to trick myself into better eating habits. Smoothies were an awesome solution. Worried that my son might acquire the same distaste for fruits and veggies, I quickly transformed this into a morning ritual for the both of us. Now every morning, we get to share this delicious green smoothie together – giving us a nutritious jumpstart to the day!
- 1 banana
- 1 peeled kiwi
- 1 circular slice of pineapple
- 1 small green apple
- 2 handfuls of spinach
- 1 small avocado
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt [I use Fage Nonfat Total 0%]
- 1 cup ice
Optional: Up your antioxidant and Omega-3 intake by adding some yummy açai chia seed pudding to the mix.
Blend all ingredients for a few minutes. Then mix in any chunks that got sprayed onto the sides and blend again for another minute or two.
Enjoy! Best served fresh, but I have stored leftovers in the fridge for Arlo to eat later that same day.
