Well hello again friends!
Now that summer is over and all my boys are back in school, I can finally find some time to post our favorite recipes again:) Sorry for the long summer break, but I was a busy Momma the last few months. I LOVE summertime with all my boys home but I also LOVE the school year with more structure. Today was the first day of school for us and it is definitely bitter sweet. This year I have a senior, 8th grader, 5th grader and 4th grader. Not to mention my oldest son who is serving a full time mission right now! Time is flying by–and my boys are growing up so fast– I am doing my best to soak up the time with them and enjoy it!
I like to start the day off for my family with a nice green smoothie. We have this everyday, if not in the morning then for after school or even with dinner. I have posted my method here already. This summer I bought the Simple Green Smoothie Cookbook to try some new smoothie recipes for variety, but found that my boys really just prefer the standard smoothie that they list first called ‘Beginners Luck’ the best. Silly boys are not interested in much variety! I thought I would share it with you too because it is really tasty and great way to start on the green smoothie habit. I love that I can get some super nutritious goodness into my kids first thing in the morning. It’s like a little diet insurance policy!
**I will say that a very powerful blender is key! I have the Blendtec and LOVE it. We use it daily and it is on it’s 9th year now!!
