Smoothie King

Max and I have fully embraced smoothies these last few months. We have at least one, if not two, a day.

Our morning always starts out with a green smoothie. If you don't know exactly what a green smoothie is, you should try one. I can't think of a better way to start the day. (Well, start the day after my mandatory cup o' joe).

Most of our green smoothies (and keep in mind, there is no recipe to follow) start with lots of fresh fruit. Bananas, peaches, mangos, cherries, berries, really, whatever I have on hand that sounds like it would be good together. We add some greens (that is where the green smoothie part comes in) like spinach, kale, chard, parsley and anything else green we can find in our fridge! Add some raw honey, chia seeds, dash of flax seeds if we feel like it, fresh lemon juice, carrot juice and if need be purified water.

So day to day, the color of our smoothie changes. Max's least favorite is when it is actually green. Usually means mama put in too much of that healthy lettuce and such. ;)

So drink up! Max sure does. And has the smoothie mustache to prove it!
