The weekend was very busy!  When all 4 kids are home and we are running around checking off the events in their social calendar it leaves little time for writing a blog post.  However, we did find time for the important things like our 2 year olds birthday party AND a green smoothie each day!  The smoothies we made over the weekend were pink-green smoothies so my 5 year old would drink it but they still had all of that green power behind them!  I posted pics on Facebook…take a look!

Today, I’m back to my bright green smoothies!  I wasn’t sure what I wanted so I just let my 7 month old grab some things for me.  This is what he came up with:

1 cup spinach, chard, kale mixphoto 1

1 granny smith apple, sliced

1 banana

1 orange, peeled and sectioned

1/2 cup mango, frozen

2 tbsp ground chia

I blended the greens first and then added apple, banana and mango followed ny the orange and chia.

This was way to sweet for me!  I could only drink half and I saved the rest for my husband.  I think if I added half an apple and half an orange it would have been better – or more greens :)!  I may try to tweak this one late tonight.

And, if you are in the Groton-area, check out our workshop series that is starting this week.  This week we will start with Nutrition 101.
