For this week's Healthy Mama post I thought I would share the smoothie recipe that I make every day. This is an excellent way to work in some fruit & veggies into your day...especially when chasing around after baby doesn't leave much time to prepare a proper meal. I have one of these every day after my morning workout and it is so rejuvinating! Here's what you'll need:
If you don't own a magic bullet - you really should think about getting one. This little beast is very affordable (around $30) and it is super functional! I use not only to make my smoothies, but I puree all of Chloe's foods in it, soups, crush nuts...the list goes on & on!
1. 1 cup Spinach (can be frozen or fresh)
I put the frozen items in first to make sure they blend up nicely. I like my shakes to be really thick so that I can enjoy it longer. Usually, I'll make it before going to the gym and put it in a stainless bottle so it keeps it's thickness. The great thing is you can be really creative and experiment with different fruits & flavours all while getting a great dose of nutrients!
