Easy Peasy Smoothies

Fruit smoothies are great for a quick, healthly breakfast on the go or when ever you want a refreshing snack.
I use a Magic Bullet to make mine, but you could use a regular blender if you don't have one.

I freeze large slices of over-ripe bananas in a ziploc baggie just for smoothies.  This way I don't make banana bread out of them all the time!























Strawberry Banana Smoothie

1 banana - sliced
4-5 frozen whole strawberries (I use no sugar added)
1 cup soy milk
splash of orange juice
1 tsp. ground flax seed or wheat germ

Combine ingredients into a Magic Bullet or blender.
Blend for about 30 seconds or until smooth.
Pour into a glass and enjoy.
Serves one.

I drink mine out of a Mason Jar for extra cuteness :)

You may think the spinach and banana smoothie sounds kind of gross, but it's really yummy. You can barely taste the spinach and it's a great way to get a serving of veggies in your diet. Give it a try!
























Banana Spinach Smoothie

1 banana - sliced
big handful of fresh spinach
1 cup soymilk
1 tsp. ground flax seed or wheat germ
1/2 cup crushed ice

Combine ingredients into a Magic Bullet or blender.

Pour into a glass and enjoy.
Serves one.

  5. My kids love spinach because I make smoothies with it all the time. Now they'll devour fresh spinach any day! Try pineapple with juice, banana, spinach, ice and little squeeze of lime. Mmmmm.
