Cold fighting smoothie


I've got a little one with the sniffles and a cough today, so I blended this up for an afternoon snack. Hopefully it will help her feel better. 

Strawberry Banana Orange Smoothie

The measurements are very approximate.

  • a cup or so of Homemade almond milk
  • a cup of orange juice
  • a frozen banana
  • a few slices of frozen oranges
  • a handful of frozen strawberries
  • about a half cup of plain yogurt
  • about a tablespoon of grass fed gelatin
  • about a teaspoon of raw honey

Blend until smooth, adding extra liquid if needed, or a little more frozen fruit if it's not thick enough. 

Purple goodness smoothie


Today's smoothie:

  • purple carrots
  • purple cabbage
  • frozen strawberries, peaches and bananas
  • unsweetened coconut milk
  • honey
  • ground flax
  • chia seeds

This is the blender I have. It is expensive, but totally worth it if you will use it often. This thing can turn anything into a smooth, creamy puree. If you want to make smoothies, you simply must have a blender this powerful.
