Smoothies are not just for those wanting to lose weight. In fact, smoothies are great for everyone who is busy and needs a portable breakfast or snack. Getting up early to get the kids off to school, or maybe your kids have early morning sports practices? Smoothies are a super option to kick start their day and yours. Why not add a smoothie drink or smoothie bowl to your breakfast routine. They can pack a punch of protein, nutrients and you can add veggies and fruit that maybe the kiddos wouldn’t normally try!
Early morning swim practices will give me a chance to get Lorne eating healthier during the week. Our smoothies will be prepped and frozen, some made up already, and some in smoothie packs (all the ingredients except liquid, in a freezer back to just pop in the blender).
Smoothies are something I have always wanted to be able to make well, and for some reason, I have had a hard time getting them to turn out. So I have compiled a few that are awesome and my goal for the New Year is to have smoothies on our menu on a regular basis!
