Kale-Strawberry-Banana Smoothie Recipe

Guest post from Ashley:
I'm not a big smoothie person, and appearance means everything to me when it comes to my food. My New Year's resolution was to drink more "healthy" smoothies for breakfast instead of my favorite Lucky Charms Cereal. I tried so many flavor combinations so far, some successes and some epic failures. Needless to say, when I tried this combination, I was completely surprised at how good it tasted (despite it's color)!


You will need:

1 cup tightly packed kale
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
1 ripe banana
1 cup vanilla greek yogurt
1 tablespoon Hemp Hearts
Almond-Coconut Milk- enough to get to the consistency you like

Combine all ingredients into a blender, except milk. Start blender on "Smoothie Mode" if yours has one, and slowly add the milk until it gets to the consistency you like. I like thinner smoothies, so I add about 1/2 cup. 

Enjoy!

Shopping with Natalie: Target July 31st




Today was an unplanned trip to Target with my son Brenden who is 13. I must add he's watched a few episodes of the US Extreme Couponing which featured teenage Couponers and he decided to help and learn. 
When we got in, I reviewed the catilina coupons I have in my binder. He quickly noticed the $5 off any video games catinilna and he was off to the electronics section. He came back with a smile and told me he found a variety of games for $6.80! In disbelief, I followed him and sure enough there were we games for Wii & DS that have regular prices of $19.99 marked down to $6.80. And the $5 coupon makes them $1.80!! I had 6 coupons. I gave him 3. We each choose 3 games to purchase. Also I got a few school supplies: papermate ink joy pens $1 per pack - $1 WUB 2 Target coupon = $.50 per pack Crayola markers $3 -25% off Target coupon =$2.25 Black Diamond Cheese strings 16 pk $4.99 -$1 Target Coupon -$1 coupon from cheese slices =$2.99 each Breyers ice cream $1 -$1 coupon x 6 = FREE Tostitos x 2 $3 -$2 WUB 2 = $2 each 2 DVDs $5 each -$2 catilina coupon = $3 each $171 total retail. I used $42 in coupons, I used my red card for all purchases and saved another 5% on everything and my out of pocket cost was $31! It was a great shop and I'll defiantly bring my son Brenden on future shopping trips. ~Natalie
