Salted Caramel Protein Smoothie

Smoothies are my go-to when I’m hungry and don’t have time to prepare a meal. They are also great on the go once I bought some mason jars and special lids to hold straws.

I don’t usually buy smoothies because they are so frigging expensive and I always feel like I could have made the same at home, but I had the best tasting smoothie at the Big Carrot Juice Bar a couple of weeks ago–salted caramel deliciousness. I thought I would recreate it with a protein boost and it turned out great.

Smoothie Sunday

It’s been hectic over here. Baby Boy is sick with a cold, and got the Mr and myself sick as well. The poor little guy can barely breathe when he’s sleeping on his back. If only they knew how to blow their nose at 8 months…

So instead of Smoothie Saturday, it’s Smoothie Sunday this week πŸ™‚ And what better way to start the morning after a no-sleep week than with some green tea! Matcha green tea powder has some beneficial antioxidant properties and is a great way to change up your smoothies. Leave me a comment and let me know how you like it.

Smoothie Saturday

Here we are again–Smoothie Saturday!

I’ve been staring at the frozen cherries in my freezer for a while, and while I don’t equate cherries with the fall, who care?! After my car battery dying and two flat tires on a cold day yesterday, Mama needed a taste of summer. Adding the chia seeds thickens the smoothie a bit and adds some healthy omega-3 fat to your drink.
