Smoothie Saturday

When I run out of breakfast ideas for Baby Boy, I default to making a smoothie with whatever I have in the freezer/fridge. And this one was a hit! If you’ve never tried avocado in a smoothie, give it a shot. It gives the smoothie a creamy silky texture, without tasting the avocado. The pineapple takes over. A little taste of summer in the middle of winter.

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

Smoothie Saturday! In the spirit of fall, I wanted to create a pumpkin pie smoothie. I got all ready with my ingredients and canned pumpkin, which I thankfully tasted before adding to the blender. Tasted like fish. Guh. It had obviously gone bad, who knows how long I’ve had that can in the pantry. FAIL.

So I made another kind of pie smoothie πŸ™‚

Enjoy! Let me know if you try it.
