Simple Smoothies

No matter how advanced we all become with our kitchen skills… No matter how delicious the lengthy recipes can be… We all need to know how to get quality ingredients into our bodies F*A*S*T!

Let’s face it, life can be busy. Whether you are at home raising a family or out in the working world strengthening your career — or like me, doing both — we all need no fuss recipes for ‘on the go’. Simple, nutritious recipes are an added bonus when the kiddos will lap them up, too. Our school mornings became a breeze when I stopped cooking breakfast and instead hit a button on a blender. Viola! Breakfast in a cup! This one simple step has added at least 30 minutes or more to our morning.

Here’s a video that shows two of my favorite smoothie recipes for starting the day off right. This video is packed full tips and techniques to save time and to set yourself up for SUCCESS! It also teaches you how to camouflage leafy greens with blueberries and chocolate!! Green + Blue = Chocolaty Brown!  If you have a picky eater, calling it a chocolate milkshake might get you a better response.
