2 Great Ideas for Delicious Smoothies

Most people are surprised when I tell them this, but...

My wonderful dear husband HATES vegetables.

For someone like me who absolutely loves veggies and teaches people all the wonderful ways they can incorporate vegetables into their healthy daily meal plans, this is hard! Because more than anything, I want my loved ones to be healthy and reap the rewards of the wonderful nutrition vegetables have to offer.

For a little while there, it was even more difficult because my older son became exceptionally picking about what he would and would not eat. I know that's pretty normal for most children, but I wanted to do what I could to ensure my son was getting all the vital nutrition a growing child needs.

Since my husband and both of my sons absolutely love smoothies, I came up with a few different delicious smoothies they all really enjoy. These smoothies include a few "secret" ingredients they wouldn't normally eat.

Green Smoothie

I always add 1 tablespoon of Daily Energy (my favorite greens powder) into my husband's smoothies and 1/2 teaspoon into my sons' for extra "nutritional insurance."

The 3-year-old Morning Delight

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (homemade is best!)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 - 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 small kale leaves
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp Daily Energy

Directions

Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. I don't add extra ice because the blueberries are frozen.

My sons drink every last drop of this and it makes breakfast time super easy for me.

The Hubbie Breakfast Special

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp Daily Energy
  • 1 apple, cut into a few pieces (I leave the skin on)
  • 1 large handful raw spinach or 2 kale leaves
  • 2 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1-2 cups water (depending on how thick you want it)
  • 2-3 ice cubes (or more if you want it slushy)

Directions

Add all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Super nutritious breakfast!

The best part about smoothies is you can be super creative and mix and match any combination of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and different liquids (coconut milk, almond milk, water).

What's YOUR favorite smoothie combination?
