Undressed Skeleton — Spring Smoothies!

Spring Smoothies!

When I think of Spring I think of fresh fruits, pretty flowers, and warmer weather! The warmer weather lately has had me craving my favorite snack, smoothies! Sure, I could just drive into town and buy a smoothie, but what’s the fun in that? I also like having control over what I add into my smoothie. Most places add gobs of sugar and fruit juice, I like mine more natural. It’s also a great way to get kids involved with cooking and creating healthy snacks, they love the excitement of the blender! 

Yesterday we made three different kinds of smoothie. We all have different taste preferences and it’s such a blast seeing who’s creation tasted the best! Kids are more focused on the color of course. 

The kids really like to get involved in cutting and pealing the fruit. It teaches them that eating healthy can taste delicious and still be fun. 

The first smoothie up consisted of

  • 1/2 Cup Skim Fat Free Milk
  • 1 Cup Ice
  • 3 Large Strawberries
  • 1 Cutie
  • 1/2 Medium Pear
  • 1/2 Honey Crisp Apple
  • 1/3 Cup Mixed Frozen Berries

We blended up all the ingredients and this one came out perfect! 

We cup up some extra fruit for garnishes and added a bendy straw! First Smoothie down, two more to go! 

The next smoothie consisted of:

  1. 1/2 Pear
  2. 1 Strawberry
  3. 1/2 Apple
  4. 1 Cutie
  5. 1 Cup Fresh Spinach
  6. 1 Frozen Banana
  7. 1/4 Cup Red Grapes
  8. 1/3 Cup Frozen Mixed Berries
  9. 1/2 Cup Ice
  10. 1/2 Cup Skim Milk

I found it to be incredible that usually I could put all this fruit in front of the kids and they wouldnt care to eat it, but if you blend it all up it’s like magic!

And another perfect smoothie!!

For my smoothie I just took a little bit of the both of theirs that was left over and added 4 Cups Fresh Spinach!

This was the first time trying a spinach smoothie and I was totally shocked by the outcome. I loved it. If eating spinach is hard for you I’d definitely consider trying it in a smoothie. The fruit over powers the flavor, and because it is still fresh all the nutrients are still left. 

Our yummy smoothies!
