I’m all about easy when it comes to eating healthy and it doesn’t get much easier than this. I spent all of today out running errands with the babe, so by the time I got home and ready to put away groceries, I was famished. But then somehow I got caught up deep cleaning my fridge since for once it was nearly completely empty and I just dropped $200 at the store. Soooo an hour later I put away groceries and then whipped this up really fast to curb my hunger while I made something else for lunch. This is perfect because they are such staples that you usually have at home (or at least I do!) so it’s a go to recipe for me. And 30 seconds later I was a much happier mama, and even Zach liked it!

Ingredients

1/2 a banana
1/2 an apple
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup fruit juice (I used apple)
1/4 cup ice

Directions

Blend and enjoy!

I’m on day 13 straight of green smoothies in the new year, so I’m trying to change it up and experiment with ingredients. Since I just made some baby food recipes this weekend, one of the recipes tasted so good together it was almost like oatmeal cookie dough! So I changed it around to make it in green smoothie form. Yum!

Ingredients

1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1/3 cup oatmeal
1 tablespoon chopped nuts
1 tablespoon flax seed
1/2 an apple
2-3 tablespoons dried figs or raisins
1/2 cup almond milk
1-2 cups spinach

Directions

If you’re making in a Magic Bullet, I’d use one of the bigger cups. Add all ingredients and blend until smooth.
