Pucker Up! Meyer Lemon Chobani Spinach Smoothie.

I adore a good smoothie!!  I decided to use up some of my many Meyer lemons that I have on hand and I’m so glad I did.  The result is a tart, yet vitamin-packed smoothie that will curb your hunger for hours.

Into the blender, add…

4 ozs of freshly squeezed Meyer Lemon juice
1 individual cup of Chobani lemon yogurt
1 handful of baby spinach leaves
2 kiwis, peeled
1 tsp of flax seed meal
3 ice cubes
Blend on your smoothie setting and let it works it magic.  Pour into your glass and enjoy!  It is tart but so refreshing!




Spinach, mixed berry, Chobani, raw milk smoothie.

This is a great way to sneak in some veggies into your kids without them having any idea!  This smoothie is so versatile.  Add what you have or prefer and make it your own.

Into the blender add a handful of spinach leaves, 1/4 to 1/2 c of Chobani vanilla Greek Yogurt, 1.5 c of frozen berries (you can use fresh) and a cup of milk (I used raw).  Blend until smooth.  If you need to add more milk b/c the smoothie is too thick, do so.  If it’s too watery, add a banana or flax seed meal.  I have also used an avocado, protein powder etc.  Again, use what you love and have on hand.

Serve in a fun glass with a straw and watch it disappear!


Mixed fruit & spinach protein smoothie

Okay I have one child that lives to eat & one that eats to live!  My youngest daughter doesn’t have a huge appetite ever!  So, with that, I try to make every bite as vitamin packed & healthy as possible.  This smoothie is super healthy & delicious.  I promise… the kids have no idea how good it is for them!
In a blender, add a handful of baby spinach leaves, two cups of fruit – frozen, fresh – whatever.  I added peaches/strawberries/cherries & 1 banana.  I scoop of Whey protein powder.  Optional – you can add a scoop or two of low fat frozen yogurt or ice cream (I normally do this but didn’t today) or a scoop of yogurt.  I also add one cup of almond milk (you can use regular low fat milk) and 2 tsp of flax seed meal and then start to blend it.  My blender has a smoothie setting so I use that.  Once it starts to combine, I will drizzle more milk in to get the consistency that I wish to achieve.  Pour into a glass, add a straw and enjoy!

There is so much flexibility that you have when making smoothies.  You can go all green – spinach, green apples, avocados etc.  You can add or delete what you like.  Have fun with it but my only suggestion is if you’re adding the spinach… whip the smoothie up before the kids see it :)


Fresh Mango Banana Smoothie

My daughter had a herbst appliance put in her mouth today by our orthodontist & knowing how painful this must be, I decided to make her a liquid after-school snack to help.  I took my mango pitter – the best tool for removing a mango pit by far – & peeled the remaining flesh.  Toss that in your blender with 4 scoops of low or non-fat vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt, 1 ripe banana & 3/4 c of low fat milk or almond milk.  I also throw in some flaxseed meal (2 tbl).  Blend that in your blender (mine has a smoothie setting).  And pour into glasses with a straw.  This makes two large servings.
