Continuing our week of girl food, what is more girly than a bright pink smoothie? Nothing I tell you, not a thing!
I have been making smoothies like a mad woman lately. I just cannot get enough! There is so much perfect fresh fruit this time of year it is pretty much all I want. And now that I have mastered adding greens to my smoothies I have decided that by adding ginormous handfuls of spinach to smoothies means that I am basically just drinking salad, right? This means it is surely okay to forgo my daily salad for lunch in favor of pizza, right?
Yes! Thank heavens we are all on the same page.
Today’s smoothie doesn’t have any spinach in it, but it is full of sweet strawberries, banana, yogurt, milk, and honey. It is thick, sweet, and ice cold! What more could you ask for?
I really like making this smoothie for breakfast. All of the fruit, with the addition of yogurt and milk really helps to fill me up, and keep me full.
But I am so bad about making more than I can actually drink. When I do that, I just pour any extra smoothie into ice cube trays and let it freeze. Then you can just pop a couple ice cubes and a liquid of your choice (milk or any juice will do) in the blender and you have a super fast snack without any measuring or getting out a bunch of different ingredients. I imagine this would be especially convenient if you have hungry teenagers in your house this summer. It only dirties up a blender!
