Green Smoothies Perfect for Lunch, Breakfast or After School Snack!
Being a blogger and a professional photographer has advantages. It means that I am usually working for home most of the time. This is great for a homebody like me. I get to take breaks and play with the cats. It also means that I have to come up with an idea for lunch everyday.
Most days it’s just a sandwich and chips, because by the time I get off the computer and go upstairs to eat, I am usually so hungry, I opt for the fastest. Then the other day, a lightbulb went off. I have a Vitamix and I have the book, The Blender Girl Smoothies. I could be making a nutritious smoothie for lunch! I settled on this Creamy Dreamy Smoothie.
Stocking Your Pantry and Freezer for Smoothies
I could easily make this smoothie because I had everything I needed on hand. Since getting my Vitamix, whenever organic fruits (and some veggies) are on sale, I buy them and freeze them, like this Freezing Kiwi for example.
So, right now in my freezer I have bags of spinach, kale, peaches, kiwi, mangoes, strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, blueberries and probably more. I am pretty much ready for any smoothie recipe you through at me.
I also keep my pantry stocked with superfood stir ins, like
Creamy Dreamy Spinach Smoothie
This smoothie almost tastes like dessert, but it is so good for you! Made with almond milk, bananas, spinach, mangoes and peaches! It is sweetened with maple syrup and you can boost it’s nutrients even more with chia seeds, flaxseed oil, or lucuma powder.
