Green Smoothies

Good Morning Girls,
I'm sure by the time you read this, I'll be in Wisconsin sharing a long weekend with most of you.  It should be a great family bonding experience.

Last week I took Nate and went to State Fair with dad, Dayna and Logan.  It was so fun to bring our four-year olds and enjoy the smells, sounds and sights of the fair.  I love that atmosphere!  We also had to stop by the Vita-Mix demo and taste the green smoothie..  We all loved it, even the little boys.  I do love green smoothies, not only how they taste, but the nutrition they are packed with.  One thing I learned was that lime is wonderful addition to a green refreshing.  I had to try it on my kids the next day and they really liked it as well.  I think the citrus helps mask the kale taste and I also added more spinach that I have been lately.  I only put in about 1/8 of a lime, peel and all.  Wash it well before using it, but you'll be surprised by the great flavor it adds.  This morning we had another green smoothie and this is what I added: spinach, flax seed, water, pineapple, bananas, apples and about 1 Tblsp. apple juice concentrate with some water and ice.  You all know that I love my vita-mix and green smoothies is one of the reasons why. 

Enjoy your day!
