Going Green for 2012
I've always cared about the environment, I like playing outside!! This post, however is about making smoothies...GREEN ones...
As mentioned in my last post, I am loving all the interesting, amazing stuff you can find on PINTEREST. In 2012 I'm going to be getting lots "pinned" and updating you guys on what I find that I actually make & love!
I'll do my best to keep it interesting & add my own recipes too, as I have in the past (can you believe this blog will be FIVE years old this year?!? I can't)
So I figure, what's the use of all my pretty pinboards if I'm not actually MAKING the stuff?? This seemed like a good place to start;
With spinach! Easy enough to make in less than 15 minutes (a must with a very energetic 4mo old over here) and its goooood for ya! Nice.
My dear friend Naomi always rocked the green smoothies so I knew it be good tasting too.
Via pinterest here's the recipe:
2 bananas, peeled & cut into pieces
1c. Nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1c. Filtered water
2 big handfuls of baby leaf spinach
Blend & serve- makes TWO 8oz smoothies
I like this because I can make them the night before each blender full makes breakfast for me and for Nate that's just waiting for us in te frige the next morning!
The second week I made em I added a handful of blueberries!
Got a new recipe to try for next week, with a super easy time saving tip that make it possible to whip these up in less than FIVE minutes! Stay tuned & follow my findings on pinterest
