The not-so-smooth smoothie queen

Can you believe it’s MAY already!?!? Are you ready for SUMMER yet!? I know I sure am!

may

One of my favorite things about the warmer weather is…fresh berries, cold refreshing drinks, and SMOOTHIES!!

smoothieee

I do have to confess one thing though…

I’m the worst smoothie maker. :-/ No joke!

I’ve tried and tried on several occasions but I just can’t make them as tasty, delicious and absolutely wonderful as I would like/hope they would be. I guess my issue is that I love to just throw things into the blender with the hope that the combo is as lovely as I envision….however half of time they are beautiful in color and totally lacking in taste! 😦 So the whole “winging-it” when making smoothies clearly does NOT work for me.

While I lack smoothie making skills….I have to say my husband is quite the opposite and is officially the *SMOOTHIE KING* of the casa!! He whips up an ever-so-delicious green smoothie! ❤

So since I’m clearly one who needs to follow a smoothie recipe step-by-step, I’ve been looking for new smoothie recipes online and came across a few that look pretty tasty! {Now if only I can make them taste as good as they look! lol}

    We never have berries available in the house they are eaten raw before they go into the fridge. In my casa, we make agua fresca.

  2. I love my smoothies, especially the past few weeks! I have been on a smoothie kick, baby g loves them! I usually just mix together a frozen fruit mix, protein powder, raw oats, stevia, almond milk, and sometimes spinach to make a yum smoothie!! Glad your husband is a smoothie king! I need to teach Mike how to make my smoothies so he can make for me when baby arrives and I have no time!

    Happy Thursday! ❤

    Oh your son is so cute, just have to say again!

  3. I love that your little one loves green smoothies too! That’s great! I haven’t had great luck with just “winging it” when it comes to making a smoothie for the first time, but once I’ve made the same recipe a couple of times it’s easy to just guesstimate how much of what should go in it because I’ve done it so many times. 🙂

    • I think that’s my issue-I just want to guesstimate ALL the time…but my guesstimations are always off. 😛 I need more practice!! 🙂

  4. Oh goodness! I definitely can never make my food look as tasty as online haha. Smoothies are just so totally yummy 🙂 At least one of the family members makes an “A-approved” smoothie, right?! Just make him make them all of the time! Fair enough in my opinion!

  5. Smoothies can be hard!! It’s often a hit or miss. I love this recipe, though! 1 frozen banana, 1 T. nut butter, 3/4 o a cup to1 cup almondmilk, handful spinach. So creamy!

  6. I think the key is balancing the fruit with the veggies. Haha.

    I often make them with mostly fruit, a serving of yogurt, and a carrot. Oh, and every smoothie has a banana! I haven’t gotten into the green drinks yet.

  7. We love smoothies in our house too. I haven’t ventured to adding spinach in yet. But I am going to this week, I simple need to get some spinach from the grocery store. 🙂 I have read one of the best fruits to add into a spinach smoothie is blueberries.

  8. I honestly do not have a favorite smoothie recipe. I’ve made so many different kinds (feel free to check out some of the ones I have on my pg) that I just can’t narrow it down, Ha Ha!

    p.s. your little one is adorable ❤

  9. I tried to make a milkshake (oops, not healthy) the other day without a recipe and it was TERRIBLE!! My husband could not understand what I did to it since there are just a few ingredients. We threw it out. So you aren’t the only one!!
