Sometimes a recipe with 3 or 4 ingredients is pretty amazing. This is one of those times. I was with some friends for a girls’ night out (who is up for another one soon?) and we started talking about blogging. One friend said she made this awesome smoothie and I should really post about it. Shout out to Kristin and a possible blog in the works! And she was right, this is awesome.
Lots of people love my peanut butter oatmeal smoothie and I know you’ll like this one too. It’s perfect for breakfast, an after school snack, or a healthy dessert. The kids definitely bought into this. Making smoothies is a super simple way to get your kids in the kitchen.
Speaking of buying, we recently got a vita-mix and I cannot tell you how amazing it is. It is my single most favorite kitchen tool. I thought my food processor was my favorite thing. Nope. Most days I rinse and reuse it 2 or 3 times. What I’m really telling you is that it’s worth every precious penny and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.
This said, my blending capabilities have grown. If you have a regular blender all smoothie recipes here will work, but they might need more liquid added to make it blend. It’s still totally worth the effort. I’ve done the mix, stop the blender, stir with spoon, mix again, stop, stir, mix, etc, etc with regular blenders to know what you go through. Now go, make yourself a mid-day smoothie and enjoy some sunshine (at least if you live in the Portland area)….
