Ah! Smoothies! I love a good smoothie! Lately, I’ve been obsessed with pumpkin smoothies that actually give me a feeling of eating pumpkin pie. Yesterday I made a green smoothie with spinach, pumpkin, avocado, coconut milk and pumpkin spices. It was soo delicious and full of important fats, vitamins, minerals and protein. Kept me full from lunch until dinner.
In keeping with the theme of quick meals, the smoothie may be the best way to get those fruits, veggies and protein in all at once. If you’re pressed for time, you can pull a few items, throw them into your blender and voila! Instant meal!
In reading about smoothies, I came across a post by Running To the Kitchen. I love this blog and Gina always has something yummy posted like her Blueberry Coconut Chia pudding. But I digress. Gina blogged about the ingredients to make the perfect smoothie. You’ll find recipes for some great smoothies as well.
What is your favorite smoothie recipe? Share with me if you will. Thanks.
