Since it’s Saturday today, I had a bit more time in the mornings then I usually do. I decided to get a bit more creative with my morning smoothies by mixing ingredients that I wouldn’t usually.

For a bit of added protein, I threw in a handful of almonds. They made the smoothie surprisingly smoother then usual, and the carrots blended together perfectly with the strawberries and apple slices.

This smoothie has an excellent variety of nutrition, and will make your taste buds smile for hours!

Ingredients:

  • Apples
  • Almonds
  • Carrots
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • All-natural apple juice
  • Ice

Try it out and let me know what you think!

Marine Smoothie Explosion!!

image

My boyfriend Bryan is in the Marines- and even with his busy schedule,  he still finds time to make smoothies! He texted me this picture of his all natural green smoothie that exploded all over everything, and I couldn’t help but laugh and put it on my health blog.

Don’t forget to close the lids on your blenders everyone!

Be inspired by Bryan’s incredible ability to find time for smoothie making throughout his 11 hour work days in the Marines.

If he can wake up at 5am everyday, and still have time to eat healthy, you can eat healthy too!

I’m so excited to have added tomatoes to my fruit smoothie this morning. Growing up as such a picky eater, It’s something that I never thought I’d do.
I’m taking baby steps into the veggie+smoothie world, and only adding one type at a time.
This morning I added tomatoes to a pineapple raspberry mango smoothie, and to my surprise I couldn’t even taste them!

Adding vegetables to your smoothies, is a great way to pump up your natural nutrients for the day.

Get creative, try it out!
