Today I am hanging out with my little man, Mason. After working outside in the garden we were looking for a snack to have and one of our favorite snacks is smoothies. We had partial jar of canned peaches from last year and some leftover raspberries from what we put in the freezer this year. Add in some yogurt and some ice cubes and blend until delicious!
For the adult version of a breakfast smoothie I will add coffee cubes. if there is ever any leftover coffee in the pot I will pour it into ice cube trays and freeze them. once they’re frozen the next day I will take them out and put them into a container that I keep in the freezer.
Don’t be afraid to try adding some new ingredients to your smoothies. Peanut butter, honey, oatmeal, chopped nuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, protein powder, graham crackers even! Try fresh herbs our spices like mint or lemonbalm. How about a tomato-based smoothie with ingredients that you would use in a spaghetti sauce or maybe even chili?
What kind of concoctions do you put together in a blender to have for smoothies? Do you have any more good ideas for me? Share in the comments below!
I am up and leaving the house early so I need a breakfast that doesn’t take preparation and can go with me. Oatmeal is cheap, stores and is good for you. I like preparing my breakfast the night before when I pack my lunch the next day. I have tried the banana-peanut butter recipe and it was very tasty. Expecting the rubber cement texture of cold oatmeal I was pleasantly surprised by the creaminess. When I have ingredients for the variations I will definitely try them!
Have you tried anything like these recipes before? Can we substitute the oatmeal for something else? If you give these a try, please let us know in the comments how it turns out!
