Hello!  Today I want to share a simple and healthy smoothie recipe with you.  Well, it is not a recipe per say but I will just tell you what I do.
My family LOVES smoothies!!!
We make them ALL the time, especially during the summer!  It is a great healthy meal that requires little prep and clean-up time plus it is a great way to get you’re your family to eat a healthy meal!
We make them a little different everyday because we just use what is on hand.  I don’t think I ever had a smoothie that I didn’t like.
I will just show you what I made today.  If you follow me on facebook, then you already know, lol!
I started with lots of fresh strawberries (I usually use frozen but these were on sale and I didn’t have time to freeze these.)

Then I added 2 bananas and some milk.

I don’t measure the milk, I just pour (or have the kids help me.)

I ALWAYS add a quality protein to make it a complete meal.  This is especially important with breakfast.

I always let the kids take turns pushing the buttons, lol!  Why do they always fight over that?

We bring it to a nice vortex.

Since we didn’t use frozen bananas or strawberries, I had the kids add ice through the top one at a time.

We ALL enjoy these shakes and it is super easy and healthy!!!
Cleaning Tip:  Wash your blender right away before the shake starts to harden on to the blender. 
What is your favorite smoothie?
