another yogurt-ish smoothie … with yogurt

Hi all.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVE!

Jeanne here.

I want you all to know that Abby’s not the only one to concoct smoothies for the littles!

We pretty much find some time during each day to enjoy a version of this one.  (Today it was breakfast.  Yesterday, it was around 4 pm because we knew we were going to a friends’ house for dinner and were forewarned that dinner, although tasty, was going to be less than nutritious.)

Makes 4 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ cup whole milk yogurt (sometimes it’s plain.  Sometimes it’s maple.  Every once in a while, it’s vanilla)
  • 1 banana
  • ½ to ¾ cup berries (or melon or pineapple – and they can fresh or frozen, but always organic)
  • 2 cups greens (spinach or kale … it’s kale in the summer because it’s a garden staple)
  • 1 cup Kombucha
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 2 packets of Emergen-C (any flavor.  I like tangerine.  The Cowboy goes for super orange)
  • 4 Tbls ground flax seed or chia seeds (optional)

Everything gets put into the Vita-Mix and blended until smooth.

It’s packed with protein and good fats, anti-oxidents, vitamins and minerals and omega-3 fatty acids (when we add the flax or chia).

And everyone in the house gets a glass …

… some glasses are just a little bigger than others. 🙂

And now I have to go make a pie … and some non-GMO corn pudding.  What’s on YOUR docket today?

PS – Don’t forget to sign up for our WHOLE FOODS MARKET GIFT CARD GIVE-AWAY … registration closes at 10 pm PST.  Good Luck!
