power packed strawberry banana smoothie

Abby here… A big thanks to Jeanne for the kind words on her post this morning.  Having a friend you love that has kids the same age as yours is the best case scenario!  And  in case you forgot how awesome I think she is, check out this old post!

Anyways… 

We’re big smoothie fans.  We don’t do them every single day, but we have been on a kick this week.

I love having them first thing in the morning, as it just starts the day on a good note.  Not to mention… it’s an easy way to cram a bunch of greens into my kids.

We usually sit by the big kitchen window while drinking them and get some vitamin D.  And what’s a smoothie without a smoothie face!

What I used:

  • 1/3 cup chia seeds soaked in 1-2 cups unsweetened coconut milk (for at least 15 minutes)
  • 2 giant handfuls of leafy greens (I used spinach and kale)
  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • purified water to get to desired consistency
  • Vitamix or high speed blender

Throw everything into the Vitamix, and blend until smooth.  Feel free to add whatever else you like.  Yesterday I threw in an avocado and today I threw in about a cup of broccoli sprouts.

Blend well and serve immediately.
