MONDAY MOTIVATION: It's Smoothie Season

MONDAY MOTIVATION: Smoothie Season

Looks like the sun and heat is coming out this week and that gets me really excited for some cold beverages this summer (and I don't mean beer ... well, maybe in moderation)!  I am talking SMOOTHIES today!  Smoothies are such an easy way to pack some great nutrition into one glass without too much effort.  I like to prep them on the weekends by putting all the ingredients (minus the liquid) into a zipped plastic bag and storing it in the freezer.  Then when I want one, all I have to do is grab one of the bags, empty its contents into a blender and add liquid to blend it up and its ready to go in minutes!  Here are a couple of great ideas for nutrition packed smoothies that you can freeze:

Mint Chocolate Chip Breakfast Smoothie
1 cup plain greek yogurt
2 tsp. raw local honey
2 cups spinach or other dark leafy green
2 frozen bananas, sliced
½ cup unsweetened almond milk
3 tbsp. dark chocolate chips
2 tbsp. ground flaxseed
1 tsp. chia seeds
¼ tsp. mint extract
 
Directions: Combine all ingredients into a plastic bag except the yogurt, honey, mint extract and almond milk and freeze.  When ready to make, add in the remaining liquids and blend until smooth.


Fruity Green Smoothie (makes 2-3)
2 oranges peeled
5-10 oz. fresh spinach
1 cup of almond milk
2 tsp. chia seeds
1 ½ cups frozen strawberries
2 frozen bananas
 
Directions: Place all ingredients into a plastic bag except almond milk.  When ready to use, empty into a blender and add the almond milk and blend until smooth.

Here is the mid year season and this kind of the milkshake or smoothies are so in. I am looking for the more gainful shake which gives most extraordinary vitamins to the body. The fixings that you use in this recipe are stacked with awesome vitamins and thank for sharing this equation.
