The guys often want Starbucks. They both like the strawberry smoothie-type drinks there. So I was thinking about it and figured, better than the cereal they ask for every morning, why not make them a smoothie. I have one of those mini-blenders, it should be relatively easy to accomplish first thing – and it will allow me to sneak in some of the vegetables into yet another meal of the day.
Blueberry and Spinach puree
agave syrup to sweeten and a little bit of protein powder
The ones in the picture turned out a little more purple than usual (I maybe got a little excited with the blueberry spinach mixture I guess) so I told them they were “berry smoothies” instead of strawberry. I’m getting really good at this lying stuff. They drank them up. This is definitely a do again. Next week I’m going to try to get some of the carrots and sweet potato into the smoothie. Stay tuned on how that works out for me.
