Recipe | Summer Dreams Smoothie


To ward off more ickies in our house, Izzy and Christian are drinking more orange juice. (OJ is sadly not on my diet plan until I meet my weight loss goal.) Since we are having a very strange winter here with warmer than usual temps, I often find myself daydreaming about summer time and craving fruity drinks. I thought I'd switch it up a bit and make smoothies today. 

Now, if you've spent any amount of time on my blog, you know that I am no master of the kitchen. In fact, I am a down right disaster. My recipes are full of blunders, missing info, maybe a few swear words and the end result is almost always ugly. Surprisingly though - they are always tasty! So this is my attempt at whipping up a healthy smoothie for the kid and husband anyway. 

Here's what you'll need for the smoothie:
100% Florida Orange Juice
Vanilla Greek Yogurt
(and ignore the Bai and the Jell-o in the photo.
Both are awesome but I ended up not
using either- which I will tell you about in a minute.)

I had originally planned on throwing in some blueberry Bai for flavor. But then I remembered that Bai is caffeinated. That would NOT have gone over well with Izzy. I can barely keep this kid from spontaneously combusting on a daily basis. I certainly won't let her sip on anything with caffeine in it. And I was going to make a popsicle/smoothie creation with the Jell-o. But then these two sucked up all my supplies!

I did manage to snag a few cups to throw in the freezer for quick blending in the morning.

So as you can see, even a disaster in the kitchen like me can whip up a nutritious and tasty smoothie. If you attempt this, let me know how it turns out.

If not, I completely understand. ;)
