Our Favorite Smoothie

This is just a list of ingredients. I just start putting these things into my blender and taste/adjust amounts as I go. I do always put the same things in though. After trying so many different combinations of things, this is our favorite. My kids love it and I love that they love it! This makes for a happy family! And who doesn't want that?! We do smoothies for breakfast all the time, but they are great whenever and can even be frozen into popsicles.

Our Favorite Smoothie

ripe bananas
yogurt (I like Greek, more protein and probiotics...Greek Gods is the best brand in my book)
orange juice
vanilla, just a few drops
protein powder (we use the soy,vanilla flavored, it adds sweetness)
a handful of baby spinach and/or kale (the beauty is you can't taste it)
frozen or fresh berries (we like blueberries, strawberries and raspberries the best. Plus the color hides the green from the veggies)
ice (you won't need very much or any at all if you use frozen berries)

Blend this all together until smooth. I don't add any additional sweetener, it is always sweet enough for us. But if you want it sweeter, honey or agave both work great.
