My favourite green smoothie
Wow where has the past week gone?? In a whirlwind of boxes and newspaper and mess, that's where!
We are slowly settling into our new home. It's school holidays now which is such a welcome relief. I think we were late for school nearly every day last week and I even forgot free dress day on the last day of term and had to do a quick trip home for a change of clothes for Oscar so he wasn't the only one in his class wearing his school uniform. Oops!
Most of our kitchen things are unpacked now and I'm getting back into cooking and baking but mornings are still rushed. This green smoothie has been an absolute saviour this past week when I haven't had time to sit down for breakfast. It is my all time favourite combination of flavours and is packed full of nutrients to keep you going for hours.
My kids love this one and luckily they are completely OK with green drinks. If yours aren't I do have a trick to help with that! We use glass mason jars with a handle and lid for smoothies and as our glasses are green, the kids have no idea what the drink actually looks like! They just love the taste and the creaminess and happily down the lot with no complaints.
(I will take a photo of our glasses so you can see what I'm talking about in the morning!)
If you're not sold on the whole green smoothie thing this one may change your mind.
