I never use a recipe for my smoothies.
I just put in a bunch of whatever goodness that I have in my fridge/freezer/garden.
1. My new favorite addtion to my smoothie is coconut water. I am not a big fan of the taste of it on its own. However, it is a great, natural way to hydrate. Here is what WebMD has to say about it. As a nursing mommy and avid runner, I need to stay hydrated and I would much rather sneak this stuff into a smoothie than rely on sports drinks. Trader Joe's seems to have the most reasonable prices :)
2. Throw in some avacado. I could just put in a tablespoon or so, but instead I use frozen avacado cubes. I made them for Parker, but he isn't into them yet...so instead of wasting them I have just been putting one in my smoothie every day. Good way to add some quick, healthy fats.
3. Kale. Afterall, it is one of the superfoods. And I currently have a small kale forest in my backyard. I try to stuff as much kale I can into whatever I am eating. I put some in my smoothie just about every morning when I was pregnant last summer/fall/winter. I swear you can't taste it, but beware, you may have small kale chunks stuck in your teeth every morning like I did :)
I can honestly say I didn't know squat about babies when Parker was born. Everyone said we would figure it out...and we are. However, I have found a bunch of great resources online that I refer to often. I am sure this list will grow and change as Parker does :)
