Grown Healthy: Smoothies

posted in: grown healthy | 4

 

 

We absolutely love smoothies because they are full of flavor, color, and goodness. Smoothies are perfect to enjoy anytime of the day. My kiddos really enjoy making and drinking smoothies. We were overfilled with joy when we received our green blender package, which was delivered to our front door. Now this is not your regular smoothie package. You won’t receive a whole box of dried things. Instead you receive real, fresh fruits, vegetables, boosters, and leafy greens. Often times kiddos and I have a hard time creating different kinds of smoothies, we usually make the same ones so we loved that green blender not only provided everything we needed to make the 5 smoothies but also the ingredients needed to make these smoothies in the near future. We now will have more than a handful of smoothie recipes to choose from.

Each week green blender sends you everything you need in order for you to make 5 new smoothies to your front door (each recipe yields two 12oz servings). Visit http://greenblender.com for more information.

We honestly enjoyed all of these smoothies. We would have never thought of making these types of smoothies. Now we can’t wait to come up with our own smoothie combinations. Thanks green blender for encouraging us to get out of our box and create new unfamiliar smoothies.

  1. I love Green Blender they have the best tasting smoothies! I love their I’m unique recipes. These combos sound so delicious!

  2. This is awesome! I have never heard of green blender, but it sounds like a wonderful idea! I will pin this so I can save the recipes and make myself sometime. Or maybe I will just look into getting the Green Blender service, because, let’s face it, with kids, it is tough to get out and buy all the healthy food you need sometimes!

  3. We love smoothies in our house! Some great recipes here. How great that they come ready to go in these packs
