Mom Monday {Smoothies by Color}

It’s pretty easy to make a smoothie that looks, well unappetizing. I had fallen into a rut of making what I call “The Kitchen Sink Smoothie”. Basically whatever we had in the house would end up in the smoothie. Spinach and carrots, strawberries and cucumbers etc…This many days would end up as a brown really yucky looking smoothie. And while it may have tasted good, the flavors started to get muddled. So we are now on a roll with making smoothies by color. It’s so fun, and the flavors really shine with each version. For now I have been sprinkling the flax seed and hemp seed on our granola, or using it in soaked oats so we still get those benefits. One of my favorite secrets, great for pink or purple smoothies, is to bake a bunch of beets and then have them in the freezer ready to go. Then you just drop one in the smoothie and the color you get from it is amazing truly! Happy smoothie making, friends!
