It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
Am I the only one that dreads back to school time just a tad? You know, we have to get on a schedule and my older kids have to go back to college. That always tends to make this momma a tad sad.
But I will tell you, mornings are my favorite time and I love spending time with my two younger guys before school starts. It is such a great time of day and it sets the tone for the day. One of our favorite things to do is to make smoothies. Reis is the king of smoothies at our house and this one is one of his favorite masterpieces.
The best part is that when we enjoy it in the morning, we pack it with fruit BUT when we enjoy it as an after school snack — Oh Yeah — we add some chocolate chips. It is amazing either way and the best part is that we love using seasonal fruit whenever we can. This Reisipe is so good with blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, bananas and almost any fruit that can be thrown into a blended. Get those kids loving fresh fruits that are delicious and nutritious!
Find the flavor that your family loves and whip up a smoothie to get your kids excited for the new school year!
