You might be wondering why I have been posting so many smoothie recipes lately. Smoothies have quickly become a breakfast staple for busy families trying to get everyone out the door and on their way for the day. They are also very popular for the fitness crowd. You can pack a lot of nutrition into a smoothie with very little effort and minimal muss. It's a way of getting the nutrition of vegetables like spinach without the taste of spinach. Surprisingly, spinach is one of those vegetables that you can't even taste in a smoothie! Most smoothies will keep nicely in the refrigerator for the day as well so any left overs can be used as an easy, nutritious after school snack. At any rate, I am experimenting with smoothies for those reasons but I also have another goal in mind that I will share with you shortly.
