Smoothies Smoothies Smoothies

I love smoothies! Ever since I have been pregnant I can’t seem to get enough of them. They are fun, filling and easy to drink on my drive to work. Plus, they are a great way to mainline vitamins and nutrients! Every morning I whip one up with hemp protein powder, flax oil, soy yogurt, assorted frozen fruits and some walnuts for good measure. This is an easy way to make sure I am getting my protein, probiotics and omga-3s all in one.

I was going to my local health food store every morning and buying a smoothie but they started to add up at almost 6 bucks a pop. So I decided it was time to get a blender to call my own. However, at this point in my life I was not ready to invest in a Vitamix(370$ plus!). So I picked up the Oster BLSTPB-WBL My Blend 250-Watt Blender on amazon for under 30 bucks. It is a great little blender that makes your smoothies right in your to go cup. It really is a neat little machine.

You can find frozen fruit anywhere but the my favorites so far have been the Berry Medley and the Organic Tropical Fruit Blend from Trader Joes. I also really like the AÇAÍ Smoothie Pack from Safeway.

Here are a couple recipes to get you started:
