Blueberry Breakfast

  Did you know one serving of blueberries contains almost 25% of your daily requirement of vitamin C? Vitamin C is necessary for growth and development of tissues and promotes wound healing.

Smoothie Breakfast Bowl

A smoothie bowl is a fun way to change up your traditional smoothie and make it feel more like a hearty meal. I like to make my smoothies a bit thicker for this.

Smoothie Pops

Nothing like a healthy treat to cool off on a hot day! Make your own Popsicles from your favorite smoothies!   I poured a raspberry/strawberry smoothie into the Popsicle mold about half way, then set it in the freezer for about 35-45 minutes so it has time to freeze and set. Then make an orange banana smoothie and poured that into the Popsicle mold to fill it the rest of the way. Pop it back into the freezer for a few hours and you have yourself, colorful, healthy, delicious Popsicles that are perfect for a warm summer day!
