smoothie recipes #1

We are loving the new Nutribullet! I stocked up on smoothie ingredients and found some new recipes on are a few we tried this week:

Blueberry Mango Smoothie

1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 banana (frozen)
1/2 cup fresh mango
1/4 of a lemon (peeled)
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup water
drizzle of honey

Green Smoothie
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup fresh pineapple
1/2 tangerine
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tsp. chia seeds

(I froze the rest of the pineapple, I think this smoothie would have been even better/colder with frozen pineapple in it).
Aloha Pineapple Smoothie
 1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
1/2 banana
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1 cup ice
(this one was a little thicker because all the fruits were frozen +ice added)
Prep Ahead: I have lots of smoothie recipes that call for kale. I saw this idea for freezing kale so it won't ruin before using it all. Blend in Nutribullet (may need to add a little water), then pour into muffin cups and freeze. Once frozen, pop out and put in zipoc bags.
Great idea!
