Green Smoothies

Tuesday, September 13, 2011
Lincoln is waaaaay into samoovies (smoothies).  We make them for lunch at least 3 times a week.

The process:

  • Lincoln wakes up from nap saying, "Mama, let's go make a samoovie! Need all da inbredients!"
  • We run to the kitchen and get out the blender and Lincoln's stool.

  • We add all our "inbredients":  this particular one has frozen strawberries, pineapple, and mango, blueberries, raspberries, spinach, a tiny bit of lemonade, and water.

  • Blend it up!  It's gonna be a widdle woud! (Lincoln runs into the other room at this point while I blend).

  •  Enjoy your samoovie!

(Note:  our blender is a Kitchen Aid 5 speed.  It works great for what we blend--we do have tiny flecks of spinach, though.  Doesn't bother us, but just fyi.  It was either tiny flecks of spinach or spend Lincoln's college savings on a Vitamix.  Flecks it is!)


  1. I need to incorporate more smoothies into our lives. They look so good.

  2. how cute! way to go, mama, on incorporating healthy, yummy food! I need to take note...

  3. I know there are women out there who go to sleep dreaming of prada bags and gucci shoes but somehow I only dream of vitamin blenders;)
