This household loves smoothies!!!! My husband’s affectionate nickname for me (especially when he wants a smoothie, hmmmmm :) ) is the “Smoothie Queen”. Last Christmas I was incredibly blessed (and spoiled!) with a Vita-Mix blender to help support our habit (our daily smoothie habit, that is). I’ll try to share some of my favorite recipes as I think of them or make them.

Raspberry Pina Colada

1 cup plain yogurt

1/2- 1 cup of coconut milk (depends how much you like coconut) or 1-2 large Tbsp of coconut paste

3/4 cup frozen raspberries

1 cup frozen pineapple

2 frozen bananas (broken into 1/4 pieces, they blend easier)- my daughter added an extra 1/2 banana today and it was fine

honey to taste (1-2 Tbsp.) or Stevia (2-3 packets?)

enough water to get it all moving- probably at least a cup, depends on your blender

any superfoods you want your family to have (ie. flax oil, bee pollen, green foods, ground flax seed, ground sesame or pumpkin seed, etc.- there are so many to choose from! I don’t use greens in this smoothie because it ruins the nice color)

Serves 2-3 (my husband and I have a good sized glass, and my almost 3 year old has only a little bit less than us- the 5 mth old gets it vicariously through his milkies)
