Healthy Smoothies

Smoothies are such a great treat during the summer, but can be enjoyed almost anytime of year.  I like to incorporate fruits in my smoothies during the hot summer months and warmer vegetable flavors during the fall months.  Smoothies are really simple to make too, with just a blender you can create some of the best tasting and filling drinks you never thought you could. Here are some of my favorite smoothies to blend up and share with my kiddo.


• Apple Veggie Smoothie

4 carrots
2 apples
1/2 cucumber
1 stalk celery
1/2 cup Swiss chard
1 cup ice cubes

Blend together until smooth.



•Cinnamon Pumpkin Smoothie

1/2 cup frozen pumpkin
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1 cup ice cubes

Blend until smooth.

• Vanilla Cantaloupe Smoothie

1 cup milk
1 cup vanilla yogurt
1 cup ice cubes

Blend until smooth.

Eco-Tip:  Add door sweeps to the bottom of exterior doors on around doors that lose heat throughout the winter.  This will help conserve the heat inside the home and in the long run save you a lot of money.  For this and other tips on going green visit, The Earth and Me Go Green.
