Cranberry-Spinach-Mango Green Drink

Now that little Ben is seven months old, we are introducing him to big people food. As far as pureed foods go, he loves bananas, blueberries with oatmeal, and mango. However, just like his big brother did, Ben much prefers real food that hasn’t been smooshed up. So, I dutifully feed him little bits of […]


Spinach-Mango Smoothie

Little Vivian is a conundrum.  Unlike most kids, she won’t eat any fruit except apples.  However, she loved salad, broccoli, carrots… Her favorite source of healthy nutrition comes from a green drink I make just about every morning. Loaded with spinach and sweetened with mango and orange, it is a fresh and invigorating way to […]


Spinach and Citrus Green Drink

Ever since Chris gifted me with a fancy blender for my birthday earlier this year, I have been having lots of fun trying out new recipes.  I use the countertop machine almost every day, making quick sorbets, pureeing soups and whirling up smoothies.  A couple months ago I posted a recipe for Maureen’s Green Drink, […]


Maureen’s Green Drink

For my birthday this year, Chris t o t a l l y splurged and bought me the high-end Vita-Mix blender I have dreamed about for years.  I was shocked – shocked, I tell you! – when I opened the box.  Never in a million years did I think we would actually get one.  It […]


Pregnancy Power Smoothie

Now that I am approaching my third trimester, some of the typical pregnancy ailments are starting to strike.  In addition to the exhaustion I’ve felt almost every day since we found out the news back in July, I now have heartburn at night and occasional leg cramps during the day.  Oh, and there are moments […]


Banana-Spinach-Almond Smoothie

A few months ago I mentioned in a post that our blender had broken.  A friend of a friend read it and sent me a message: she no longer needed her blender – would I like it?  I was so delighted with her offer.  Not only would her kind generosity save me a few bucks, […]


Cocoa Berry Smoothie

Thanksgiving is here, and we’re all so excited!  Evie has been learning about the holiday in school, and everyday I try to encourage gratitude in their little hearts.  Its nice to have a day just about being thankful. To counteract the delightful calorie overload headed our way this evening, I mixed up a healthy breakfast […]


Chocolate-Banana-Spinach Smoothie

Most mornings the kids and I start the day with a blueberry-spinach smoothie.  We all love it and it is super healthy, but sometimes I feel like changing the routine a bit.  When we’re not in the mood for homemade pancakes or steel cut oatmeal, I will try a new smoothie recipe.  Yesterday I decided […]


Sweet Potato Breakfast Smoothie – Sweet!!

With the sun rising off Lake Michigan pretty early these days, the kids can’t sleep much past 6:15 am.  Fortunately, our usual Blueberry Spinach Smoothie is an easy and healthy way to start the day.  It is a nice energy boost for all of us. This morning we were out of frozen blueberries – yikes!  […]


Maureen’s Green Starter!

Evie has been fighting a cold for about a week now. While I feel lucky because this is only her second cold/sickness in the first 17 months of her life, I also feel so sad for her. She hates having her nose wiped and she has a bit of a cough — no fun for […]
