Smoothies

I've been on a smoothie kick recently. It is fun because there are so many different kinds to make and I feel like it is a great afternoon pick up, that leaves me full. And I love how nutritious they can be with all that fruit and milk and yogurt! Besides, I'm trying really hard to cut back on the full-on baking these days. Two and a half people only need to eat so much flour and sugar before their waistlines start to notice! Don't be fooled though, I will still be making Halloween treats this weekend!

Anyway, so I figured I would snap a picture of the smoothie I made last night. Fresh pineapple, frozen strawberries, yogurt and milk. I also had maraschino cherries on top, but they sunk to the bottom before the picture was taken!
Actually, my most favorite smoothie I've made recently is now my arch enemy because I can't seem to get enough of it...Peanut butter banana! The only thing that stops me is that we don't always have bananas around. But It is 1/2 a frozen banana, 1 T peanut butter (sometimes 2T if I feel crazy), plus 1 C milk and you've got heaven!

We have been on a big smoothie kick here for awhile too. I have been subbing soft tofu and protein powder for yogurt & adding a handful of spinach and no one can tell!

Oooh! Sneaky, I like it! I love the spinach thing, what a great super veggie! I bet it would hide well behind blueberries!
