Party Time - Green Smoothie

It's the 7th and final day of our Green Smoothie Challenge!
Katherine, Ashlee, Sally, Jezz, Hope and I all hope you've had fun getting your green on!
Tomorrow is the final link up. Have you looked over Wednesday and Fridays? I'm so tempted to try every green smoothie creation! Each time I make one of these green smoothies I'm still expecting to taste the green and just doesn't happen. Maybe because I overload the blender with every fruit in the house or maybe it's just meant to be. But I'm loving the fact that my smoothies now offer a pow of both veggies and fruits.

Party Time Green Smoothie

for the first smoothie...                          for the second smoothie...
handfuls of spinach                                 cup of sliced strawberries
handful of kale                                           cup of blueberries and blackberries
cup of frozen pineapple                         sliced kiwi
sliced frozen banana                               mango greek yogurt
mango                                                          5 spinach icecubes
1/4 cup Coconut Milk                            1/4 cup Coconut Milk

Blend each smoothie separately then combine! This makes plenty so expect leftovers!

We had fun with this colorful smoothie. It's like a little party in a cup! My little one and I played with layering the veggie and fruit goodness into our glasses. His being a plastic Mickey Mouse tumbler :) We made more than enough and used the leftovers for popsicles! Those will be the perfect bedtime treat for little man tonight. He really does get all kinds of excited when it's time to make a smoothie. He grabs his step stool and gets himself up to the counter ready to press the button on the blender. He imitates the sounds he hears and when it's ready he hops down, cup in hands and literally jumps up and down squealing for his fill up. It's really too cute and makes me happy that he's as excited about a green smoothie as he is over a new truck or handful of M&M's.

Come back Monday for the final link up!
Share a recipe and your thoughts on the challenge on with us. Has it become a habit for you?

Do you use full-fat coconut milk?? I am trying to lose weight, so it makes me nervous to use the full fat version.

Hey Kristine! My husband wants me to start making smoothies for him for breakfast. I was wondering if you had any good ideas for making and storing them for the week...

I just found your blog on the Collective Link up. I love everything I see! Your recipes look delicious, and I felt an instant connection to your blog because I also love running and enjoy competing in a variety of races. You set a great example of how mom's can be healthy and fit!

Okay girly...well I made one. Only one, but I liked it and I'm chopping spinach for my spinach ice cubes as I type (well sorta). AND I made my up my week's worth of frozen fruit servings. Thanks for all the inspiration!!!

Vanessa said...

I didn't do the challenge, but green smoothies were already a habit for my family :) This party time smoothie is very cute, though!!!

I found your blog on The Collective and just started following on GFC. That smoothie is so pretty! I never would have thought of layering it.
