thirsty thursday!

so long gone are the days of hanging out on thirsty thursday!
i can now live vicariously thru my lil peanut
whom, i think may be
enjoying more of her share of thirsty thursdays, fridays AND
i love her honesty, but yikes. it scares me to think that my lil peanut is out there
in the world making life decisions...
lol...ok, maybe not life decisions....
but even if it's deciding to
eat or not eat pop tarts for dinner....
you see where i am going...
but that's what college kids do, right?!

so in honor of thirsty thursday i wanted to share a few healthy smoothie recipes!

red, white and blue fruit smoothie


1/2 large banana, cut into pieces and frozen
2 large fresh strawberries, rinsed and sliced
1/4 cup blueberries
1/2 cup milk (i use skim....just sayin....)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons vanilla yogurt
2 ice cubes


Place the banana pieces, strawberries, blueberries, milk, vanilla extract, yogurt, and ice cubes in a blender. Blend until smooth.

drink it up! sooo tasty!

 green smoothie! (aka. the green monster!)


1 banana, thickly sliced, frozen
2 cups chopped kale
1 tablespoon flax seed meal (optional)
1 tablespoon coconut oil (optional)
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup orange juice (again, i use the lightened up version!)


Place the banana, kale, flax seed meal, and coconut oil into a blender, pour in the milk and orange juice. Cover, and puree until smooth; serve.


and lastly for all you chocolate yuppy guppies.....

chocolate/banana smoothie...heaven...


1 banana
1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
1 cup milk
1 cup crushed ice


In a blender, combine banana, chocolate syrup, milk and crushed ice. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.
