We love smoothies in our house. They are a great way to pack lots of nutrition into one little cup. I love that I can put fruits and vegetables into a cup and have a drink that looks quite a bit like a milkshake. Smoothies make for great breakfasts or nutrition packed snacks anytime. I even make them as desserts. I have a bit of a sweet tooth and smoothies are one of the ways I fight it.
I’ve found that smoothies are a great way to use up my fruit and vegetables as they are getting riper than my family likes to eat them. I pay a little extra for organic fruits and vegetables……I can’t afford to throw them away. Smoothies are a great way to reduce waste and turn it into delicious snacks. I also love that frozen fruit is available in big bags for a great price. I like my smoothies extra thick……….kind of like ice cream so I always have fruit in the freezer. You should see my frozen banana bag. They are also quick and easy to make so they are perfect for getting the kids involved in the kitchen.
Since, I love smoothies so much, I figured many of my readers probably do as well. We had so much fun with this last year that I have decided to host a Smoothie Competition again this year. Some of my favorite bloggers will be sharing their favorite smoothie recipes. You and I can collect all of these smoothie recipes and give them a try. The winner will be the blogger who collects the most comments at the end of their feature. So……if you really like a blogger and their particular recipe, make sure you make a comment about it at the bottom of their feature.
The competition starts tomorrow, so make sure you check back each day this week for a new recipe. I’m really excited to talk smoothies all week. If you have a favorite recipe, I would love for you to share it here in the comments or on my Facebook page.
Make sure you get all of your friends to check out recipes from some of my favorite bloggers. The winner of the competition will be determined by the number of comments that are left at the bottom of the post. The winner of the competition will be featured in my sidebar.
This is a big deal for these bloggers so make sure you show them so love!
I love competition. I can’t wait to get started!
Do you have frozen fruit ready to go for smoothies? Do you follow a recipe or just dump ingredients into a blender? What is your favorite blender brand? I need a new one!
