Chocolate Pumpkin Smoothie

Um, HELLO! Need I say more?…

Smoothie tip: If you’re an avid smoothie drinker like myself, you can pour your milk of choice into ice cube trays and freeze. Once frozen, you can remove the cubes and store in a tightly sealed bag in the freezer until ready to use. This method will result in a cold smoothie without the watered down taste from using ice.

5 Days of Smoothies

Smoothies are definitely a staple in our house. They’re easy to make, totally customizable, can pack a heck of a nutritional punch (if made right), and delicious (duh!).

Complete Start Breakfast Shake

I feel pretty fortunate to say that I, for the most part, have always been a morning person. I mean don’t get me wrong, sleeping in isn’t so bad either but now as a mom I have a living alarm clock so my sleeping in is very limited. My mornings are very routine…wake up at the same time, drink a big glass of water, make a cup of coffee, get my daughter up, feed her, put her down for a nap, have the rest of my coffee with breakfast, check emails, then get myself ready for the day. I mean it’s basically that in a nutshell, every single day. And I like it. I enjoy having a routine and being able to look forward to my little bit of down time while I have my breakfast and check my inbox, read up on world events and/or poke around the internet for some shopping deals. That all being said, I still enjoy keeping it simple, specifically speaking for breakfast. Although I do often have the time to make eggs and avocado I also enjoy my smoothies…but hate the mess! Having to clean pans, wash out the blender, measuring cups, etc. can be a hassle and this cuts into my little bit of me time. So, that’s where these Complete Start Breakfast Shakes have been like a dream come true!  Continue reading “Complete Start Breakfast Shake”
