The girls have already started begging for summer time treats, sooo….
I washed up our popsicle molds
and started making our first big batch of smoothie goodness. I purchased frozen strawberries, pineapple, and peaches. Fresh bananas and spinach (or whatever dark leafy green I have on hand). We already had blueberries from a farm and figs from the neighbors. Figs sweeten smoothies oh so nicely!
I had the girls gather everything and start loading the freezer bags. We don’t measure or care what goes in each. All are different.
The Violinist said, “Don’t just mix them up! One time you make them really good, the next time you make them really weird.” Hurumph…I never make anything weird.
Pea #2 does not like strawberries in her smoothies, but she will eat them frozen or fresh by the bushel full. I can’t figure it out. To make her happy, we left out the strawberries in one bag.
After they are stuffed. They are placed in the freezer. When the girls yell, “HEY MOM! Can we have a smoothie?” I say, “NO!”. LOL Just Kidding. Sort of. I yell back, “SURE! Grab a bag.”
I add Vanilla or Strawberry Yogurt or milk to the blender first, then add ground flax seed, then the frozen fruit, and sometimes honey. Whirl it up! I always end up making a huge batch, so the leftovers go into the popsicle molds for another day’s yummy goodness.
