The Best Everyday Smoothie


Here it is. Many, many friends have asked me for my husband’s secret smoothie recipe over the years. And today is the day we’ve all a few of us have been waiting for…

The Best Everyday Smoothie Ever - Our family never gets tired of this delicious combination of juice, milk, fresh spinach, and tons of fruit.

“Hey Nathan, can you get up and make your smoothie?”

My husband peered at me through one open eye. “It’s Saturday morning, Rach.”

“Yeah, but you’re a dad, remember? Everybody knows you can’t sleep past 8.”

“Uhhhh,” he moaned, as he threw a pillow over his head.

“Nevermind. I’ll go try to make your smoothie. I want to get some pics before the lighting changes outside.”

20 minutes later…

Muted mockery covered his face and a quiet chuckle escaped as my bed-headed husband took one look at my attempt at his Everyday Smoothie.

“What are you laughing at?!” I demanded.

“You.”

“What about me?”

“You and your puke, purple-beige smoothie attempt.”

(I don’t know…what do you guys think? My smoothie on your left or his on your right?)

The Best Everyday Smoothie

(Yeah, that’s what I thought. Look, between you and me, I never get it right. His is tastier. Much tastier. And a far cry from my “puke, purple-beige” version.)

The Best Everyday Smoothie Ever - Our family never gets tired of this delicious combination of juice, milk, fresh spinach, and tons of fruit.

So, it’s with a very humbled heart, that I publicly dub my husband the official Smoothie Master of Our Household. And I invite you to enjoy his version of The Best Everyday Smoothie we know.
