The Best Everyday Smoothie Ever

The Best Everyday Smoothie {Freezer Meal}


Here it is. Many, many friends over the years have asked me for my husband’s secret smoothie recipe. 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?)

(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.)

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.

    Finally got around to making this and it’s so yummy! Even my hubby likes it! I changed it from Greek to regular light yogurt and grapefruit juice instead of orange juice (just my preference) and it turned out great! Perfect healthy pregnancy snack for me. 🙂
