Welcome back to the week, and welcome back to the week routine! With summer temperatures still soaring in my little part of the world, this pregnant mama is having a hard time keeping cool. So I try to drink as much water as I can, but one cannot survive on water alone. We are also trying to keep our food cooking on the grill to prevent the house from warming up, but on a monday morning, who’s going to fire up the girl and start cooking bacon? Am I right? So I was looking for something sweet, cold & healthy to make for a quick morning breakfast and after scrounging through my fridge & freezer, I came up with this little beauty. I know it’s simple – but that’s the point. And It only makes one serving… another bonus for a quick monday morning grab and dash breakfast. Plus you can get the kids to help you in the kitchen – always a bonus for me since my girls love to ‘cook’. Today let’s talk about the Peach & Blueberry Smoothie.
Single serving smoothies are great for a quick, on the go snack, and can pack a punch in nutrients – just ask Deepkia from Easy Baby Meals with her homemade shake (yes… that’s a hint/#sneakpeak with what’s coming to Fuchsia Freezer this week ;)). You can easily double or triple this recipe for more if you’re not alone.
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1 cup frozen peach slices
- 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt (I used dairy-free vanilla flavoured coconut yogurt)
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- splash of coconut water
Note: I find the yogurt I use can be quite thick, so I tend to add a splash of coconut water to help get everything to the consistency I want. Skip this if you use a creamier yogurt.
- Place everything in a blender, and blend until the consistency you desire. Top with a few fresh berries and serve in your favourite glass or mason jar!
I know, simple right? I like to add/sneak in the chia seeds for a little nutritional boost since this will typically be a meal for myself (or part of a meal for my girls). Since todays recipe was so simple to write about and make, I thought I would share more with you about whats coming up on the blog…
My Foodie Mamas friends will be stopping by and sharing their own recipes with you, plus you will get to know each one separately. Yes, at the end of the month we will have our recipe monthly round up with our featured ingredient as well, but this will give you a chance to meet each one individually. This awesome Foodie Mama will share with you a fantastic recipe that is (in my opinion) a must-try at home! Don’t believe me? Give them a try at home! You won’t be disappointed. If you haven’t had a chance yet, see Kim’s (from Feed Me, Seymour) take on the Rice Krispy Treat!
The fun doesn’t stop there! Starting at the end of the week I have a new 3-part series coming. What should you expect? Well, it goes a little something like this…
All those delicious meals will be featured here starting this coming week. I’m so excited for this to start, and I hope you will join in the fun.
On that note, I will be leaving you for the day… but rest assured you will be get more details coming on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram so make sure you follow along and see what’s happening in my kitchen! Thank you so much, once again, for stopping in. I know I say it all the time, but since I’ve started this blogging journey, it has been an even more exciting experience knowing you’re following along the way. I just feel so lucky to be able to do this with you! Have a great Monday and we will be chatting soon!
