Strawberry, Kiwi & Banana Smoothie


We are LOVING our new Vitamix and make some sort of smoothie every day. We each have our favorite way of making them too. Don and I prefer ours made with fresh fruit, spinach, water and some flaxseed meal. Rachael will try just about any combination I make and requested kale once, but I don't think she cared for it that much (like mother and daughter I guess!). And Gab prefers her smoothies made with fruit, milk and ice like this Strawberry, Kiwi and Banana Smoothie she made for herself recently. Smoothies are a great way to start your day, especially if you're like us and don't have time to sit down for a complete breakfast during the school week. She takes it with her to the bus stop and before the bus comes, she's had a healthy start to her day which helps her concentrate better at school. ~Enjoy!
