Note: If you make a lot of pancakes and French toast at your house, I highly recommend buying an electric griddle. Breakfast has never been easier!
Smoothies & Smoothie Bowls
Everyone loves a good smoothie! Smoothies are refreshing, light, and the perfect way to sneak in your favorite protein powders and superfoods. I give my kids smoothies nearly every morning and they have no idea all the wholesome and healthy foods they are drinking.
Here are a few of my favorite smoothie recipes:
- Blueberry Coconut Smoothie Bowl
- Chocolate Hazelnut Smoothie Bowl
- Tropical Smoothie Bowl
- 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Shake
- Tropical Green Smoothie
- 5-Minute Acai Bowl
Note: If you make a lot of smoothies at your house, having a good blender is a must.
