Mom Fuel: Honey Crisp and Green Apple Smoothie

The last of the garden spinach.  Frozen spinach is fine too, without any loss of nutrients.

You’ll need a powerful blender to smoothify these beauties:  1/3 Beet and Apples

Chia Seeds for protein

Homegrown or store bought Carrots, peeled.  Add a Banana and an Avocado for that needed and essential fat.  Avocado makes for a very smooth smoothie.

Peach and Nectarine – get it in before winter comes and they are hard to find.

It’s apple season!  Honey Crisp and Granny Smith are my favorites for smoothies, but all apples make for exceptional flavor.

I don’t like the taste of beets by themselves, but I love the color.  It helps my children drink it.

Makes 6 servings, two for adults and four darling children.

Drink up!
