Healthy Tropical Smoothie

This Healthy Tropical Smoothie is quick and easy and we gobble it up. It also has no sugar added and happens to be dairy free. You can’t go wrong when you are blending together fruit and ice. And here’s a tip – I love to throw any extra smoothie into my popsicles molds so that we can enjoy it the next day, frozen!

A few of my favorite smoothies recipes are: Orange Pineapple Banana Smoothie, Healthy Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie and Sour Cherry and Pomegranate Detox Smoothie.

Quick and Easy Tropical Smoothie

Summer is almost over, and the end of this summer has been something I’ve been dreading for years. My oldest is going to Kindergarten. Not just Kindergarten but ALL DAY Kindergarten! I knew this time would come whether I was ready of not, and now that it is here I’m not sure how ready a momma can be for such life changes. Her dad works from home, I stay at home, her brothers are at home. We are homebodies and we quiet like it that way. Sending her somewhere else for 6.5 hours a day sounds unbearable.

The only consolation I have is the fact that I think she’s going to love it. Living in the middle of no where has its perks… she only has 16 kids in her whole class (her whole grade really, there is only one class!) and 12 of the 16 are little girls! I think she’s going to love learning and play and reading. So as unexcited as I am for myself and my missing her, I’m so excited for her and her new opportunities to learn and grow and shine.

So all you seasoned Moms who have sent your babies off into the wide wide world. How did you live through it?

I think I’ll have to come home that morning and make me a happy vibrant tropical smoothie to drown my sorrows in 🙂 Then I’ll have to make another to welcome her back home after her first day! This will be an awesome after school snack.

How much ice do I add to smoothies?

That depends on how sweet you want your smoothie. If the mixture is too sweet for you add more ice and process again. I’ll add ice until I like the sweetness because the ice dilutes it each time you add more without effecting the texture of the smoothie.

What should I do if my smoothie is too thick?

If your smoothie is too thick, simply thin it by adding a bit of any liquid.

Do you have to use frozen fruit for smoothies?

You can definitely use fresh fruit to make your smoothies. Smoothies are a great way to add in fruits and vegetables to your diet, so be creative. However, I often like to use frozen fruit because it adds to the thick texture I like in smoothies.

It was really hard at first. I missed her like crazy, but I found that the day went really quickly and I loved the after school routine. I loved coming up with healthy and fun after school snacks like you posted. I also loved that I got to be involved with her school work and helping her learn. I helped in the classroom as often as possible, (which you helped me do –remember watching my little terrors 😉 ). It helped me be a part of something that I felt left out of. Then watching her get better and better was so rewarding. Now that she can go in and read to her brother and sister it is even better 😉 I guess I just decided that the pros outweighed the cons. Also after my first summer I am more than ready to send her back. She seems to be much happier when she has something to engage her mind all day. I have tried with all sorts of different activities like crafting and trips and park days and play dates but it just hasn’t been the same as when she is in school. She is also so excited to go back that she is counting down the days. One other thing that I never expected is that when Makayla is around she s definitely the oldest and even though we all love being together and we all play together really well, it was really nice for Emma to get to be the “oldest” in the house for a few hours each.

i agree- helping out in the classroom is great! you get to know the teacher, the other kids, how the classroom runs, who is at the same level w/reading, etc. I went once a week and LOVED it!
