Drink Your Veggies

I love using both chia seeds and frozen banana chunks in smoothies. Because then you don’t need to add ice to the smoothies, which can melt and water them down. Plus chia seeds are a super food and add protein and fiber.

I’ve shared many of my favorite recipes that contain both, including Mixed Berry Banana Chia Seed Smoothies, Apple Banana Chia Seed Smoothies and Peach Banana Chia Seed Smoothies. Today, I have another favorite smoothie recipe to share, one that I make all the time, these delicious, creamy Spinach Banana Chia Seed Smoothies.


Each of these smoothies contains a full serving of spinach. Despite that, they don’t have a strong spinach flavor, rather the banana comes through along with a hint of vanilla from the soy milk. So, these smoothies are a delicious way to drink your veggies.

Moving Into Our New House and Unpacking

I mentioned that we moved from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania earlier this summer in late June. We first spent about a month in corporate housing. Then, about two and a half weeks ago, in early August, we were able to move into our new house.

We had over two hundred boxes to unpack. Since moving in, I’ve spent a good chunk of every day unpacking boxes, and figuring out where to put everything in an organized manner.

It is a lot of work, especially with three young kids running around. One of these vitamin-packed Spinach Banana Chia Seed Smoothies is an easy, healthy breakfast and certainly a great way to get fueled up for a day of unpacking and organizing.

If you can’t use the whole batch of smoothies right away, store the remainder in the refrigerator. The smoothies will keep well, and stay thick and creamy, for a few days.

    I’ve made so many variations of smoothies and I agree that you don’t need ice. Frozen fruit blends so much better! Great flavors and very filling with the chia!
