Here's an audio clip so you can listen to the Mom Tip while you put on your makeup!
Hi, I’m Regan Barnes from Momivate, and this is your two-minute Mom Tip empowering you to YUMMIFY your mothering experience.
That’s right -- today’s tip is yummy! It’s one of my favorite smoothie recipes called Cuppa Reese’s...
It doesn't actually have any Reese's in it, so maybe I'm breaking some kind of trademark laws... But it does have chocolate and peanut butter in it, so really I am honoring the genius of the Reese's people by naming this concoction after their incredible delectable combination of ingredients.
Two things separate my recipe from the Reese's product:
First of all: It's drinkable!
Secondly: It's good for me! And for You!
The first ingredient in all my smoothies is spinach… I hide it in my food to help myself get more of this superfood goodness and (cross my heart) I do not notice the flavor when mixed with all the other yummies…
So, stuff a handful or two of fresh spinach (so we're strong to the finish!) down into the bottom of the blender. Here’s a hint: you can buy fresh spinach and, after washing it, throw it in the freezer since you’re just going to blend it up into a nice cold smoothie anyway!
Next throw in some frozen Banana Chunks -- about 1 and 1/2 banana's-worth
Add 1/4 cup each of cocoa powder and peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
Now add your favorite milk (I like almond or coconut) -- maybe half a cup? Just enough to blend all these ingredients into creamy yummyness.
Gather the kids around for Cuppa Reese’s and they’ll much prefer this method of getting their spinach in their system!
Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? Share it on our Momivate facebook page! If you’re new to the world of smoothies, add spinach to your grocery list and try it out sometime this week, then share if this practice elevates your mothering!
