...What's for Breakie?...

I'm not sure when we started calling Breakfast 'Breakie'...I guess when Scout was little...

...but I still ask him before bed what he wants for 'Breakie'...silly I know...

...and his choices range from applesauce and oatmeal to chocolate chip waffles (usually only on the weekend)...

...but I often throw in a smoothie instead of his regular orange juice...

...this one has two oranges about a cup of raspberries (not his first choice because of the seeds - but we were out of strawberries)...and a handful of frozen spinach...

...just blend it all up - you can add a little bit of orange juice or water if it's too thick and a couple of spoonfuls of ground flax seeds is good too...

...and it makes plenty of delicious smoothie to get both our mornings off to a great start...

  2. What a great idea! I've been looking for some good liquid "breakie" ideas for me. The girls can digest anything at 6:30, but I cannot! I need something easier on the tummy at that hour. Greg is really into spinach at breakfast, so I always have those ingredients on hand.

  5. Genius move sneaking in the spinach. Although I know Scout is old enough to know it is there, my little ones wouldn't pick up on that yet. Looks yummy!

  9. I like smoothies and I've been known to add a can of fruit (sometimes in syrup but that's between you, me and the blog reading world.

    I would never have thought of adding spinach, a good idea.

  10. Looks delicious. I love flax seed in waffles and smoothies. I also like tofu in smoothies, on occasion, but I do have to be in the mood for that.
