Thirsty Thursday

Just yesterday, I heard the phrase, Thirsty Thursday.  Boy did that bring me back to my college days and what Thirsty Thursday really meant.  I won't go in to that.....no one real wants to hear about my wild and crazy days...right!! :)

Now, years later I am putting new meaning to the phrase. My daughter, who is a very picky eater, will eat, well drink, smoothies.  I typically think of these as summer time treats but I if she will drink them...why not make them anytime!  With no school today it seems like the perfect day to experiment.

I found some great recipes that will sure to be a hit!

Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie  



INGREDIENTS
3 peeled kiwi
1 cup frozen banana slices
3/4 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup frozen strawberries

Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smoothie consistency is met.

Carrot Smoothie


INGREDIENTS

12 ounces of fresh carrot juice
2 cups of vanilla yogurt
1/2 of a peeled lime
3 baby carrots
8 ice cubes

Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smoothie consistency is met.


Chocolate Strawberry Smoothie


INGREDIENTS

8 oz. chocolate milk
4 oz. strawberries
4 oz. bananas
A couple of ice cubes
Garnish with mint

Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smoothie consistency is met.

Find all recipes and photos here.

The Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie sure to be a winner but I am not sure how the Carrot Smoothie will go over but carrots are her favorite vegetable!  It is worth a try I say!  And I have no doubt the Chocolate Smoothie will be a hit...who wouldn't like that one!

Have a great Thursday!
