Morning Berry Smoothie

I love making smoothies.  This recipe is for an average morning smoothie that is healthy, delicious, and great for your kids as well.  Carter enjoys morning smoothies with me now and I love it!  I’d also like to point out the stainless steel straw in my smoothie picture.  I really enjoy using these straws because they are not only way better for the environment, but they are also easy to clean and re-use whenever you need a straw.  Here is the link to my Norwex business site if you would like to order your own!:


Something I have learned when it comes to making smoothies, is you need to follow some type of recipe.  It’s not just throwing a bunch of ingredients into the blender and hoping it tastes good, because that can be a waste!  It can also make the smoothie not as healthy as it should be.  This recipe below is super simple, and I really hope you enjoy it as much as we do!


  • 1 handful of fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1 cup almond milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • 1/2 of a medium avocado (I like to keep a few avocados in the refrigerator especially for smoothies!)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender, and mix up until desired consistency.  If it is too thick, feel free to add a little water to it.

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my Lifestyle Blog! Thank you so much for coming to my site to learn a little more about me and our family. I am 29 years old, (oh my goodness almost 30...), and have been married to my amazing husband, Jeff, for five years. I am also a mom! Carter James is our adorable, little blondie who is three, and Payton Jeanne is our baby girl who just turned one this past July. Bella is our yellow lab, and Chuckles is our cat. Of course I had to mention the fur babies because I'm sure they will come up in this blog at some point. I've been wanting to start a blog for quite some time now, and I think God finally gave me the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed writing, and while this is new to me, I'd love to share a little more about my life with you. My hope is for you to read this blog and feel like you're having normal conversation with me, so feel free to ask questions and make comments! I look forward to sharing our former NFL family life, mommy tips, recipes, favorite bible verses, and more. Looking forward to sharing the next play with you!
