Apricot Chicken with Farm Fresh Salad

Summer and Fall are the best time to enjoy locally grown fruits and veggies, so what better time to get creative with some delcious and good for you smoothies?

The SnoCo Kid and I set out to create four receipes using local products and produce that we had on hand. Yes, you’re only seeing three, one wasn’t a winner. Blueberry and lemon may be a good pancake and dessert combo, but not a smoothie one. Lesson learned.

The rest of the flavors we created were a hit though. That may or may not be because I added honey to all of them. Honey is like my hot sauce, I put it on everything. What can I say, I love the flavor.

Best parts they were simple and quick to make, they got my kids up and involved in doing something that didn’t involve a screen, and they were delicious and good for us. I see quite a bit of yogurt buying and smoothie making in their future. When they are obsessed about something, they go all out. Probably get that from me.

Anyways … I hope you enjoy our smoothies!
