[Recipe] Quick Snack for Family Fun Night – Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie

This is the simplest recipe ever, but there are a couple things you can do to always have a quick, easy, healthy snack around for the family to share.
Prep

  1. Always have a few bags of frozen fruit in the freezer – best advice ever! You can use them in so many healthy quick snacks, they keep forever, and they are already cut up and easy!
  2. Invest in a good blender (Ninja!) – smoothies are easy and you can just sorta throw whatever healthy things you have around into one quickly for a snack, and sneak a serving of veggies in for the kids!

Seriously don’t get hung up on a recipe for smoothies, just keep it healthy, include at least one fruit that is pretty sweet, and think about thinks that usually go together for the most part. See below for a second bonus smoothie recipe, but for this family snack we used:

  • 1.5 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1.5 cups frozen mangos
  • 1.5 cups plain (unsweetened) Greek yogurt

Blend. Yup, its that easy! The juice from the fruits makes it liquid enough (it may help to slightly defrost), and you can add ice if you want a more frozen drink, but it really doesn’t have to be complex!

20160320_204341Add it all to a big family-size cup and some colorful straws (add them to the things to keep on hand – kids love picking them out!), and you have a delicious snack that is quick enough not to disrupt family time but full of vitamins and energy.

Bonus Recipe

Nick sometimes goes all out and mixes all kinds of crazy things to make a whole meal in a smoothie, so just to give you the idea of the types of things you can throw in for a quick meal:

  • 1 Whole Apple (just take off stem, wash, and quarter. Seeds will blend)
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Carrot (after everything you won’t even taste it. Peel and wash and throw in whole!)
  • 1 “squirt” honey
  • 1 “handful” Oatmeal
  • 1 “sploosh” Yogurt
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Protein – either a couple Tbs nuts or Peanut butter, or for a much more healthy and tasty route: Plexus 96

Blend for a huge amount of vitamins, a full meal, and a boost of energy and head out the door in just a few minutes.

10th Day of Plexus: Boost!

What is your 2016 Resolution? Lose a little weight? Boost (in conjunction with Slim) essentially uses the science of thermogenics by boosting your basal metabolic rate (or resting metabolism). Boost blocks the formation of fat in the body and forces the body to use stored fat for energy. It also works as an appetite suppressant. If you’re wanting extra energy and to lose weight, this can definitely help, along with Slim!

9th Day of Plexus: Plexus 96!

I am SO guilty of being out and about close to lunch time, getting hungry and jumping right in to a convenient drive-thru for fast food. Anybody else?! Plexus has a wonderful alternative, call P96, a perfect protein snack on-the-go. P96 is made with high-quality grass-fed whey protein isolate and concentrate to help build lean muscle and to fuel the body’s needs.

8th Day of Plexus: Block!

Who loves to eat sugar and bread, but dislikes feeling bloated, fat and tired after eating them?! You are not alone. Block is a supplement that promotes healthy weight control by blocking starch and table sugar digestion and absorption up to 48%. This also slows the conversion of glucose in our bloodstream to becoming fat, while at the same time promoting sustained energy and reducing fatigue!

7th Day of Plexus: Accelerator+

Accelerator+ can boost metabolism, help with appetite suppression and increase energy. When taken with Plexus Slim, the Accelerator+ helps speed up weight loss or helps people overcome weight plateaus. The combination of ingredients in the two work synergistically to help you lose weight—easy and fast!
Accelerator+ also includes the ingredient 5-HTP, which increases the production of serotonin in your brain and nervous system. Increased Serotonin may improve sleep, anxiety, depression and obesity.
**Not recommended for those with High Blood Pressure, Heart conditions or pregnant or nursing mothers due to the stimulant and natural caffeine.

6th Day of Plexus: Ease Pain Relief!

Over 100 million Americans suffer from discomfort (back problems, muscle tension, joint soreness, headaches) DAILY! This number is huge! Plexus has come up with a supplement that can address the root of the problem: inflammation. Plexus Ease, formerly know as Fast Relief, has an amazing blend of natural ingredients that are great at significantly reducing inflammation without the side effects that NSAIDS or synthetic drugs like narcotics typically have. It’s so encouraging to see so many stories of how these supplements have helped pain sufferers live happier, healthier, and discomfort-free, and even preventing them from having to have a suggested surgery! There is also a fast-acting Ease cream (not pictured here) that many have great results with!
Plexus Nerve (another incredible product) was designed for people with nerve issues. It was developed with a specially formulated combination of vitamins, minerals, herbs and amino acids that can actually help regenerate nerves and reducing symptoms.
Message me or share if you know someone that could benefit from pain relief!

5th Day of Plexus: MegaX

We frequently hear about the benefits of Omega-3’s and how they contribute to brain and heart health. We are encouraged to add fish to our menus at least 3 times weekly or add a Fish Oil supplement…BUT how many people don’t like fish?! How many people don’t like fish burps from the fish oil supplements?! These are common reasons that we, as Americans, don’t consume enough of these ESSENTIAL fatty acids. Plexus has created a PLANT-BASED supplement from the AHIFLOWER plant with not only Omega-3 and 6, but also 9, 5 and 7! These are so great for you and really aid in stress management, relaxation, sleep AND:
Omega-3: important role in brain function and may help fight against cardiovascular disease
Omega-6: antiinflammatory properties
Omega-9: cholesterol, immunity, healthy blood sugar levels
Omega-5: positive effect on weight, cardiovascular health and blood sugar balance.
Omega-7: antioxidant and anti-aging properties, positive effect on healthy weight loss and bowel regularity

4th Day of Plexus: XFactor & XFactor Family Chewables

XFactor is a multivitamin that has a unique aloe vera blend that coats the intestines, helping your body absorb more of the vitamins (studies show greater than 300%!!). Most people can’t tell a difference when they are taking a standard multivitamin, but with XFactor, my hair and nails have been growing like crazy and I haven’t gotten sick at all when my kids have had some nasty viruses. The aloe also helps prevent the stomach upset most people get when taking vitamins. This vitamin also contains New Zealand Blackcurrant, a powerful antioxidant, ridding of free radicals and toxins in your blood. What a perfect vitamin for EVERYONE, especially pregnant and breastfeeding mothers (which provides sufficient vitamins for Mama and babe)!
XFactor Family Chewables are multivitamins, designed for children, without the aloe blend. They are all natural and without added artificial sugar, GMO’s, dyes, etc.!
