building up immune systems around here

I kind of think the little stomach bug was a fluke thing.  We did just switch the little fella from his carrier car seat to a big car seat.  Meaning- he now sits in a shopping cart which also means he sucks on the shopping cart- yuck!  That's a good way to catch something.

Just in case I am building up the immune systems around here and we had one of our favorite vitamins- fresh fruit and vegs in a smoothie.  This time color change...

 Purple Smoothie

2 cups water
lots of spinach
mixed berries
1/4 of a lemon peel and all (this will have a strong taste)
1 banana
appx. 1 cup of frozen strawberries

The amounts aren't exact.  Our smoothies taste different every time.  Adjust to your blender size and taste buds.  Make sure to get the first four ingredients blended real well- I have a whole juice button that I use.  The whole point is to get a good dose of vitamins in you!

It was a hit can you tell?
