Nectarine Green Smoothie

I’ve been loving smoothies lately. ¬†I make a large batch in the morning, and keep them on hand for those times Arren just refuse to be put down, which happen quite often. ¬†Arren just loves his mommy’s bony arms. ¬†During those times its extremely difficult to even try to make something to eat, and I’m still learning how to eat with one hand while holding a growing baby with a floppy head with the other, its not as easy as you would think!

Smoothies have become my go to meal replacement, I keep telling myself that it wont be like this for long and soon he wont need me as much anymore so right now I’m taking the cuddles when I can get them and just really enjoying this time. ¬†These smoothies really give me that extra boost to be the best mother to him I can possibly be.

This is my go to smoothie recipe, the sweetness of the nectarines and the tangy-ness of the lemons make this a sweet and sour treat that I just can’t get enough of. ¬†Filled with all that good for you ingredients that keep me going while breastfeeding, and squat bouncing with a baby. ¬†The best workout I’ve ever had has been having a baby. ¬†I’ve really started getting creative with my bounces, ¬†Arren really enjoys all the strange bounces. ¬†What can I say I apparently make them weird, but I make a damn delicious smoothie too!
