Bring the family together with our Rice Pudding Smoothie Recipe
Rice Pudding Smoothie is sooo refreshing during these hot and fantastic summer months!! I don’t know many people who don’t absolutely love rice pudding. This is such a fun twist to rice pudding that you have got to try! When I was a live in nanny, the dad would make rice pudding for all of us. It was such a fun way for us to bond at night, after a long day of everyone being out of the house. Family time is the most important thing to me! I love to bond and connect over a good smoothie, treat, or meal!

What’s the difference between a smoothie and a shake?
Most people love smoothies and shakes, some don’t really know the differences between them because after all the both cold and refreshing, drinkable, and delicious! In my opinion it all comes down to ice cream. . . yes, it’s true! Smoothies do not have ice cream, candy bars, cookies or pies in them. Smoothies are filled with healthy for you ingredients like fruit and veggies and healthier forms of protein and dairy.
Don’t get me wrong. . . I enjoy them both as probably most of you do too! I just enjoy smoothies on a more regular basis and shakes wellllll they’re a more special occasion or dessert kind of treat.
- Invest in a heavy duty blender; I’ve used a Blend Tec for well over a century now and I love it! It’s powerful enough to blend frozen fruit and vegetables smooth, smooth, smooth!
- I prefer using frozen fruits and vegetables in my smoothies so they have a thicker consistency.
- Freeze extra fruits and vegetables as they are just beginning to turn over-ripe; I use gallon plastic zip top freezer bags to toss them in.
- Freeze fresh produce to use later- I find they last just fine for up to 4 weeks. ie: spinach or mixed salad greens, baby carrots, cucumbers, banana’s broken into four pieces, sliced/cored apples and pears, extra berries, peeled/segmented oranges and clementines, grapes, and the list goes on!
- Extra nutrient add in’s are always good try adding: vanilla and chocolate protein powders, dry oats, a small handful of nuts, peanut butter, flavored yogurt or kefir, and more.
Super food add in’s: gogi berries, coconut oil, avocado, acai or cacoa powder, chia or hemp or flax seeds, etc!

We are so happy it’s Fit Fri-YAY!!!
Summer is in full swing at my house. This was the first week of no school, sleeping in, lots of friends, and lots of time by the pool. That also means it has been a week of my trying to squeeze in workouts around everyone else’s stuff. My friends with older kids or no kids are off hiking on these summer days and enjoying the season, I have to admit I get a bit jealous as I turn back to wrestling by two year old who has perfect the body slam.
Many of my mornings are busy teaching classes and training clients, this means I don’t have the option to workout out until nap time many days. I have discovered that my five year old thinks Tabata is fun and loves to workout with me, especially if I let him pick some moves. So today we are doing a mid friendly Tabata workout. Kid friendly equates to sticking with the basics and a lot of jumping, he loves to jump.
With warm up and cool down this is a great 30 minute workout. I don’t expect my little guy to hang with me the whole time, but I picked all things that he can do and he hangs with me most of the time. Our warm up and cool down often involve a walk around the block, again I picked something that totally works for his five year old mind.
Rice Pudding Smoothie is a fun alternative on Rice Pudding for summer months!
