Easter Bunny’s Sunday Dinner Smoothie

written by Head Health Nutter April 3, 2010

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday and many people will be celebrating with a festive meal. Did you know the Easter Bunny also celebrates with a Sunday dinner? He sent it to me to share with you!

No, this smoothie recipe doesn’t have a Cadbury egg in it… he leaves those for us. His meal is much more delicious and nutritious.

The Easter bunny makes his Sunday dinner smoothie with carrots (his favourite), as well as some fruits and veggies from which we make our typical Easter dinner desserts, like pumpkin pie and apple pie.

It’ll be the perfect meal to have tomorrow morning: filling (but not enough to ruin dinner), high in nutrition (carrots and pumpkin are high in beta-carotene – vitamin A) and tastes just like pumpkin pie!

Sounds delicious Steph! I like how you add the nutritional value along with the recipes.

By the way I happen to have a Cadbury chocolate easter egg which oozed all over my desk. It was good!
