Vanilla Bean and Mint Layered Smoothie #StonyfieldBlogger

Vanilla bean and mint smoothie is a refreshing and fun layered drink. Flecks of vanilla bean float in one layer while mint combines with spinach for a beautiful green layer.

Thank you Stonyfield and Walmart for sponsoring this post.

Toddler LnC and I usually have a smoothie every day, and recently I have been wanting to play around with different fruits and vegetables, so we have a variety. A layered smoothie is not only pretty, but a great way to have different flavors.

Green smoothies are great for adding extra veggie goodness to your smoothies. Sometimes the toddler will drink a green smoothie, but sometimes I have to camouflage it, and mint seems to be a new favorite. Spinach doesn't have too much flavor, so when it's blended with some home-grown mint, it creates a refreshing and vibrant green layer.

Walmart as started to carry quite a few organic products, including Stonyfield Yogurt! I try to eat organic, but it isn't always wallet-friendly. Luckily, now that Walmart is carrying more organic products, my family can eat healthier and I don't have to worry about taking out a loan for groceries.

In my latest haul, I purchased a good amount of organic food from Walmart. Stonyfield Yogurt is always on our shopping list. I also bought organic sugar cookie mix, cereal and macaroni & cheese for the toddler. Some other organic produce, like spinach for smoothies, and carrots and green onions for dinner that night. I always keep a good supply of organic dark chocolate chips and unsweetened coconut flakes on hand in case I need them for baking. I also stocked up on a few organic canned pantry items.
