Lately on the weekends we have started a little tradition with the girls.  We head to the big playground in our local town and let them go crazy.  They slide, swing and run around.  Works out great for us because it’s a sure thing that they get a good nap and good for them because they get plenty of exercise but most of all have a lot of fun.  After time at the park we walk to the “smoothie place” and they split a smoothie of choice.  With the temperatures rising it’s the perfect treat.  This weekend with two sick little ones the park time was limited but it didn’t mean that the smoothie wasn’t going to be had.  When I had to explain that we couldn’t head to the park because we didn’t want to give the other little boys and girls pink eye it was hard for them to understand.  And yes, we were unlucky in that the other little one got the pink eye.  One got it on Monday of last week and the other Friday night.  No fun!  Anyways, the only thing to make two little girls happy at that moment was the idea of making our very own smoothie.  What made it even more fun was they helped in making the smoothie.  They put the frozen fruit in the blender and poured everything in.  Within a few minutes they were two happy little girls with their own smoothie.  Which of course made for a happy mommy!  I’m not sure if the tradition of going to the park may be broken but maybe we can start the tradition of making smoothies together at home.  Sounds fun to me.

This is a light and refreshing smoothie perfect for the warmer weather that is upon us.  I used coconut yogurt and milk but go ahead and use what you prefer.  You could even use a fruit yogurt if you wanted.  I prefer plain or vanilla because it doesn’t take away from the natural sweetness of the real fruit.  And the beauty of making smoothies if you can make it just the way you like.  Next up on our list is peach and raspberries.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

    Looks great! I have a question for you… how do you store all of your recipes? I’d love to start a system and would prefer something beautiful, on paper that i can access in the kitchen. Any ideas are appreciated!!

    Hi Marla!

    I have tickets for this weekend but a lot going on here at home so I’m still trying to figure out if I’m going to make it. Trying my best. Would love to see everyone. :)

    Hi Jami!
    Great question! I have to admit my recipes have become less and less organized since my little ones arrived. I actually have a bunch of recipes waiting to be filed. I’m not sure if you have ever heard of Circa by Levenger. It’s really great to personalize it the way you like it. I use that with the clear sleeves and dividers right now. The plastic sleeves keep the recipe clean while cooking in the kitchen too. However, I’m always on the hunt for a new way to keep recipes organized and “pretty”.

  8. This sounds completely PERFECT for a warm, heat-wave day we had in Nashville–especially for breakfast. :)
