Easy Peasy Morning Berry Smoothie

Now that we have returned from our Seattle foodie adventure (post coming soon) it is time to detox. Our family ate ‘well’ (aka tasty but not healthy) while on vacation and it is time to get our nutritional needs back on track. This week I will be making a variety of fresh fruit yogurt smoothies. When making my smoothies I hardly ever use measurements. Instead I just eyeball everything and taste test my way through. But, for the sake of this post, here are some measurements for you.

Ingredients you will need for the smoothie

-1/2 cup of ice

Blend the ingredients until smooth. Add additional ice, berries, yogurt, and/or sugar depending on your desired taste and consistency.

Pour into a glass, add a strawberry and straw and enjoy.

Easy peasy right? This recipe made enough for two small smoothies for my mister and I. I shared my smoothie with my little guy and he loved it. The little guy let out an enthusiastic ‘yum!’ after his first sip.

Do you have any smoothie recipes to share? I would love to expand my smoothie repertoire.

Donut Vault and Mity Nice

Today, my mister and I spent our day as if it was BM.  BM is our acronym for ‘before Miles’.  After much debate on how we should spend the last day of my mister’s one week vacation we decided we would drop our little guy off at daycare and extend our vacation one more day.  We spent the day eating and walking.  We went to Donut Vault and enjoyed a chestnut and vanilla glazed donut with a cup of iced coffee.

We walked Michigan Avenue and bought gifts for our loved ones.  We ended our day with a tasty lunch at Mity Nice where I treated myself to macaroni & cheese and a Spicy Tuna Burger.  My mister enjoyed a Fritzy’s Special Burger.

All in all, it was a wonderful way to end a wonderful week.  What was life like for you BK (before kids)?
