My mother-in-law stopped by a few weeks back with a fruit smoothie from McDonalds. She said that she read that smoothies were one of the best things you could have for breakfast.
Somehow I don't think the article meant McDonald's Smoothies.
Anyways, the other night I promised my girls to make strawberry smoothies for our Saturday Night "Daddy's at work" Sleep Over. I had some mix that I felt the need to buy from someone at work selling Tastefully Simple a while back. I made it once and forgot about it until recently.
So I go to open the mix and it has clumps in it, not too sure if it was meant to be that way. I hate that moment of "to use or not to use". I always err on the side of caution. What can I say, I'm a cautious girl.
Since I had already promised two little girls fruit smoothies and of course they weren't about to forget it, I decided to wing it. I put half a bag of frozen strawberries and a container of strawberry yogurt in the blender with a splash of milk. I figured if it wasn't sweet enough I could add sugar. But to my surprise, there was no need for any extra sweetener. There was enough for each of us to have a small smoothie.
Next time I'm going to try adding a banana and sneak a couple carrots in too to make it more healthy. But of course I forgot to buy frozen strawberries at the store so it will have to wait.
