Strawberry Smoothie Without Yogurt

"Reunited, and it feels so goooooooooood....."

This is how I feel at this very second. I've missed you guys terribly. In case you were  wondering, the move went great. Awesome, actually. If there is any benefit to having a husband in the ministry, it's the amount of helping hands available when you move.

Anyway, I've been meaning to ask you, why is it so hot outside? I'm not okay with it. I'm a little afraid of what the summer holds if the spring is this intense. So in light of us moving (and because it's hotter than dickens outside), I threw together a fun little smoothie. Not a serious smoothie. It's not the kind you'd take home to your mother. It's the kind that you take on one or two dates, then realize that long-term, you want to find a serious smoothie.

I repeat: this is not a serious smoothie.

I understand that I'm sending conflicting messages about this. Let me clarify: this is a dang good smoothie. But it's so simple, it's hard to take it seriously. Real smoothies have health-beneficial powders, 7 different types of fruit, trendy names like "Cabana Banana" and cost $9 at Smoothie King. This estimated $2 smoothie (for 2 large servings) can't possibly be the real thing.

Who's to say?

I'll leave it at this: my husband, who is the pickiest eater alive, has completely finished his. In under 6 minutes. Because it's a good stinkin' smoothie. He compared it to a strawberry eclaire. Come to think of it, this would be perfect for an after-school snack that's not packed full of calories (wouldn't want to spoil any appetites). It would also be great for an outdoor summer get-together. But I'm not going to tell you how to live your life. I just offer great suggestions like this one.

  • 5 strawberries (tops removed)
  • 10 ice cubes
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons Splenda or sweetener (if you're an artificial sweeteners, go for the real stuff. It won't kill you)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla


Blend all ingredients together. Serve with a strawberry as garnish.

Love and too-good-to-be-true,
