Summer is coming to an end so I am making shore I get all my smoothies in. My favorite smoothie is a plain fresh strawberry banana smoothie. But my second favorite smoothie is a mixed berry. As has, always will. I had my first one in Disney worlds when I was 4. I will never forget that day!! Drinking my first  smoothie with Mickey Mouse at my side, fun. I want to go back to Disney world with my family! I think we are going back to Mexico next year. Anyway, I don’t like drinking smoothies in the winter, that is hot
coco time!

This is fresh beyond compare! I don’t like adding a
lot of sugar to any of my smoothies. I like fresh natural ingredients.yogurt, fruit, and ice!! Makes a great smoothie.!

When ever I come home from work, I’m hungry. I am always hungry. This is beyong healthy with all that fresh fruit and its so filling. I am trying to only eat foods that are filling. Chips are good but not worth the calories. They don’t do anything to your body to fill it up. I am stuffed after drinking this!!

It hasn’t been hot here!! Its like 76 degrees right now. But its still nice to have a smoothie!! When I
was younger, I would put a strawberry,banana slice, and one of those cute mini umbrellas that they put in your drinks on vacation!

You can add or take things away from this. If you don’t like blueberries, take them out and add blackberries. Do what ever suits you. I follow this but my friend always adds blackberries!
I will never think any of my smoothies are as good as Jamba Juice or any smoothie place. They are pro smoothie makers. I don’t even have a smoothie place near my house, that is why I make smoothies so much.  But this is close! Here is a secret, take away the yogurt and put ice cream instead and put in like 1/2 cup milk, and a little more sugar. You can make a milkshake. But it is way better as a smoothie!!

Its cold and refreshing and every thing you want your smoothie!!! Are y’all bored? I am. So, um how has your day been going? I went to this new restaurant near my house and it was so good!!! I got  the best lobster mac and cheese!!! Better than mine, and I make good lobster mac and cheese. And though I was full, when I got home and started this post, I was craving a smoothie!!

Summer is coming to an end so I am making shore I get all my smoothies in. My favorite smoothie is a plain fresh strawberry banana  smoothie. As has, always will. I had my first one in Disney worlds when I was 4. I will never forget that day!! Drinking my first strawberry Banana smoothie wit Mickey Mouse at my side, fun. I want to go back to Disney world with my family! I think we are going back to Mexico next year. Anyway, I don’t like drinking smoothies in the winter, that is hot coco time!

This is fresh beyond compare! I don’t like adding a lot of sugar to any of my smoothies. I like fresh natural ingredients. yogurt, fruit, and ice!! Makes a great smoothie.! This smoothie has about 110 calories and 16 grams of sugar per serving. You can adjust if you want. You can double the fruit with the same amount of sugar, it will give a fruit smoothie and you can’t even taste the sweetness. The way I’m posting it is the best!

Fresh Lemonade

Did y’all know that lemonade has gone up like $2 since last summer!!!!! The problem is kids love it!The lunch periods and lots of kids have soda, cool aid pure sugar drinks, and this pure sugar lemonade. I wanted to see if I could make a delicious lemonade. I still added some sugar because with out it it taste like bitter water.

You have the ingredients in your house. So if you are grocery shopping with your kid and they ask you to but them a fruit punch, say that you can make lemonade at home. The
great thing is they can’t even taste the difference!!! If you put it in a bottle they would have no idea. But it is so much healthier and more fresh then store bought. Now you know it is freshly squeezed, y’all don’t know how they make those juice boxes. I do admit, I love juice boxes!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are sugary so they are really sweet but this is much better and super refreshing!!!!! It’s summer, its hot its nice to
have a big cold cup of lemonade. Sometimes when you buy lemonade it taste kinda artificial cause there are like 21 grams of added sugar. Its
good but its so sweet and it taste so much like sugar. I love knowing
how much sugar goes into my drinks so I know what I’m feeding my family.
This has sugar so it will be sweet and not bitter. But it is mostly all
natural flavor. It taste great and refreshing! You will be amazed how
much money you can save by making things like pizza, lemonade,and juices
then buying. I am saving $100 each month by buying these things like
seriously! Its pretty awesome!

Y’all know what they say. When life gives you lemons make lemonade!!!!!!! I will be honest, I don’t get that. But I follow itbecause who dose not love lemonade!!!! Really, I have never met any onewho dose not like lemonade. When I go to Chick-Fil-A I still getlemonade and its done in less then a minute. I used to be this powdercalled Cristal light and you put it in a pitcher of cold water and youput the powder in and mix it!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is actually pretty good.But one day I just made homemade lemonade and I stopped buying it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
