smooth move

Today I am a smoothier smoothiera smoothierista... whatever you call the maker of smoothies. I can tell what kind of day my husband has had when as soon as he serves dinner he asks for dessert. Have I mentioned my husband's weird tastes? If not: he is gluten-free and not a sweet toothed guy in the least bit, weird right?! So if he is asking for dessert we know it has been a day.

Of course when some one asks my favorite question of "what is for dessert" my mind wonders to cupcakes with homemade buttercream frosting, layers of love brownies, homemade peanut butter cup ice cream... But when my husband asks, he only means one thing- a smoothie. So today I busted out our blender and made one killer smoothie. 

I would try to post the recipe here so you could all recover from not so good days, but one thing I am not good at is making up recipes. If you need verification ask a friend of mine that recently asked for my mashed potato recipe. It went something like potatoes, salt, pepper, garlic, butter, smush and serve. So, for lack of better words here is my ingredient list. Please enjoy a smoothie tonight- it is good for the soul.

First, an over zealous amount of fresh raspberries and some vanilla yogurt

Top it off with frozen strawberries and frozen cherries

Oh, and a healthy splash of orange juice

And to make it really a dessert some wonderful chocolate chips

Hint: the best part of smoothie making is just throw in a blender everything you like to eat. We try to always switch things up by adding blueberries, peaches, or pineapple juice. The other day we got really adventurous and made a coffee ice cream smoothie and a peanut butter and jelly smoothie. If you are crazy you could enjoy a green smoothie with my mom...

Extra hint: they taste really good when shared with a friend.
