Summer Smoothie Goodness

Summer is finally upon us in the Northwest! We were outside all day today, plan to be outside all day tomorrow and the next. It was a long, cold June!

Having grown up in the California desert, the heat is literally scorching. The summer I left home was triple digit temperatures for an entire month!

Coconut Milk

What is your favorite summer smoothie?

We keep it simple over here. Two ingredients. My kind of recipe!

Coconut Banana Smoothie


and . . .

We blend these ingredients in our blender with ice.  The kids LOVE it. Even the pickiest eaters won't say no. It's a great way to get the yummy goodness of coconut in your children. They make great frozen treats in popsicle molds.

Where do we buy coconut milk?

You can find it at almost any grocery store in the Asian food section or at Trader Joe's. We buy ours from Amazon, it's the cheapest option if you like it as much as we do:

  What are your favorite ways to enjoy the sun?

“May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.

May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us.” 

-St. Therese of Lisieux
