Smoothie-licious

The wonderful fruits of summer are beginning to wane.  But before they do you may just have to try this recipe for a blueberry peach smoothie.  My kindergartner requested this smoothie for lunch today alongside his pb and j.  I'm so glad I get to each lunch with him everyday!  I am trying to enjoy these precious moments because time just won't stand still.  I am painfully aware my boys are growing up way too fast.  Serving them their favorite foods is just a small way of showing my love for them.

Either fresh or frozen fruit will work for this - my wal-mart actually had peaches at 50c a pound yesterday.  I couldn't believe it!

This is my best guess at how I make it (since I never measure):

Blueberry Peach Smoothie
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1 peach, cut into chunks (fresh or frozen)
3/4 cup vanilla yogurt (our favorite is Dannon)
1 cup milk
1-2 Tbsp honey
sprinkle of cinnamon
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend away!
Makes 2 large glasses

To make it even healthier sometimes I add a bit of flax.  Don't skip the honey and cinnamon - they totally make this smoothie-licious!

Dearest...Your thoughts are so precious as you talk about your boys.
There was a song many years ago that had the line in it "turn around and their walking out the door." Yes, It comes way too fast. But...oh how I love it that my son found you and at last I had a daughter. : )
