Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie

Hi everybody!

Today, it feels like Old Man Winter has come around! Cloudy, rainy, chilly and very windy. Not my kind of weather…but like the Rolling Stones sang (and I used to always sing to my daughters), “You can’t always get what ya want”. ūüėČ

I recently posted about my starting to work with Meal Garden, an awesome meal planning, recipe collecting, shopping list making, healthy eating web site. Be on the look-out because soon I’ll have some exciting news to share with you relating to that site! You can always check them out with my special link here. And, you can also see one of my recipe collections¬†with this link. I’ll tell you the good news as soon it’s available!

Today, I have another smoothie recipe for you. It’s SO GOOD! It really IS like drinking your dessert! It makes a great, filling snack or even a meal replacement.

I’m sure you’ll love it!

Happy cooking! (Or, in this case, smoothie making!)
