Berrylicious Smoothies

I thought that these would just be cute. But I was wrong.

Berrylicious Smoothies

According to my 3 and 5 year old daughters, these rocked their world.

I was “The BEST mom in the world.” “The COOLEST.” “The most awesomest.” And my favorite “How could you have known just what I wanted? A unicorn-fairy-rainbow-princess smoothie!?”

In other words, if you have kids, these will probably go over well. Uh, I am pretty sure it isn’t the delicious healthy combo of milk and fresh fruit. I am pretty sure that it is the layering effect of the particularly thick smoothies.

I will go ahead and make these again tomorrow as a breakfast treat they can wake up to on Valentines Day. Healthy, filling and totally adorable- it’s how we should all start our day!
