Gavin’s good friend MK came over today to help keep Gavin (and Leif to an extent) occupied during the day. Poor kid has been so bored home with me all day long with no car.
They played great all morning and I was able to get a bit of work done successfully. In the afternoon, they requested a walk up the street to ride bikes and pick berries. Wanting to get out for some fresh air myself, I happily agreed. On our walk, we were successful in picking a large handful of delicious fresh red akala berries.
We decided that when we got back to the house, we would make ourselves smoothies with our delicious berries as a reward for having fun. MK gave me a recipe for the smoothie.
1 container of black cherry yogurt
1 container of passion-orange-pineapple yogurt
a handful of grapes
1/4 cup coconut water
a few chunks of coconut meat
a handful of ice cubes
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
When the smoothies were all done, I poured them into small glasses. MK looked at me and said, “You try it first.” She gave me a funny look and then said, “I have a confession to make. I just made that recipe up. I don’t know how to make smoothies. I just thought that sounded good. You try it first.” So I did, and you know what? That is one of the most delicious smoothies I have ever had. Better than anything I’ve ever had at Jamba Juice or Orange Julius. Good Job MK.
