Cherry pineapple smoothie

It's smoothie season, right?! Well alright, it's nearly smoothie season. More snow is heading our way, so we aren't out of the woods yet here in Minnesota. That hasn't stopped me from making a ton of smoothies for my boys and myself. This cherry-pineapple version is my favorite concoction so far. It is packed with vitamins and nutrients, and you would never know it. Even my picky-eating boys slurp it down!

Tomorrow we are heading to Children's for my son's ear surgery. We would GREATLY appreciate prayers for him! We are all very eager to be on the other side of this.

Enjoy the smoothie! More to come!

Side note: The Yard Glacier is pretty teeny tiny right now. If we weren't expecting snow tonight, I would guess that it would be gone by Wednesday. It's anyone's guess! I wouldn't be surprised if giant hot dogs started falling from the sky!


Add the following ingredients to a blender:

1 cup fresh pineapple chunks

1/2 cup frozen cherries

3/4 cup fresh spinach

1/2 cup kale, chopped

1 heaping tablespoon chocolate-flavored whey protein

1/2 cup chocolate-flavored almond milk

3 to 4 large ice cubes

Blend until the mixture is smooth. Pour into one large glass (if you're not up for sharing) or two small glasses and enjoy!

Hi Mary! Our son is doing great since surgery! Granted, he does not have any hearing in his left ear, but he has adapted well to that (sadly). The surgery was a success and we are looking forward to getting him a prosthesis so he can hear again. How old is your great granddaughter? We will keep her in our prayers!
