I’m so in love with my niece, Nora!! I affectionately call her Nene. I told my sister that even though I haven’t met Nene, I love her so much already.

I’m so jealous my mom gets to hold and love on her! Grandma is in love with her 4th grandchild.

She is just the cutest!! When I gather more pictures, I will have to do a post just on this sweet lil babe. Remember that rustic shower a few months ago? Yeah, that was for her. Love you, Nene!

Today, I’m gonna share a real quick, smoothie recipe with you guys. We drink this all the time and the kids looooove it. It’s healthy, creamy and a great snack in between meals when you’re hungry but it’s not quite mealtime. I love whipping this up when the kids come home from school. Emmy gets really excited every time I take the blender out because she knows what’s up. I mean, look at her. #sweettomatoescupsarebomb

Chocolate Smoothie Avocado (about 4-5 servings)

  • 1/2 ripe avocado
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 frozen bananas
  • 2 cups milk
  • Optional: 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter

TIP: When you have old bananas, peel, break in half and freeze them in a container! This is the best tip if you want to save them for smoothies or banana bread. 

I don’t recommend putting more than half an avocado because it will get pretty creamy. In the blender, place the following ingredients in order: cocoa powder, half avocado, frozen bananas and then the milk. Blend until creamy and drink up! It’s delicious! If you use regular, ripe bananas, make sure to add crushed ice before blending.

 Add the cocoa powder first so it doesn’t splatter all over the top part of your blender.

 Drinking this smoothie obviously requires a lot of focus.

Just a pair of sisters enjoying their smoothies.

IMG_8045Try making them for your kids. If they like chocolate, they should like this smoothie. You can’t taste the avocado so they won’t know it’s in there.
