The other day when I was driving Meghan to school, I said, “Brrrrr! Where did this cold weather come from?”
She replied, deadpan, “It is winter, you know.”
What would I do without the logic of my four-year-old? Thanks for the reality check, kid. I sure hope Mr. Groundhog was right and spring weather is on its way because I am so over winter.
This healthy smoothie is my way of bringing a little summer flavor to a cold and drab winter. In the town where I grew up, the thing to do in the summer after a soccer or baseball game was to head to Dairy Queen for a treat. The cool thing to get was a Blizzard, but I was all about the banana split. It had all of my favorite flavors together: banana, strawberry, chocolate, and peanut.
I can’t remember the last time I went to a Dairy Queen, but I’m glad I can easily recreate those flavors at home. Trust me, this smoothie is much healthier than DQ’s banana split, and you don’t have to wait until summer to get it.
As always, enjoy, my friends!Print
