Happy almost Friday!

First up, I have to apologize for my blog being down most of yesterday and the day before. I have to tell you, a blog going down is one of the most annoying things that can happen to a blogger. You are completely at the mercy of your host. So if you went searching for a dinner recipe and couldn’t load the blog, I’m sorry.

Secondly, this smoothie!

My kids have been sick for the last week and a half or so. None of them have been eating much since their throats are bothering them so I started making smoothies for them. This Almond Avo-Nana Smoothie is one of my favorite smoothies and I know it sounds very strange but it is absolutely delicious. You can’t even taste the avocado! And instead of a nut butter, you add almond meal so you still get the good fats and protein but without added sugar that peanut butter or almond butter typically has.

My 4 year old is currently obsessed with the smoothie and asks for it at least once a day.
