Superfood Green Smoothie

Super Food Blueberries and Greens Smoothie. Kid Approved!!

Yesterday was a big day in our house!!  It was the first day of preschool for Owen and Charlie AND Ben decided to walk {finally!!}.  More on those two milestones below …

Yesterday morning I also did one of my first scopes (that’s the lingo) on Periscope.  Wait, wait, wait … so what is Periscope, you may ask??  It’s a new social media platform that allows users to broadcast live to their followers (or others).  I can show you a recipe or craft live, or just chat.  Those watching are able to add comments and interact with the broadcaster, and the broadcaster can literally ‘chat’ with the audience.  It’s super addicting, but if you follow the right people …. there’s a wealth of knowledge out there being shared … FOR FREE!!

Why am I telling you all this??  Because yesterday morning I shared our ‘power breakfast’ smoothie recipe on Periscope and had a couple people ask where they could find the recipe online.  So … here it is, y’all!!

And one viewer asked to ‘see one of my kids drink it’ (maybe to prove that they really DO like this smoothie).  Since Owen and Charlie were deep in Chuggington (yes, I sometimes let them watch TV in the mornings … don’t judge), Ben was my helper by default.  He made his first appearance on Periscope (and totally drank up his smoothie!!), check it out (these are screenshots, so sorry about the poor quality) :

and here’s how he looked after he finished his entire smoothie:


In other news … Owen and Charlie had a great first day of preschool yesterday:


And, because I know you’re also dying to watch Ben take some of his first steps … here you go (excuse the super messy playroom!!):

I’d love for you to follow me on Periscope!!  My handle is @viewfromfridge.  I’m a super awkward broadcaster (like SUPER awkward), but oh well.  Maybe I’ll improve??  Or not, and you can just be entertained …
