My oldest graduated from High School on Sunday and on Monday had a morning appointment at the oral surgeon to have all of his wisdom teeth extracted.
When he thought about eating ice cream all day, I think it sounded appealing until about 3 PM. He was tired of it.
We make smoothies around here, but they are like “kitchen sink smoothies” that we throw in whatever is laying around. I haven’t ever followed a recipe.
So I thought I would ask for inspiration.
I got some yummy ideas… all of which I am sure we will try this week.
I was headed to the store and asked which one I should make first, and this was his first pick!
It was easy and I whipped it up right when I got home.
He slurped it down…sans the straw…no dry sockets please!!
Thank you to Ingrid Stephenson Rodgers for sending me the recipe!!
Purple Cow Smoothie
Ingrid Stephenson Rodgers
2 cups of grape juice
1 cup of blueberries (I used frozen ones)
2 cups of vanilla yogurt
I added about a cup of ice cubes
Blend and serve with a dollop of whipped cream and purple sprinkles!
When I handed it to him he said “OOOOooooo even whipped cream!”
He LOVED it!!
If you make this recipe, I’d love to know! Snap a picture, share the photo on social media with the hashtag #AnAffairFromTheHeart – I’d love to see what you made! – Michaela
