I have a confession to make. I can't stand lunch. As far as the three meals go...lunch is by far my least favorite. Unless I'm in the south of France drinking a nice rosé with some oysters on the side - I'm not interested in lunch. Unfortunately, I don't frequent the Côte d'Azur very often (meaning never) and usually I make a meal out of my daughters grilled cheese or peanut butter and jelly crusts. Which surprisingly isn't as bad as it sounds but there isn't much nutritional value there. I need something that is quick, tasty and nutritious. This little smoothie is a great combination. It has your good fat, protein, and fruit. It's quick and delicious...I just might become a lunch person. Next up, I'll invent a rosé smoothie! Enjoy and I'm sure your kiddos are going to want some sips of your smoothie too!
