Ok, so this isn’t technically a lunch meal, but it can go with lunch! Or you can make it your lunch…or breakfast or snack for that matter.
Cylas got a Junior Cookbook for Christmas this year from his
mommy little sister. He has been scouring it over since the moment he opened it. We are on a mission to make which ever dishes he chooses, too. Yesterday, we went shopping and picked up the ingredients for two recipes and these smoothies were one of them.
