Visiting Teaching Smoothies

For visiting teaching last month, my partner and I decided to have a “smoothie tasting.”  Both of the ladies we visit have lost significant amounts of weight in the last year and swear by their fruit and veggie smoothies.  Lacie and I wanted to taste them and see if we wanted to make them for ourselves.  Sarah went first.  Hers was spinach, carrot, orange, apple, berries, coconut milk, and hemp protein powder.  (She also brought her viatmix because she knew my 12 year old Target blender wouldn’t do the trick.

Here was the taste test. . .

I love Lacie’s face in the next three pictures.  She HATED it!  I have to say, it was not very good.  The hemp protein made it taste like I was eating a bucket of weeds.

Joni went next and hers was much more appetizing to me.  She used kale, carrots, tangerine, strawberries, cranberries, and Emergen-C packet, soy protein powder, water, and a dried date.  Much, much better, in fact I have made this one (with a variety of different fruits I have on hand) for myself and the kids and everyone seems to like it.

What a pain!

January was a painful month for miss Sydney. 

First she got her ears pierced (a Christmas gift from Grandma Theresa).  She was super brave but made the biggest surprised face when they shot the earrings in.

Then she had to get 4 teeth pulled.  Her little mouth is so crammed that I’m sure we’ll end up doing some orthodontia but for now, they wanted to get some baby teeth out of the way so the permanent ones will be able to stay straight.   Of course, they couldn’t do them in one appointment so she had to get numbed two different days.  Again, she was so brave and unusually tough and made it through no problem!
