The Birthday Girl & Her Berry Good Smoothie

Happy Birthday to Indigo
Happy Birthday to Indigo
Happy Birthday dear Indigooooo
Happppppy Birthday to you!

Any many, many, many more.

Today my girl turns two!

I like to confess things on this blog and today I am making a confession for Indigo…

Indigo confesses that she would rather eat fruit then eat any of my baked goods.

There she said it, maybe one day she will change her mind – but for today she leaves you with a smoothie recipe.

Just one more thing…Indigo – thanks for being Indigo.

INGREDIENTS - makes 1 large smoothie

½ cup OJ
¼ cup Greek Yogurt, plain
½ of a banana
¼ cup of blueberries
¼ cup of strawberries, 2 normal sized berries
3 ice cubes


Blend together and enjoy – SERVE in wine glasses for a fancier feeling.

I plan on a festive evening with my husband and daughter, I hope anyone who reads this can also enjoy a wonderfully happy and relaxing night with their own family!

Happy Birthday, Indigo! Love her sweet curls.

My kiddos love their fruit and their smoothies, too.

I would like that smoothie for my birthday too, and I confess I am a bit over the age of two. Hope you all enjoyed the festivities...two is such a fun age.

Happy birthday Indigo.
It's actually very smart of her to choose fresh fruits over sweet bakes, fresh fruits are definately better than cooked ones.

Happy b-day to your beautiful baby-girl with a healthy outlook in prefering fruits.

Like this smoothie and it must be really cold with those ice cubes and great texture from the Greek yogurt. It's a meal, for sure!

Happy happy birthday, Indigo girl!

PS I think all beverages should be served in wine glasses. I love to feel fancy.

Happy Birthday Indigo. That's actually a very good thing that she prefers fruit. Most kids prefer cake.
