We invested in a Vita Mix blender several years ago and with it the family enjoys making smoothies. I purchase fruit and then we freeze it and then blend. This blender is very powerful and will blend whole pieces of fruit very quickly. I like to start out with a frozen banana, add another fruit or two along with plain yogurt, a tablespoon of honey, sometimes a couple of dates for added sweetness. Then for added nutrition I add a large handful or two of spinach which then turns it this pretty pistachio green color. Today's smoothie is banana, peach, papaya. If you choose a darker fruit, like blueberries or raspberries, the green won't be as pretty, but still packed with nutrition. I like to put granola on top of my smoothies for an extra treat. If the color bothers you, call it pistachio, it helps.
Married to my high school sweetheart for 38 years and have 11 children, 7 sons, 4 daughters. The oldest is 36 and the youngest is 16. Four of our children still live at home.

All my children know and love the Lord which has made it all worthwhile.
