It's finally springtime in Chicago, which means the season of bar-b-ques, beach days and picnics is in full swing! And as the days grow hotter, you'll surely be in need of some refreshing beverages and sweet treats. To celebrate Memorial Day, we made these darling strawberry, banana and blueberry skewers and paired them with a bubbly fruit punch cocktail. Coupled with festive red, white and blue accessories, our outdoor spread was the perfect way to enjoy the extended holiday weekend!
Recently, our to do list has seemed longer than there are hours in the day. In need of a simple snack, we teamed up with our friend and Chicago blogger for her go-to smoothie recipe. Megan, from Sparkles & Sprinkles
, whipped up this stress-free recipe that we can't wait to try!
Ingredients (makes one smoothie)
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
6 oz nonfat vanilla greek yogurt (or any yogurt will work here)
1 Tbs all-natural creamy peanut butter
Big handful of fresh spinach
Blend the banana on the highest speed until whipped. Add remaining ingredients in order and blend until spinach is completely blended. Pour into your favorite glass (we love this adorable Lilly Pulitzer tumbler) and enjoy!
