Ice cream for breakfast!?
Sure tasted like ice cream! When I asked mom, who has a sweet tooth, if she would like a smoothie for breakfast she hesitated and said, “Probably, but I don’t want a green one.” So I think she was pleasantly surprised with my purple ice cream 🙂
I put too much frozen fruit in a smoothie for mom and me and had the hardest time getting it to blend. When it finally did, it was frozeny sorbet texture.
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 cups frozen berries
- 1.5 cups milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/3 cup raw oats
- Cville Cluster on top!
Lipton Tea on the side – to be like mom! She’s obsessed. Also, I’ve lost my love for coffee again. It’s just too hot!
This morning marks the start of something big for a member of our blogging community:
Susan of The Great Balancing Act received the news that she has a mass in her chest and neck that has turned out to be Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She first shared the news of her cancer in this post, A Long Hard Road, and then later wrote of her official diagnosis in this post, Lymphoma, Explained.
I am totally in awe of Susan’s positivity, honesty and strength during the past few weeks. Having just gone through a cancer diagnosis and chemotherapy with my mother-in-law Karen (who you all see nearly daily), it broke my heart to read that Susan is now going through it too.
To show our support, many bloggers have bonded together under the lead of Janetha of Meals and Moves, who has spent weeks coordinating a massive auction and bake sale – The Great Fundraising Act – to help support Susan and the financial strain the drugs will have on her family. There are HUNDREDS of items to bid on – from blogger baked goods to big company donations.
From yours truly on behalf of Great Harvest Cville – a bag of Cville Cluster and Pancake Mix! Bids start at $10.
Hope you’ll consider browsing + bidding on items with Susan in mind.
Have a wonderful day!
