Supergreens and super kids…

Featured

There’s something to be said for those moments we shared as kids over milkshakes.  The cold silver cups filled to the brim with a gorgeous frothy milkshake that always disappeared too quickly.  Way too quickly…  Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla, Lime and Caramel.  Fanta spiders.  Creaming soda spiders…. Roller-skates were our mode of transport.  We sat at milk bars for hours.  We made friends.  We laughed.  We loved.

Memories were made.

Fast forward (err….cough!) 30+ years and we are sitting in my kitchen.  Mr nearly three hanging with me.  His love of smoothies is pretty cute.  The mention of one sends him in a happy dance across the kitchen floor, high-fiving the world.  I’m not quite sure when I let him in on a little secret… That it’s healthy.  We sit and laugh.  And love.  And drink supergreen smoothies in glass jars with stainless steel straws.  A little hipster you say.  Not really.  We are just being kind to ourselves and to the earth.

What does it matter if it’s healthy?  Maybe I won’t ever tell him.  What would it achieve…?Memories are being made.  Good ones.  And there’s not one single grain of refined sugar in sight.

That’s our little secret!
