Birthday Cake Smoothie

Birthday Cake Smoothie

Question of the day: What's better than birthday cake?

Answer: A birthday cake smoothie. Or rather, a healthy birthday cake smoothie. Until last week, I didn't think it was possible for birthday cake and healthy to be used in the same sentence. A bit of experimenting taught me otherwise.

Yesterday we celebrated Little J's fourth birthday. Sometime in between looking at her old baby photos, smelling her old onsies and sobbing hysterically, I managed to whip of a batch of this ridiculously delicious Birthday Cake Smoothie. Don't get me wrong, cake was still had this year, but in an effort to remain somewhat healthy, it was a bit on the smaller side.



Ingredients
1 cup vanilla almond milk
2 large banana, sliced and frozen
½ cup plain yogurt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon almond extract

Sprinkles (optional)

Add ingredients to blender (sans sprinkles) Blend well. If your smoothie is the not the right consistency, add additional vanilla milk as needed. Top with sprinkles. Serve with a smile.

Simple enough, crazily healthy and oh so delicious.
