Dessert Recipe: Strawberry Smoothies

22 May

Summertime is here, and I’m pregnant.

I’m not just a little pregnant. I’m a lot pregnant. Some of you might not know what this means- how can you be “a lot” pregnant? Well, my dear friend, I’ll tell you.

“A lot pregnant”, in my professional opinion, is somewhere between “barely pregnant” and “so pregnant I could scream”.

I’m officially 27 weeks into this pregnancy, which leaves me just 12-13 short weeks til little Abby makes her appearance. I use the term “little” very loosely here, as I happen to be one of those lucky women who produces large, chunky children. (In fact, when Aaron was born, the first words out of the doctor’s mouth as he held my brand new, 9 pound 3 ounce son were, “He’s a chunk!” Oh, what a memory. Thanks, doc.) So anyway, Abby weighs somewhere between 2 and 3 pounds at the moment, and I think I can safely say she’s going to kick-boxer. She’s active, and she loves to play games with the nerves in my back. Oh joy! Also, in case you’re wondering, I’m measuring in at about 30 weeks, (the distance from the top of my belly to the bottom of it), so you can imagine the increasing level of my general discomfort. And don’t even get me started on the effect summer heat has on women who are “a lot pregnant”.

So why am I spending so many precious words to express my complaining-ness to you? Because I’ve found the solution. I’ll give you a hint: it’s pink, it’s served out of a wine glass (because I’m classy like that), and it tastes like heaven. No, there’s no alcohol involved, but it is intoxicating nonetheless.

Strawberry Smoothies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 container of strawberry yogurt (the individual sized containers)

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients into the blender (I used my food processor)
  2. Blend until smooth-ish.
  3. Pour into a nice glass (because it tastes better that way)
  4. Sip your troubles away.
