Recipes, Smoothies

Ahh, the good life.


If you really know my dad, you will know the following phrases:

“Ahh, the good life!”

*Grabs chocolate chip cookies from store, smiles, quietly sets them in the cart,* and says, “Its for the kids..”

“Sure, sure, sure…”

“Hot Shot!!”

In reality, you should only have to be with my dad in a casual setting for about an hour to hear these phrases. And these are only four. My dad is a hilarious creature of habit that always keeps our family laughing. He also always keeps our family full of his delicious smoothies every morning. Yes, he literally brings my mother a smoothie in bed every single day. Can my parents get any cuter?

And let me tell you, his smoothies are to die for. They are so good, filling, and nutritious.

Note: My dad agreed to helping me out with making a video of one of his smoothies. Filming this video was quite the experience. My friend Kat and I took about an hour to film my previous video. With this video, it literally took 3 minutes. The BYU game was on, so my dad tried to get it done as quickly as possible. Kat and I were franticly running all around him quickly trying to get each shot! haha. When it was over,we just looked at each other completely flabbergasted and just laughed!

Hope you enjoy it 🙂
