Beach Smoothies

I have stopped washing our beach towels. I'm just throwing them into the back of my car - day after day. They're not really dirty anyway, just really really sandy (and more damp then I'd like to admit). I have also stopped packing full lunches for me and the boys. I found myself starting this crazy process at 7:30 am, hoping to meet friends at the beach around 10, and realized how silly I was being. For the rest of the summer it's used beach towels and smoothies.



The summer frenzy is finally catching up with me. The hot beach days with two kids in tow, evening events out, keeping up with work, and this sweet face waking me up in the wee hours (I can't get over his blonde swirl). It's intense and exhausting but so fleeting and wonderful too.



These are extra special sweet smoothies inspired by a friend of Dylan's who needed some TLC after a bad accident. She got a batch to sip on and we got a batch for the road. They definitely satisfy a sweet tooth.


Cocoa Beach
1 banana
1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
2 tablespoons extra liquid (water, whole milk, nut milk, etc.)


Tropical Beach 
1 banana
1/2 cup mango
1/2 cup pineapple
1 cup full fat coconut milk
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
2 tablespoons extra liquid (water, whole milk, nut milk, etc.)

PS. My mom's garden has turned into a sweet pea wonderland.
