Happy Valentine’s Day! One of the things my family loves is when I make a big batch of a green smoothie to share with them in the mornings. My kids thing green smoothies are the best things ever. I figured they would be equally happy with more of a treat coming out of the blender for Valentine’s Day, so I whipped up a healthier take on a strawberry milkshake.
When the Fujilings saw that I was making something with strawberries, they were immediately on board (the Fujilings have serious places in their hearts for strawberries), and once they each got a glass for themselves, they were extremely happy. (Bug insisted that unicorns make people happy too, and must be in her picture.)
So whip up a sweet treat to serve to those you love. You could call it a milkshake, but frappé just sounds more romantic, don’t you think? Happy Valentine’s Day from the Fuji Family.
