Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie

It should come as no surprise that we like pink in this household.


And it’s nothing we’ve done as parents to encourage this girl’s obsession with pink.

I received the following text from Matty B yesterday.


You see, both kids had a pink paint sample from Home Depot. But it wasn’t enough that the girl had her own sample. No one else in the world is allowed to possess and/or love pink. Especially not her brother.


She reads in pink.

She dances in pink.



I kind of want her to be original and like green and maybe play soccer. She likes pink and plays princess.

But she makes my bed. And she’s super cute. And so I made a Miss Rae approved smoothie.


I like green smoothies cause I know that means kale is involved. But kale would defeat the purpose of a pink smoothie.


I like peanut butter in a smoothie, cause…I like peanut butter. But peanut butter would defeat the purpose of a Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie.


The smoothie was delicious, but needed some crunch, so I crumbled some graham crackers on top. Phenomenal.


Miss Rae immediately requested a sample. I immediately complied. No one wants a 15 minute Home Depot-esque meltdown on their hands…

Hmmm…a girl who likes pink? Wherever could she have gotten it from…?
