Hello my fine looking friends!

And to my my fine mamas out there, I hope you enjoyed you’re Mother’s day yesterday!

I spent mine over my Nana’s abode with my brothers and MJ, while we tried not to get knocked out by pop flies.

And just in case you were wondering, New England decided to skip spring this year.

After seeing Kate’s Green Goddess Hummus, I’ve had greenery on the brain. And something so healthy as a green smoothie sounded like the perfect way to cool down and refuel without heating up the kitchen.

This smoothie isn’t very sweet, so feel free to add a little more fruit to the equation if you’re not feeling so squeaky green. I left out the typical tarragon and chives of green goddess goodness, but I think Kermit would approve of the degree of green-ness this smoothie packs.
