Yummy and healthy pineapple and coconut smoothie from

Since it’s been raining here a lot lately, we decided to have a family movie day this week. I’ve been promising Arik this for a while now, so I was happy to finally get around to it. He picked out Ratatouille to watch, I popped popcorn, we stretched out on the couch and spent the afternoon there.

At halftime, I made this pineapple coconut smoothie to try and bring some summer feeling into the place. It totally worked! 🙂 If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend having a movie day. It really is fun and relaxing for everyone involved (which often times is not the case with toddler activities) and it is a great change-up to those busy weekday afternoons. Oh and the smoothie; I highly recommend that too.  It just sweetened up the whole day! 🙂
