Blueberry Almond Smoothie and A New Look!

Blueberry Almond Smoothie

Hey everyone! I am so happy to share with you this recipe but also if you’ve been to my site before, you may notice I have a new header! Okay, so..not that exciting to all of you but it took a lot of work to create a new one! I felt like my old header was a little out of date since I made it when I first created the website. This new header is much prettier in my opinion, haha and it better reflects me! Anyways, before I get on to the recipe I just have to tell you my reason for not posting yesterday..Well, I was making my after school snack as usual and I poured myself a tall glass of water. If you don’t know, I am probably one of the most clumsy people you will meet. So of course, I spilt my whole glass of water. Now that would have been alright, I mean it’s not hard to clean up water but where of all places did that water land? That’s right, all over my Macbook Pro. As you might picture, I immediately started to freak out and turned the laptop upside down as it dripped out water. I put it on a towel upside down like that with a fan blowing on it for the rest of the day and today I cautiously tried turing it on and I am soooo happy to say it works! (Knock on wood). I guess macs are tougher then you might think! So that is the reason I didn’t post anything that day! Just thought I’d share :). Now finally onto the recipe!! Blueberry Almond high Protein Smoothie! *No there is no protein powder. This drink is perfect as a filling quick breakfast!
