a smoothie and handmade washcloths {pinterest finds friday}

i am still adjusting to working full days on etsy orders and didn’t even remember my {pinterest finds friday} post until, well, this morning.  so no crafts but instead, a smoothie.  i have followed the undressed skeleton blog for a while now but haven’t really tried many of her recipes.  before the new year, she used a lot of artificial sweeteners and shortcuts to avoid calories.  as her new years resolution, she is trying to avoid the “chemical shit storm” {as i refer to anything that is artificially sweetened or flavored} products.

here is the pinterest inspiration:

i made a couple of adjustments to the original recipe.  here is the original and my {adaptations}:

1/2 small banana {frozen}

5 large strawberries {frozen}

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk {1 cup}

1 packet of Truvia

1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder

{i added 1 tbsp of chia seeds}

and those beauties next to my morning smoothie, handmade washcloths.  i LOVE handmade gifts.  these were made by my former 8th grade language arts teacher and now good friend.  she gave these to me and i just love them.  i haven’t used them yet.  i just see them and they make me smile.

thank you so much kathy for the thoughtful gifts.  i love them.
