Cake batter for breakfast? Why the heck not?!?! Especially when that cake batter is in smoothie form and is green.
This kind of “cake” is cool, creamy, sweet, and full of protein, iron, vitamins and minerals, and sprinkles. Ding ding ding! We have a winner.
I feel a little silly for posting this, because it’s a pretty standard smoothie, just with the addition of almond extract. But that little secret ingredient puts it over the top. With the little crunch from the sprinkles, this tastes just like licking the bowl after you bake a birthday cake.

Now that we’ve made our smoothies, it’s time for some ABCs. I saw this on Teri’s blog, who got it from Janetha. I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I enjoy most in life with you (and practice my alphabet while we’re at it).
A – Almond butter (specifically this kind)
B – Bananas, I think I buy a dozen every time I go to the store, to eat for snacks, and freeze for smoothies
C – Coffee and chocolate (together, and separate. I love my coffee in the morning, and if there is chocolate involved I’m extra happy)
D – Dark chocolate, the darker the betta’
E – Eggs with sriacha sauce
F – Fro Yo (white chocolate, chocolate, peanut butter, cake batter, raspberry… you name it)
G – the Gap , I am in L-O-V-E with everything in their summer line especially these pants in green
H – HauteLook This is one of my favorite places to buy clothes and accessories for cheap. It’s like TJ Maxx or Marshalls, but online.
I – Ice Cream, self explanatory
J – J Crew, can you tell I like shopping a little too much?
K – [k]offee, so much so that it should start with a K
L – Lady Antebellum
M – Mexican food and Margaritas, I can’t wait to enjoy both on our honeymoon in 16 DAYS!
N – Neutrogena lip gloss, this stuff is so slick and shiny without being sticky, perfect for summer
O – Oatmeal, specifically whipped steel cut oats, I can’t wait for it to be not so hot so that I can eat hot oats again
P – this one is hard, Pickles, Pumpkin, Popcorn, Popsicles, Peanut Butter…
R – Reese’s peanut butter cups, my weakness, have you tried them on s’mores?
S – Sweet Potatoes, usually in fry form, with some cumin and cayenne pepper involved (aka not whipped with brown sugar and cinnamon)
T – Taylor Swift, she’s just so sweet I can’t help but love her

V – Veggie burgers
X – xtra large pours of wine (Teri’s great idea)
Y – yogurt, greek style
Z – zebra print, I love me some animal print this year
Phew! That was fun (and kind of hard). Now it’s your turn, pick a letter and tell me some of your favorite things in life that start with it.
