It was a smoothie kind of day.

But not just any old smoothie kind of day.

Once afternoon snack time rolled around, I made it into afternoon snack happy hour.

Greek yogurt + ice + honey drizzle + cocoa powder + bananas + ….Baileys.

Hopefully I won’t be passed out on the couch by the time Mr. How Sweet gets home.

    Hey Jessica – the PA state stores are having a clearance sale this week and a couple of the Baily’s flavors were on sale! Flavored vodkas, mojitos, all kinds of good stuff for summer. We were like kids in a candy store (ok, really adults in a liquor store!)

    Mmmmm – you should try Bailey’s spiked frosting on a chocolate cake. Do it… Or Pinnacle whipped cream vodka in hot chocolate. It got me through a verrrry cold day of tailgating a few months ago.

    And just when I was trying to convince myself smoothies are healthy! This one sounds a little more fun than the one I’m blending with strawberries, blueberries, kale, spinach and protein pwdr. Yours sounds much more yummy!
