WIAW Smoothie Chart

It is Wednesday! Thank goodness!  It has already been one of those crazy weeks where I can’t get anything done, yet still so busy…does that even make sense?! Anyway, I have really been digging the smoothies lately, and though I’ve shared a handful of recipes with you, before, I thought that I would share a fun little chart on Smoothie Making 101 for this edition of What I Ate Wednesday!  Thank you, Jenn, from Peas & Crayons for hosting this fun link up, I love finding new blogs to read and new recipes to try each week. 🙂

I loved, loved, loved the basic chocolate flavor I went with this time.  The almonds added the BEST nutty flavor underneath so the whole thing tasted like a melted ice cream sundae, nuts and all! Absolutely deeeeelicious!!!
