Balance – Recipe: Strawberry Chocolate Smoothies

As a wife and mom, balance is one of the things that I always seek in my life.

I want to balance work with play.

I want to balance being a wife and being a mom.

I want to balance big celebrations with little events.

And, I want to balance good, fun treats with healthy, yummy food.

While I do spend part of my time baking Summer Sweets for people, I also spend part of my time making sure that my family has a healthy, balanced meal….sometimes followed by a not-so-healthy dessert.

It is all about the balance.

I created these smoothies yesterday morning. I had chosen an unhealthy breakfast first thing in the morning, and I needed to balance that out with something good and healthy, a little pick-me-up.  These smoothies did the trick!  In the midst of balancing work with play, it gave me the energy that I needed to complete it all.
