Salty, Sweet, Pink Chocolate Party Popcorn!

Buttery, salty popcorn - good
Pretzels - good
M&M's - good
Melted white chocolate - good
Put it all together and BOO-YA! The perfect pink party popcorn! 
It's pretty self explanatory, but here are some tips and pictures on how we put everything together. 
We air popped the mushroom kernel corn from Orson Gygi. It pops up bigger and fluffier in my opinion. But you can use ANY kind of popcorn, honestly.   
 Then we broke up pretzel sticks, added a little salt and drizzled melted butter over the top of everything.
Then we melted white chocolate, just in the microwave, and poured it all over the pretzel and popcorn mixture.


Our Ugly, Favorite, Kid-Friendly Chocolate Protein Shake

Guys, this isn't pretty okay.
 Does it taste good? Uh, YEAH! But freak, I just want to share a kid-friendly smoothie recipe that I've found works, and not stress over staging something with crazy props, besides a straw. 
So... here we go. 

This is my kids' favorite go-to smoothie this Summer. 
My best friend perfected it, and now I get to share it :)

What you'll need:
1 scoop of Chocolate Protein Powder
2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa
Banana (however much you want)
A scoop of Peanut Butter (I use PB fit. It's less messy and a lot lower in sugar)
1-2 cups Almond Milk
1 heaping handful of Spinach
2 cups Ice

Throw it together in your blender, shake it all around... that's what it's all about! (hey!)
yes... I'm a nerd.

Ta-da! Healthy protein shake, WITH veggies that they won't even taste. BOOM!

If it's too "green" looking for your kids, do less spinach, or put it in a cup that they can't see through.
OR OR OR... call it "Hulk juice".
Kids will fall for anything, right? lol.
