Guess how many birthday gifts I had to buy last week alone? Two! It’s true—there are historically more births (and therefore, birthdays) in August and September than any other months.

I sent both of my birthday friends the Sweetest Slice Box. The presentation is fabulous and it’s perfect for any age, boy, girl, man, woman alike. I like to say it’s like having your cake and cookie, too.

Our exclusive birthday sale for blog readers is still going on. Browse our entire collection of Birthday Gifts and use code BBDAY20 at checkout for 20% off any item in the collection!

Now tell me, whose birthdays are you celebrating this month?

Recipe: Avocado Smoothie

Avocado Smoothie

I have this theory that if you ever see something on a menu that sounds really strange, it probably tastes incredible. In fact, I almost always order the most unusual thing on the menu, and I’m rarely disappointed. Some of my most pleasant surprises have been things like a blue cheese tart, bacon ice cream, corn ice cream, and most recently, an avocado smoothie.

A couple of month ago I visited a local cafe and saw Avocado Smoothies on the menu board and had to try it out. Guess how many times I’ve gone back for an Avocado Smoothie since then? Sorry, I can’t reveal embarrassing information like that here.

I have since tried to recreate the smoothie, and I think I’ve finally got it down so that I can share it with you. I hope you’ll try it out–it’s so smooth and creamy and a nice alternative to your regular berry smoothies. The hint of coconut and almond make it even more spectacular.

Avocado Smoothie

2 cups ice cubes
1/2 large, ripe avocado
1 can coconut milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Blend all ingredients for 2-3 minutes in a blender and serve immediately. Makes 3-4 servings.

Try it out and let me know what you think!
