Do you all know Bev? Surely you all know Bev…she’s hard to miss. Gorgeous, a little cuckoo, and wicked hilarious.

And now she’s bringing two offspring into the universe. Twins. Have mercy!

I love it. This world needs more of the funny.

A bunch of us got together to celebrate her and those babies to be. 

Bev’s not a sweets kind of gal, but I adore her anyway.  Ha. She does love chocolate, though. And likes to drink. Although not right now, obvi. So I made something non-alcoholic – she can spike it in a few weeks!

A glass of this ought to make those babies she’s growing mighty happy. Don’t say I never did anything for you, Bev. :D

Congrats, lady!

Um…yes please!! I made a cherry-chocolate-almond smoothie over the summer – my first time combining those flavors – and it was an instant hit. Still making it…long after cherry season is over!

Those babies are going to be crazy awesome. I can feel it. And I’m pretty sure they’ll have antioxidant superpowers after drinking one of these! Or they’ll just be on a sugar high. Either/or.

This looks amazing and I like that it’s made with frozen fruit-easy to keep on hand any time of the year.

Yes! And because of the fruit, it’s perfectly acceptable for breakfast. *cough*
