One of our favorite family activities is Movie,Popcorn,Smoothie night. Long name but that's really what we call it. We try to do it at least 2 to 3 times a month. We get the smoothie maker out and get the party started.....
This is a picture of the Back To Basics smoothie maker that we have, ours is white but you get the idea. It is really cool because it has a stir stick that helps keep things flowing correctly in the blender, no clogs. It also has a pouring spout, which is great. It is a little tougher to clean, there are a couple of parts that need to be removed to get thoroughly clean.
We use to cut up fruit and put it with a little milk and make our own smoothies but then we came across Yoplait's frozen smoothie mix and we fell in LOVE!! These mixes are great and definitely worth a try.
Sometimes we make air popped popcorn, sometimes it's microwave it just depends on my mood. The boys love to watch the air popped corn come out of the popper but our popper is a little crazy and unpredictable so it's not unusual to get hit square in the face with a hot piece of popcorn or twenty.
On our next "Move,Popcorn,Smoothie" night we will be watching Astro Boy
Now go pick up some smoothie mix, pick out a great family film and plop you and your fam down on the couches for a fun night together!!
