Blueberry-Almond Smoothies–Kacey Hammell
Ontario got hit hard this winter and I’ll be glad to see the end of the glaring white snow. In thinking of Spring, it made me think of smoothies, fruit juices and such. So I thought I’d share one of our favorite recipes that we enjoy a lot in Spring & Summer – and is a great for my son who has Type 1 Diabetes too – as it is a cool, sweet treat to celebrate the warmer weather.

Sweetest Salvation releases this week ~ Thurs, March 21st!
After the deaths of her husband and child, tragedies that she blames herself for, Andrea “Andy” Sheaver has shut herself off from the world. The only place she finds any relief from her shattered heart is Club Splendor, where she and her husband often frequented together. There, Andy submits to pleasure and pain in situations so her grief is forgotten for a little while.
But Hunter Sullivan won’t stand idly by and watch Andy self-destruct. A friend of her husband, and the owner of Club Splendor, Hunter has kept his love for Andy hidden for years. He refuses to think of her at the club, cold and detached as she’s become, looking for an easy fix to take away the pain in her heart. Hunter wants her to vibrant in life again and sets out to prove he is exactly who she needs.
