We go to Starbucks. A lot. There are five (or more?) in our town and it seems like any time we are going somewhere we pass one and decide to drop in.
Problem: now the kids want to get a special treat when we go in, too. This is a problem. Because kids get expensive!
So, Ryan had a great idea one time about a year ago. He grabbed one of the Naked drinks out of the cooler (we keep this stocked in our fridge at home anyway – family fave!) and asked the barista to blend it with ice into two cups for the kids.
Instant smoothie, y’all!
Or, should I say, TWO GRANDE smoothies!
With their names on them, of course. Because they feel awesome when they hear their names called out at from the pick-up counter.
And for the price of a sugar-filled drink from Sonic (about $1.75 each), the kids have giant servings of super healthy treats and feel very happy, indeed!
Well played, Mr. Myers. Well played.
