Fun In Louisville #4-Smoothie King #Giveaway


Our family loves smoothies. We make them at home regularly, and also enjoy visiting various smoothie cafes and such to try new flavors. On our recent trip to Louisville we were able to try one that we haven't ever been to before, although I had heard of it, Smoothie King. Smoothie King is unique in that it really has a focus on healthy smoothies, made with fresh, healthy ingredients. Yes, they have a "dessert smoothie" menu as well, but most of their options are fitness, slim down, or wellness smoothies.


We visited the Smoothie King in downtown Louisville on our way into the city. We were greeted by a young lady behind the counter, who was very patient  and helpful with all our questions and deliberating! Eventually each of us chose a smoothie; I opted for the Passion Passport, C had the Island Impact, M chose Peanut Power Plus Chocolate, and the other M had Banana Berry. Let me just say, it was very hard trying to choose one smoothie! Yes, we did some sharing so each of us was able to have a few sips of the other flavors as well. 




The Passion Passport is a blend of bananas, passion fruit juice blend, papaya juice blend, mango juice blend, turbinado, and soy protein. It was very refreshing; I loved all the different fruits! At home we use mainly more basic ingredients; bananas, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, orange juice, etc. So it was nice to have some different, more "exotic" fruits for once. Definitely a flavor I would have again, after I'm done trying the other 10+ smoothies I'd like from Smoothie King!


The Peanut Power Plus Chocolate was also a hit; peanut butter, bananas, non-fat milk, turbinado, soy protein, and cocoa. Even though this is a "dessert" style smoothie, from the Take a Break menu, this still packs a good protein wallop, with 24 grams in a 20 ounce smoothie! It was very good too; you can't go wrong combining peanut butter and chocolate. 



I think the unanimous favorite of all the smoothies, however, was C's Island Impact. Pineapple, mango sorbet, mango juice blend, papaya juice blend, and vanilla protein blend combine for a very delicious smoothie! 



We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Smoothie King, and all the smoothies were great. I will be checking on future trips for Smoothie Kings where we're going; unfortunately our closest location is 2 hours away. But, it makes for something to look forward to on road trips and vacations!


Smoothie King graciously sent me a gift card to giveaway to one of our readers!!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.

This way you can get used to the culture, and will know in advance whether or not the country is somewhere that you’d actually like to live. 2. Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
