I’m been scouring the web for the smoothies and milkshakes that my kiddos would love. Not just because I want to make them drinkable treats, but because my oldest two had their wisdom teeth removed today. Yes, you heard me right. I took two teens to the oral surgeon today and they both had four teeth removed, and thanks to these ridiculous HIPPA laws I could not take any photos or video to share with you how hilarious they both were post surgery. Or share with anyone for that matter. By the time we walked out to the office the funny stuff had really all happened and the nasty stuff was just beginning. Poor kiddos. All in all the rest of the afternoon went pretty well, they both layed low and slept. I made them tomato basil soup, and they ate sherbet, and I made them a smoothie, which was hard to drink because they can’t suck from a straw yet, or they might suck the sockets out or something er another. We really don’t want any sockets sucked out, so I think I will hold off for a day or two to start whipping up smoothies like a boss.
However in the meantime I thought I would share with you what I found. I only chose smoothies and milkshakes I thought Noah and Ainslie would love. I saw many more that looked divine. Man there is a whole world of smoothies out there….sheesh who knew?! And milkshakes dang, July is National Ice Cream month so there is no shortage of ice cream and milk shake recipes on the world wide web.
Ok without further ado, here is what I have to share with you!

Oh my there you have it 25 Milkshakes and Smoothies! My Vitamix is going to burning the midnight oil this weekend! Have you had your wisdom teeth out? Anyone in your home have theirs out recently? Any good anesthesia stories? I will tell you both of my kids were so funny in their own way. I’m going to be giggle about it for weeks. I think they are both pretty chill, and the heart monitor confirmed it, it kept going off because they were so relaxed about the whole thing. My son was practically flat lining and that’s hyper for him! Ainslie couldn’t decide if she wanted to laugh or cry afterwards….I could relate with her, this is how I’ve pretty much felt everyday since I turned 40. I think it’s called hysterical, they were for sure hysterical! Well I should go and perform my nursely duties, it’s pain meds and sherbet o’clock!
Have a great weekend! Sheila
Great ideas for smoothies – I am going to attempt the Dulce De Leche milkshake first – love that flavor! And surprise for me – I am not actually receiving your posts!!!! I’ve just been going to your blog on my on to catch up with whatever you were posting about, but suddenly – you are in my
in-box. Yeah!! I remember those wisdom tooth events – both of our daughters responded so differently. Good luck.
Janey, Yeh so glad I was in your inbox again, I have been having some major technical issue both user related ;P and computer related! Hope you are well! xox Sheila
it’s suppose to be ‘now actually receiving your posts ‘ – scratch the ‘not’ sorry.

I can’t wait for the verdict. They all sound delicious!
Sara Tetreault says
Thanks for this list….with one teenager’s wisdom teeth out last week and my other teen’s getting yanked in 2 weeks, I’ll need this!!
Hope everyone is back to normal soon…

Oh, so happy when I opened my email today and found a note from you!! Seems like it’s been forever since I’ve had you pop up in my mailbox.
Sounds like you’re handling the death and burial of 8 wisdom teeth very well. I remember that awful event far too well – and it was over 40 years ago! Sounds like it all happens about the same way now.
Looking forward to the salad recipe tomorrow – it sounds delicious – my fav vegetable, or is it a fruit?? Your photos and description of your trip make me want to go to wine country also. It’s on my bucket list! Glad to know you’re back safe and sound.
Thanks for stopping in! It’s always nice to see you pop up in my comments! Hope your summer is going well.
