Perfectly Pink Pomegranate Smoothies {A Baby Shower for Aimee}

pomegranate smoothies

We’re feeling pretty settled with our four girls, and chances are that even if we do expand our family in the future, it won’t be through another baby. That makes rejoicing with friends when they welcome a new baby into their family even sweeter…especially when they welcome their first little girl!

There’s something so special about little girls, and as many pitying looks and clucking tongues as our family gets when we’re out in public about “poor daddy” and “you better get the gun ready”, I absolutely love having four little girls and wouldn’t have it any other way.

That’s why I’m so excited to join an amazing group of food bloggers to count down the days until Aimee from Simple Bites, who I’m privileged to call a friend, welcomes her first little girl!

Join us for A Baby Shower for Aimee, hosted by Amber at Bluebonnets & Brownies!

These pomegranate smoothies are delicious, with a perfect blend of sweet and tart, and best of all, they’re pink! (The dark pink smoothies are a non-dairy version, while the lighter pink version uses yogurt.) I was also excited to stumble across this paper wine glass charm idea from How About Orange, and I used washi tape (colorful masking tape) to make my own!
