Temptation Thursday!

“Drink moderately, for drunkenness neither keeps a secret, nor observes a promise”
-Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

Hello! Can you believe that is is Thursday already? I can't! Today I have two drink recipes to share with you - one with and one without alcohol. However, the alcoholic drink tastes great without the vodka also! The shake is a great way to start your morning, my kids love them for breakfast! Enjoy!

I'm not much for alcoholic drinks, but this shake, with the bananas and orange marmalade looks like it would be soo good! Orange juice and bananas alone make a great shake! (With frozen bananas)
