Friday’s Feasts | Chocolate Almond Smoothie

One of my favorite ways to make a smoothie. I live a busy lifestyle with never a dull moment and this is a go-to for me when a quick meal or snack is needed.

Kathrina’s go-to smoothie: Chocolate Almond Smoothie
In blender or Vitamix:
1 scoop chocolate protein powder of your choice
1 cup frozen berries of choice (optional)
1 large handful of spinach (or 2-3 handfuls – I love my spinach)
1 cup almond milk (or water)
1 splash of almond extract
1 pinch sea salt (optional – but adds great flavor)
1 tablespoon seeds of choice, such as sunflower (optional)

I can have this smoothie done in a few minutes, even with all the “optional” ingredients. Play with it and have fun! Whatever you do, be sure to try using almond extract in your smoothies. It adds great taste.

Janna & Luke: a Rose given in Marriage

What on earth happened? This blog has been sadly neglected! With the engagement and marriage of Janna, our harpist, change is in the air for Whispering Roses. We couldn’t be more thrilled for Luke and Janna. They are awesome together. We continue to love music and are booking concerts and performances for the spring and summer (more on those coming soon). For now, I will share a few wedding photos! Her adventures are an her blog:


Janna and Luke were married on February 7th, 2015.


Family photo.


Wedding party. It was so special for each of us to be a part of this glorious day.


The four sisters who form Whispering Roses. Did you know that Janna was the one who came up with the name for our band?

It was a beautiful day, and an important new chapter begins for Janna and Luke. It’s a new chapter for Sarah, Krista, Noah and I as well, as we navigate decisions with the band now that Janna is moving out of town. Check back as I resurrect this blog and let you know what’s in store for Whispering Roses in 2015!

I want to give a shout out to Kamirin of Crooked Stream photography, who did an incredible job with the photos, and Kim of Fetching Florals, whose flowers were beyond-stunning.

Cheers until next time,
