Pinterest: You are a Liar McLiarpants

Can we all stop pinning the banana and almond milk recipes?

It's not that I have anything against banana and almond milk.  They're both quite great.  But they're getting a little overused on Pinterest.
They've become the cool kids on the block, the high school football captain that gets invited to every party.

When you're the cool kid, people spread lies about you.

Have you seen the "recipe" that goes something like this:
Blend a banana, 1/2 cup almond milk and a tablespoon of cocoa powder.  Tastes JUST LIKE a frosty from Wendy's!*

How can you even say that with a straight face? Have you even HAD a frosty from Wendy's?  No.  The above may be delicious (you can decide on your own) but it won't taste like a frosty. It will taste like banana milk.

And then there's my personal favorite Pinterest lie about the cool kid banana.
Mash up a banana and freeze. Then eat. Tastes just like soft serve ice cream!

This one.  This one I fell for.  And guess what?  Mashed up frozen banana tastes exactly like MASHED UP FROZEN. BANANA.  Know what it doesn't taste like? Soft serve ice cream.

*not the exact recipe because a) there are 100 versions and b) they're lies. all lies.

Print, cut apart the pictures and numbers.  Help your child count how many friends are in each picture and then match it to the correct numeral.  Older kids working with sight words can use the word cards to match with.
