Fresh strawberry Mango Cooler for mom’s who want to look cool while they drink
( non -alcoholic beverage) As an nursing mother – This drink had plenty of fruits- I LOVED IT!
How many times have you been to a restaurant and want the fruity drink and they all have alcohol?
Well let me tell you MOM-
You now have a fruity drink even your non – nursing MFF  ( mom friend forever )
will order.

Not only did CPK  California Pizza Kitchen allow me to eat their food, they let me in the kitchen for a full experience. When I tell you that I had a good time  with CPK. I had a wonderful -good time!
Cooking beside a chef in a restaurant kitchen a processed dinner making mom’s dream. Hey CPK send me one of those whipped cream thingies will ya ! The power of that thingie almost blew me away. Can you imagine having the whipped cream thingie at your disposal to whip cream burger, tuna , tortilla chips , spaghetti . OKAY ,OKAY maybe that’s a little extreme.But, who ever thought up the idea to put whipped cream on a pizza.
In the End you have to visit Ca Pizza Kitchen in your area to taste for yourself.
