So I’m going to start this off by talking about the weather.
Have I run out of things to talk about? No. I don’t think that’s possible for me. But the weather here has been nothing but gray and depressing lately. It’s april, and all I see are dreary skies and drizzle everywhere I go.
In weather like this, I often find myself fantasizing about laying on a beach somewhere under a large umbrella (this white girl burns at the drop of a hat!) with a light and fruity drink in my hand.
I love that fantasy.
Sadly, just before the cabana boy enters this scenario, Mini Chef will walk up to me and inform me that he has just sneezed the contents of his lunch all over the couch, and I’m immediately (and rather rudely, I might add) transported back to reality.
Gotta love motherhood.
So in the interest of maintaining at least some small amount of my very imaginary tan, I thought I’d come up with a smoothie recipe that would be at least somewhat close to what I had in mind during that fantasy.
I’ll let you be the judge. Is this smoothie “beach-worthy”?
NOTE: For those doing the No Sugar Challenge, this entire recipe equals 2 servings of the 3 allowed fruit servings per day.
