Normally filled with a piping hot cup of joe each and every morning, my trusty mug has been exposed to a rainbow of smoothies over the last 7 days. And while I’ve always been strong enough to stay away from a detrimental coffee addiction, I like myself some caffeine! The stuff is pretty wild and it’s pretty amazing to think what the world would be like without it. But it’s just as amazing what a little fruit will do for you.
I’ve kept my smoothies pretty standard for the most part relying on frozen fruit (blueberries, raspberries, mango, pineapple, and strawberries in this one) and almond milk for creaminess. And despite my first version which ended up a bit more like jelly after a night in the fridge (no idea how this happened), I’ve really been enjoying my morning meal. And while I won’t equate the brightness of my smoothie to the jolt of a delicious cup of coffee, I think this will be a routine I keep for sure!
Our friend Kelly suggested we try this green smoothie which I’m bummed I haven’t tried yet. I plan on picking up the ingredients today and giving this less sweet version a go.
Blend 2 cucumbers, 3 celery stalks, 2-3 apples, juice from 1 lemon, and two handfuls of spinach. Right before serving blend a banana into the single portion.
Any smoothie lovers out there with some other fantastic recipes?
