Happy Monday, everyone! Hope your weekend was fantastic and restful. It's been so warm recently, and already feels like summer has arrived. We've been taking trips to the farmer's market, and getting out to the beach whenever there's a moment of free time. It's amazing what 30 minutes in the sun does for your body and mind..I always come back from the beach feeling refreshed and happy (and hopefully a little tanner, too!). If there's one thing I enjoy most about the summer season, it's actually the arrival of all the fresh fruit in the stores. Say hello to pineapples, bananas, papayas, sweet melons and other delights, yum! With all this fruit, it's fun to try out different smoothie recipes, especially on those crazy warm days, or for a simple breakfast option when you're on the go. I recently found and tried this guide, and thought you might enjoy it also...especially when you have a bunch of random ingredients in the pantry; this list may spark new combination ideas! For those of you who are a little wary about the whole "green" smoothie idea, I suggest you try only a handful to a cup of spinach in a smoothie. You won't taste any of the flavor as it gets blended in with the fruit, but you'll still get the benefits of the greens. Trust me, it's always more delicious than it might seem! :)
Have a favorite recipe? Do tell!
Have a great week!
