Summer Dream Smoothie

It’s zero degrees here right now. I can’t think of a better time to have a smoothie, can you?! Cold outside, might as well make yourself cold inside as well. I know that might not sound fun but I drink smoothies every day so I’m used to it. And by used to it I mean I drink it and then lay on the couch covered in blankets for the next hour. But that’s okay. Totally worth it.

This smoothie is a combination of all of my favorite summer fruits. Yes, I know I should buy seasonally. But I think we all need to splurge every once in a while. Fruit splurge!

I actually got a really good deal on the blueberries last week (actually my dad got them, but still) and that inspired this summertime blast.

Watermelon, mango, blueberries, pineapple = perfection.

Mango Blueberry Smoothie

Here I am with another smoothie recipe for you. If you didn’t catch on already to the fact that I’m a smoothie fanatic, then you will soon enough!

I mean, what is better than throwing a bunch of delicious fruits and veggies into your blender and drinking refreshing (and nutritious) drinks?! I can’t think of very many things better than that. Especially on a perfect summer night.

I got home from work tonight a little later than expected and wanted to go on a short run before the sun went down. By the time I got home it was about an hour before my bed time! Yeah, I’m usually in bed around 10. But it’s Friday so I figured that I’d blog some and wait until 11 or so. I know, party animal! Anyways, I decided to just make a quick post-run smoothie to cool me down and eat up some of the delicious blueberries that my mom and I picked yesterday.
